Supercars on the Rise

Porsche 911 991.2 Speedster. The Speedster is the swansong of the highly successful 991 series of the 911. The car celebrates the 911’s 70th anniversary. A limited production run (356 - 997 generation Speedsters were made) should bring a premium.
McLaren Senna. Demand is now going up after people understand the car better and its unique specs, helping to boost its value. Buyers are now willing to pay a premium.
Ferrari 488 Pista. Premiums have reached 150-200k Euros on top of the list price.
While the top dollar LaFerrari starts to decrease in value just because it's not really "new" anymore, demand for the Ferrari Enzo (400 produced between 2002 and 2004) with low mileage and in top condition has increased. Expect 2m Euros.

1966 Ferrari Dino Berlinetta GT - $ 3m

A 1966 Ferrari Dino Berlinetta GT headed to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance at Gooding and Company in 2019. What makes this 1966 Ferrari Dino Berlinetta GT special are two things. The first is that it’s not a production model. It’s a prototype that Ferrari used for testing and development. Ferrari built 152 units of the production Dino Berlinetta GT, making it both rare and valuable.
For this rare piece of Ferrari history, Gooding expected someone to spend top dollar for a truly one-of-a-kind, and they were not disappointed. $3,080,000
