And yes, we’ll all die at some point. You’re really not making much sense, that argument holds true for everything and anything, which has nothing specifically to do with air cooled Porsche’s.
Production numbers don't mean squat when demand evaporates.
And guess what? 10,000 years from now, no one will want your rare 911.

There are many rare stamps and coins with VERY low production numbers.
Guess what? They are worthless now. No one wants them. Demand collapsed.

Hummels used to be worth a lot of money.

So yea, every one of our cars is heading to its scrap value.

Whatever you say sugarwood. I better get rid of all of my rare cars right now because theyíll be worthless in 10,000 years. For that matter, I should get rid of everything based on this totally nonsensical way of thinking.

Your commentary is better suited for some philosophical forum, it is very out of place here on Pelican. Youíre being a total idiot.

You really went off the deep end here, 10,000 years from now? really this is what concerns you or you think any body's talking about on a Porsche market place discussion thread?

If you are going to an enthusiast forum for a market analysis you're going to have a bad time.

I think you would lose anybody if you try and talk market analysis 10,000 years from now.

Actually I would think that a running 911 would be a priceless artifact 10,000 years from now. Heck we have boats from Egypt in museums and they are worth millions and that was only a couple thousand years ago.

Itís total gibberish - all of it. If there were a thread for the most idiotic posts on Pelican, this one would be in its top 10. I canít wait to see what his next one is all about. Obviously none of us are ďthinking biggerĒ like sugarwood is. But unfortunately I wouldnít call any of this thinking bigger. Iíd call it nutty. Iíd call it crazy. Iíd call it looney tunes. Iíd even call it borderline certifiable. Maybe his meds are off...maybe thatís where this nonsense is coming from.

There is no truth. It is all subjective. What is life?

Sell me your long hood for 20k. We are all returning to dust.

Dayumn, and I even posted nonsense in that thread! Guess I'll blame my memory loss on the aging process (or over exposure to porn?!?! )!

Tis true, and sugar wood is right as well. What does it all matter when there is no demand? And for a lot of our cars there isn't much demand anymore, we just don't want to admit it.

I had to Google what a Hummel was. They're like German Precious Moments?

10,000 years is not to be taken literally.

It illustrates the logical refutation of facile assertions that "these items can only rise in value because of low production numbers and practical utility".

No. In our lifetimes, we've already seen demand decline for the model T, the '32 Ford, the '57 Chevy T,... and the latest segment, the 60s muscle car, as the cruise night cohort slowly migrates to nursing homes.

Slowly, and within your lifetime, you will see demand diminish as generations die off. For the slow to understand, I used 10,000 years to emphasize the point. Demand will go down, not up, if you look at the right scale.

Eventually... You won't be able to give your "57 Chevy" away. Drive on!
