-Price depends on

-Manual transmission command higher price.

-Upgraded car also command higher I.e Turbo, supercharger etc.

above market value is an estimate and can change according to and bank lending rules.

-As I for you still can get loan for car less 15 years old. So if you are a die hard fan buy the car reaches 15years.

-Or wait until it reaches 15 old and buy it cash. One day it will become a just like AE86. Now small RWD cars are rare.

are are more profitable for car manufactures to RWD that is why this layout is for more expensive model.
