Wait until this one hits BaT....

I’m happy these cars are finally appreciating. I bought mine on its I lowest point around where clean ones were fetching for cheap. 2009 was the year of purchase and still have her till this day. I don’t see myself ever selling my car but if I were to cross that bridge, i would be happy the whole ride was worth it.

I'm unusually pissed that that Graham Rahal posted such am assinine thing in the comments. It'll just go to his family's dealership network.

They’re trying their best to influence the market and once they are able to do it, no one will be able to afford the car. No clue why they do what they do besides making that money.

Dealerships and investment firms are racing to buy CRs, because you can control the entire supply. For what amounts to a small investment for these corporations, you could own LITERALLY every 2009 CR and likely double your investment.

There were 355 made, and only EIGHT yellow with A/C. For something like $2.5mm to $3mm an exotic car dealership could own nearly 10% of all 2009 CRs made.

...or it could be a bubble waiting to pop. Dealerships or individual resellers are trying to depict a false demand for the car when it’s just them buying and selling them on the market. Actual people who want the car and intent to keep it will simply not buy it at those inflated prices. It has happened to certain Porsche models.

So when will the NSX market crash? Would love to get one but they are just way overpriced for what they are.

Doubt if that market will ever burst. The new NSX took such a long time to release and the hefty price has caused the NA1/NA2 models to appreciate. Pretty confident that they'll keep going up.

Interest in cars overall has dropped dramatically over the past couple of decades. How many successive generations with little interest in cars do we have to go through before values begin to drop on the likes of the S2000 or the NSX? How many more generations will it take before almost no one understands how to drive a car with three pedals? Sure, there will always be some who both like sports cars and enjoy driving them, but in a few more decades will there be enough demand for those remaining people to bid against each other for cars like these?
