Yes, it seems that exotic cars hold their value surprisingly well.
Perhaps the perception that a 10 year old Porsche 911 or a Ferrari
is still a 911 or a Ferrari, and you can't enter the club by the back
door, so to speak. Ordinary common garden cars drop to 40% by 3 years.
then by 40-50% for every following 3 years. Cars that drop quickly
may be good secondhand buys. The super-mini class of cars hold their
value well, e.g. Polo, Golf.

True, although I am at total loss as to why this monstrum is a desirable
car?

.... except for a host of super-mini class cars from the likes of Ford, Fiat,
Peugeot & Citroen etc that don't.

Golf isn't in the "super-mini" class.

VW cars lose less than average common garden makes.
