Series 1 Elise would be a good one that is not over the top in price.

I expect the cars that have few driver aids may be at a premium in 20 years as all the cars then will be so wired that people will want a car that still has a steering wheel to do the Drive to the Eagle.

Oh look daddy what's that round thing in front of that seat?

I agree with you there - I'm already thinking anything newer than about 2000 is too gizmo laden to offer enough grins. There is no argument that newer stuff is faster and safer, but lately I'm driving for fun, not sheep stations and it's been a long time since a traffic light grand prix was even mildly entertaining...

Idiot  :)

Its about value in 20 years as well, that dodgy lady you know will probably not age gracefully over that time!

like I said before, TVR
has to be the fastest cars ever made without ABS or traction control

specific tvr's
nobles IMO will sell the week they are advertised due to rarity and of course, the no driver aids

affordable collectable Porsches, that are any good, would be the 1988 930... 5 speed box, utterly tractable and usable, supremmemememly fast and sound great...

trouble is......

Agreed, those do meet the criteria I mentioned and are faster than a TVR, but not by much
In a choice between an F40 and a TVR id take the Ferrari in a heartbeat
F40 and F50 are already classics though, they were before one was even sold

A Cerbera does the 0-60 in 3.9, F40 3.8, F50 3.7
Im sure the Ferraris will wipe the floor in most other areas of performance, except for cost and comfort, the inside of a TVR is full of bizzarre leather and confusing knobs everywhere, and you can get one for under $80k
