    1. No I think it’s the total production of serial models of other each car to its own manufacturer
      Like all 2015 ford gt
      porsche Carrera gt,
      All 918 sypder etc..

    2. He’s explaining it like the market cap for company, which equals the stock price multiplied by the quantity of stock. For example, a company with a $10 stock price and 100,000 of that stock would have a market cap of $1,000,000.

      For the cars, the market cap he’s talking about would be the market price of the car multiplied by how many of those cars exist. So if the Porsche 918 had a average market price of $1.5M and there are 1000 of them, them the market cap would be $1.5B.

  1. I’m not sure your audience is smart enough to understand what you are saying.

    The total value of every one of these cars is $x.x billion. More cars made = less value towards each individual car

    Doug is trying to prove out that the value of these cars is dictated by the number of the cars produced

    1. The car manufacturers know what they’re doing when they make limited production run cars. It’s the exact same as the diamond market. Scarcity drives prices, even with incredibly bad cars. The difference between cars and diamonds is that there are plenty more diamonds than are released into the market, whereas cars are typically made to sell. Obviously some car manufacturers do hold onto a couple of cars, although they typically keep them as sort of a museum piece.

    2. No.. it’s more of a way to summarize the value of pool of cars.. I just disagree with the approach. It works for companies because they have a set number of shares outstanding from IPO and they are each equal.. all cars are different.. values vary wildly within one “company” of stocks.. or in this case cars.

  2. It’s impressive that the 250 gto’s are valued at a cap of 1.8 billion knowing how few there and their insane value, compared to other said cars in this list

  3. This whole market cap thing doesn’t work because each car is traded as it’s own company.. no two shares are the same.. better off looking at the charts of sales on BaT etc.. the sales points with trend lines over time.. way more useful.

  4. Nope. Look at the exotic car market before quantitative easing took place? Its a scam like most flipper scams. San Francisco real estate anyone?
