Mk1 MX5 and Eunos Roadster seem to be surprising at the moment.
We have seen quite a few cars changing hands for between £3,000 and £6,000 recently. Earlier in the year, a very low mileage, concours winning car sold for £10,000 and there are a few being advertised around that sort of money today.
Remembering that it's the end of the season so prices should be falling. We've been looking at the possible reasons why this is happening and are wondering what will happen next.
What do we think is going on?
All these things together are driving prices higher.
Even with investors driving prices of more expensive classic cars upwards. Were there to be a fall, like there was in the 80's, the MX5 will miss that because it won't be the type of car those people will buy.
What does this mean for MK1 owners?
Is the Mk1 an investment? No, not unless you have a very long term view.
Are Mk1s good value for money? Yes, without doubt.
Is it a great car to drive? Yes, of course!
If you are in the position to buy one and are looking for a good all round sports car, then you should be buying a MK1 MX5. But be careful, make sure you have a good read of our website or even bring the car to us (before you buy it) than you'll know exactly what you are getting into.
We believe the MK1 MX5 (Eunos Roadster) will be a "classic".
