Are prices for the 'new' Beetle likely to increase now they no longer make it?

I have a 2004 Volkswagen Beetle. I am looking to buy a new car but as you can't buy Beetles anymore, is it worth hanging onto it for a while to sell it for more in the future?

We definitely think 'new Beetle' is a future classic (classics.honestjohn.co.uk/news/comment/2017-09/fut.../) - it's the car that kicked off a whole retro niche. But you'll have to wait a while to see it's value appreciate. Keep it because you love it - not because it's an investment.
