Welcome to Tomorrow's Classics! This website has a simple purpose: Share beautiful stories of great luxury cars from the 1980’s and 1990’s. Those automobiles are on their way to become remarkable classics right now. They are "Tomorrow's Classics".
Do you own a car that qualifies as a Tomorrow's Classic? Do you have a story about this car to share? If so, I'd be thrilled to hear from you and publish your car's story on this site. Some photographs and a little background text is all it takes!
When you own a special car, taking it on a special road trip is probably something that keeps you dreaming. In many cases, you end up doing Sunday afternoon trips, which is fine but maybe not the fulfillment of your dreams. Others may take it out for a long weekend, which is better but still leaves room for imagination. Fantasize about more than that? Well, meet Anthony Coyne, a London-based business owner, and his partner, Californian ex-pat Renée Logsdon. First things first: Let’s talk cars. Anthony is a Porsche lover whose Porsche journey began 12 years ago, with a 986 Boxster S. This made way
This Alfa Romeo is special in multiple ways: First of all, the Guilia GT is a stylistic icon. There are few models that have shaped Alfa’s aesthetic sport image as much as this one. It is a true icon that shaped the “Alfa Romeo myth” which lives on until today. Secondly, this one is the late top model, the “2000 GT Veloce”.

Throwback to October 23rd, 1990: The W126 S-Class had been in production for over ten years, as this dark blue beauty leaves production in Stuttgart. It is only a few months until the all-new W140 S-Class will debut in Geneva, but the W126 was still immensely popular so that sales continued well into 1991.

The W126 in this story is not an average S-Class, though: It is nothing less than the power-play top-model 560 SEL. It was introduced in 1987
No question, the BMW 750iL from BMW’s E32 model range is a truly special car: It’s the first German 12 cylinder car (at least after World War II), it came with a ton of technological innovation (such as adaptive damping and steering) and I think it looked really cool (to me, this is the best looking 7 series). The lifetime story of this specific one with the VIN number WBAGC810003055241 is as special as the 750iL itself, I suppose: It left the factory in Munich on 22 October 1988 as a Japan specified version. It was ordered in burgundy red (“Burgundrot Metallic”) with black leather
