Are These the Classics of the Future?

( – Going by the definition of a classic car, any vehicle over a certain age, would be eligible for the branding. However, it takes more than just age to make a classic. Instead, a vehicle needs to be appealing and attractive even. It also needs to have some sort of collectibility, whether that be based on popularity or rarity. Do any of these cars meet the necessary standards to become the future classics?

Rolls-Royce Spectre

One look at the name, and it’s easy to see why this car has the potential to become a collector’s dream and a classic. The Spectre is an all-electric luxury sedan with an impressive 577 horsepower. It won’t be the most competitively-priced electric vehicle on the market, but it sure will be highly sought after. And, with a name like Rolls-Royce, desirability isn’t even a question. 

Audi SQ8 e-tron

While not as powerful as the Spectre, Audi’s SQ8 e-tron comes in a base or Sportback body and an impressive 496 horsepower electric powertrain. The electric Audi offers all the luxury other models of the brand have but with a sportier appearance and feistier accelerator. It may very well be a luxury sedan in a performance car’s body. Audi enjoys a fair amount of demand, and with a price tag much lower than other cars on this list, it’s plenty attractive. 

Cadillac Celestiq

Cadillac has a long history of making classic and collectible cars. However, the American luxury manufacturer lives in the shadows of European brands. The Celestiq could be the one to change that. Unlike other Cadillacs, this electric sedan, with dual motors capable of delivering 600 horsepower, will be built to order in the truest sense.

Instead of manufacturing the vehicle on an assembly line by machines, Cadillac will individually handcraft the Celestiq, taking on more of a Rolls-Royce approach. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has estimated the price of its new electric flagship to be over $300,000. Add in another $100k, and you could buy the Spectre. 

None of these cars will be classics anytime soon, but they certainly meet all the criteria to be one in the future. Or do they? Only time will tell.
