There are extraordinarily few that meet the specific criteria. 1. An iconic shape that has been around for decades with minimal change. 2. A robust support system that keeps those cars active. 3. An affluent customer base that is willing to spend huge amounts to gaze at heritage through titanium armed rose tinted glasses. 4. A significant change in the character of the new model that immediately boosts the values of the old ones enouhh that the money required to "correct" them is possibly an investment. Nobody besides Porsche meets all of those. That said there are some interesting restomods for a bunch of cars that can be built to a price. That price is probably in the neighborhood of 90% of the MSRP of a brand new model, if it exists. My list EG Civic hatch Integra Type R Prelude Rwd 2 door Datsuns Supra Rwd Corollas and Celicas Corvette F-body Mustang 3-series BMW -SL Mercedes Jaguars before the Ford era Range Rovers before the Ford era 3xx Ferraris

The land rover defender meets those criteria. They are also rare enough here to command a premium price.
