Classic car insurer Hagerty is predicting which cars will become top collectibles within the next 25 years. In its annual ?Hot List,? Hagerty says all the cars picked this year have the ?golden combination of performance, handling, safety, and styling? that will keep them desirable for a good long time.

Hagerty?s first pick is the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata because of its reliability and nimble handling- characteristics. Second on the list is the Ford Focus RS, which is finally coming to U.S. shores for the 2016 model year. ?Look for Ford to snap up the crowd that Mitsubishi deserted when it discontinued the Evo,? Hagerty asserts.
