Do you think I should keep my 2003 Audi A4 convertible in case it becomes a modern classic?

I own a 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet 2.4 V6 Multitronic, in immaculate aqua marine blue. I bought it brand new from the showroom brochure in June 2003. It has a full service history and only 65k on the clock. I love this car, however, it's worth nothing like the £30,000 I paid 15 years ago. I have the facility to store it. Do you think that it'll be a future classic in, say, 10 -15 years or shall I just sell and take the cash?

There's a decent chance this car will become a modern classic. But you'll have a long journey to do before you get to that point - it's going to need regular maintenance, even if you keep the miles down. And remember, storing a car for a decade won't do it any good - especially with all the complicated electronics in today's cars. And, let's be honest, would it really bring you much joy if it's just mothballed? You clearly love the car so if you want to keep it, do so and just enjoy it and try not to worry too much about return on investment.
