The future of classics. 

The experts at ClassicCars.com have picked five 2018 cars that meet their expectations to become the next classics. So what exactly makes a classic car?

Roger Falcione, ClassicCars.com CEO, says while rarity is important, it also helps if "they're cool cars." Originality also tops the list, paired with a range of pricing, helping to make the cars possibly affordable to different levels of collectors or car enthusiasts.

And the final expectation is that the cars are "great cars already."

Falcione's list includes Fiat Chrysler's (FCAU) - Get Report Alfa Romeo 4C, General Motors' (GM) - Get Report Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the Dodge Demon, the Ford (F) - Get Report GT and the Lexus LC Inspiration.

And, finally, "they're fun cars to drive right now."
