Some things get better with age and, surprisingly, certain
used cars
fall into that category. While many vehicles deplete in
as they get older, a select few vehicles have increased. We’ve compiled a list of four cars that have held their value and are actually worth more today than their original MSRP. 

Porsche 911 

Out of all the used cars
examined in their depreciation study, the Porsche 911 not only held its value the best, and actually gained value. iSeeCars analyzed the value of many vehicles over a three- and five-year timespan, and found the average vehicle depreciated by about 16.9% in three years. But, the Porsche 911 actually appreciated in value at 5.7% in the last three years.
That means, the Porsche 911 has gained an equivalent value of over $10,000, and that many Porsche 911 models are selling today for well over $100,000. 

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid 

The second vehicle with the best value according to iSeeCars’ study is the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. Although no vehicle came close to the 5.7% appreciation the Porsche 911 saw, the RAV4 Hybrid still saw an appreciation value of 2.5%, or about $883 in value. 
The increase in value for this vehicle is extremely impressive, as
reports that hybrid cars are twice as vulnerable to issues with
supply chain
than gas-powered vehicles. 

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited was found to have an appreciation value extremely close to the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid at 2.0%, or gaining about $880 on its MSRP. While the price increase goes from just about $44,000 to $45,000, the appreciation is still unexpected as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has received poor reliability ratings.
Jeep Wrangler
also saw a very slight appreciation at 0.3%, or an increase of about $90 on MSRP. While it isn’t much, not many other car brands can say two of their used vehicles are worth more than their new MSRP.

Porsche 718 Cayman

Perhaps the only car brand with significant increases on MSRP of their used vehicles is Porsche, with the final vehicle iSeeCars identifying as appreciating in value as the
Porsche 718 Cayman
. The Porsche 718 Cayman saw an increase of 1.8% in value, or roughly $1,300. 
While it doesn’t come close to the $10,000 gain of its sibling vehicle, the Porsche 911 saw, a $1,000 increase is pretty good, considering most used cars lose value overtime.
