Default 2000 Cobra R Future Values

Hey guys! I want some opinions if you donít mind giving them. I have been considering buying a very low mileage 2000 Cobra R. The car has a lot of documentation and is in near perfect condition. Production was low with only 300 cars made. My question is do you feel this car will gain considerably in value over time or is it just too new to do so? Thanks!

These cars will never be valued like the 60's versions. Too many people put them away when new. In the old days they were run hard and put away wet.

I see 1990's SS Camaros with low mileage/never out in rain going dirt cheap.

If you like it, the price is right, buy it.

I think they'll rise in value. A lot of people thought Foxbodys wouldn't ever be worth anything, but they're slowly but surely climbing. Surely New Edge cars will eventually, and this being a Cobra R, it's all but guaranteed to become a collectible.

Look at the Buick GNX. They were bought by many and immediately stored, and it's paying off big time.

Fun fact: In order to purchase a 1993, and 1995 Cobra R, you had to have a valid racing license, because Ford didn't want them stashed away and never driven. I know this is about the 2000s, which didn't require that, but I just love that fact.
My grandfather's cars:
'67 Chevelle 396/325 (L78 heads), Gold (now Bolero Red), 4.56
'68 Camaro SS (454, possible L78) LeMans Blue, black deluxe interior, black vinyl top. 3.73
'87 Grand National
'89 Mustang GT- Many mods.
None are stock.
