    Mark my words May 2021. A Prius with under 20k miles in pristine condition as collectible in 20 years would worth more than the price it was sold new at the dealer!

    For example a 1998 Toyota Supra Turbo in excellent condition sells today for $70-$120k.

    I can't tell from the pictures in the ad if it has heated seats or not.

    And 11k invested at 10% annual would be 74k in 20 years....

    Any idea why? is it because cars that just don't get used tend to fall apart?

    here we go, a real comparison between interesting vs buying a thing that will depreciate

    That would take a computer hack to roll back the digital odometer on a Prius. It's not like the good ol' days when the odometer was a mechanical device.

    all it would actually take is the purchase of a combination meter.....and about an hour to swap it out. Or actually make the electronics to reprogram it, which has already been done.

    Its a non touring model, so no 16" wheels, larger spoiler, and tuned suspension. Wonder who buys a car thats made to be driven and only drives under 2k miles a year. Theres a heck of a lot more fun vehicles to drive for about the same price as a prius and a wiser choice if I wasnt putting that many miles a year. You wont have to deal with a hv battery dying for one.
