If you only care about depreciation, then the other posters already answered your question.
I would highly suggest a used 10 speed bicycle from 1983 as your primary mode of transportation if you only care about depreciation.
Sorry but you're the one who doesn't get it. I just wanted a list of cars that people think would hold value well. Obviously I know cars are just about the worst investment from a financial standpoint. I purposely did not include details hoping that people would leave a variety of suggestions without patronizing. I was hoping to generate many ideas from other drivers since last I checked, this is a car forum with other driving enthusiasts. So much for that idea. But since you need specifics, assume we're looking a performance-oriented DD, 2-4 doors ok, prefer no convertibles, fuel economy in double digits. Any other questions?
So I ask again, what are some cars will suffer the least depreciation least in 1-2 years?
