So do you guys think the S3 TS-50 will hold value ?

Just wondering.

been looking for TS-50 / TE in the traing post and the like and notice 2 things.

One there are not too many avalible at all. People are holding onto them.

And secondly the prices are very very good. i mean New oak ford has a silver one for 49 i think .

remmebr the xr6 turbo would probably only be around 45.


It would be nice to be able to buy one in a year or 2.
How much do you think it will depriciate?

Cheers

Will

There weren't all that many T series vehicles sold.

I would think the S3 T Series will hold it's value much better due to the 250kw's and the bolder, bigger bodykit and rear wing.

The XR6 Turbo IMO has nothing on a T3, and right now they're a bargain in the 45 - 50k range.

TS50 was 65+ new, you can get one for low 50s (or less). TE50 was 55+ new and you can get a new one for around mid 40s. I think the fact that it has lost 20% in the 7 months since the BA went on sale is likely to be NOT indicative of its resale in 3 years from when they were new - ie 2005. I reckon by then, you will be able to get a series 3 TS for around the 37-42 mark, with the TE a couple of grand under that (say 30-35).

But I'm just speculating, of course!

I doubt highly that these, the pinacle of tickford's engineering, and the last tickford will drop in value too much. These cars were bought by Ford fans in the beginning, and will continue to be as long as they live.

I'm not sure on this, but weren't they (and aren't they) the fastst Falcon you can get?

They were good, but I think the new FPVs (and probably even the XR6T) are quicker than them. But they were/are a good thing!

I think the T3 is actually the quickest car Ford has built.
Not entirely certain, but I believe they acheived excellent times, and no one has complained about the handling

If you look at the "classic" Fords they are not always the fastest nor the biggest sellers, they are the ones that people like.
e.g. XR GT, XC Cobra, XB GT, EB GT, EL GT all are very popular even though none of them are really fast compared to a VL Turbo or a Skyline.
The T3 is a really great car and I nearly bought one instead of my GTP. Maybe one day if I get rich I will buy one along with all the other stuff I have mentioned (and a P3 GTHO etc.....)
I reckon that the T3 will be worth more in 5 years than it is now.

I would take a T3 over a GT anyday. That bodykit is just bloody unreal. It works so well with the car. You can see a T3 a mile away. Some lucky bugger has a TE50 (Blueprint) near my work - i see him most days cruising around - lucky, lucky man.

The TS50 T3 was the best looking AU ever. They finally got the styling right with that model - with the aid of some plastic, but it looks bloody horny.
