All have sticker prices of below $100,000.

Among the most notable inclusions is the Mazda MX-5 Miata, selling at $24,195 (making it the lowest valued car on the list).

The model has been in production since the late 1990s, with the present lot representing its third generation.

At the other end of the scale, the 2016 Lotus Evora 400 skids under the bar with an asking price of $89,900.

Hagerty explains the Evora 400 is "the brand's quickest and most powerful series-produced car ever, but it doesn't sacrifice Lotus' trademark lightness."

Here's the full list:

Mazda MX-5 Miata ($24,915)

Ford Focus RS ($35,730)

Chevrolet Camaro SS ($37,295)

BMW M2 ($51,700)

Ford Mustang GT350R ($62,195)

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider ($65,900)

Porsche Cayman GT4 ($84,600)

2016 Dodge Viper SRT Coupe ($89,090)

Cadillac ATS-V ($60,465)  

2016 Lotus Evora 400 ($89,900)

While predicting future classics is notoriously difficult, it's clear 2016 offers a bumper crop of potential candidates.  

Company CEO McKeel Hagerty explained: "Despite all the negative talk about the future of the car, this is one of the most exciting times to be a car enthusiast.

"Manufacturers seem to have found the golden combination of performance, handling, safety and styling. The cars on this list check all of these boxes and will make them desirable for years to come."
