5: BMW 525i

What is it about the 525i that has made the car so popular? Well, the BMW engineering and the fact that this generation of the car came with an optional V8 engine. To get V8 power in a sedan that small in size made for a fun driving experience and collectors are starting to realize that (via Cars Guide).

All of a sudden, this generation of the BMW has become more sought after than the previous cars, and that means the price will only rise. The 525i offered a lot of luxury for the period and continues to offer a lot of advancements. The car was fun to drive and stylish at the same time while maintaining a reasonable resale value.

4: Cadillac CTS-V

The original CTS-V was a breath of fresh air for the brand as it introduced Corvette power to an otherwise sedate car. The CTS-V was a hot seller for GM and managed to stay on the market for a long time. The performance of the CTS-V is still competitive today and there are many upgrades for this car (via Motor Trend).

The CTS-V model was offered in several different styles over the years but the original is still the most fun to drive. For the price you just can’t go wrong with the exceptional build quality and off-the-line performance. The CTS-V is by far one of the most exceptional sports cars in quite a while.

3: Mercedes-Benz 600SL

There was a time when the 600SL was the headliner in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, and with good reason. This car was a performance beast. The build quality of the 600SL was also far ahead of its time as this car has many tech features that you still see today (via Car Gurus).

The 600SL has remained a seemingly affordable option on the used car market but you can bet that the value of these cars is only going to increase. Classic Mercedes-Benz models are becoming harder to come by and this one has a one-of-a-kind look that very few cars have.

2: Lexus IS200

The IS200 has long been a popular car since the early 2000s and its stellar build quality and decent performance were behind that. The IS200 was never going to win any races but that wasn’t the point of the car. Lexus had introduced the model as an entry-level offering to bring more customers into dealerships (via Consumer Reports).

That doesn’t mean that the IS200 is a bad car because with a stick shift it is quite the opposite. As with most Lexus products, the high-quality build and reliability are major selling points. As time goes on and more people want to reminisce about the 2000s, this car will only get more popular.

1: Porsche Cayenne

The Cayenne was a popular model for Porsche from the first day it hit the market. It turned out people did want a Porsche SUV after all. The Cayenne has continued to be a successful model in the lineup but original models are relatively cheap when you consider the performance the car has (via Car & Driver).

As these early 2000s examples start to become collector’s items, you’ll see the price gradually rise. But if you want something fun to drive and has some of the best performance on the road today, you can’t go wrong. The first-generation Cayenne is an under-appreciated example of fine engineering.
