The Hagerty data for the M5 shows it basically flat lined for the past 18 months across all condition levels. My car sold on BaT in May 2018 for $34k ($35,700) and then it sold again a couple of weeks ago for $35,500 ($37,275), so I guess that lines up well with the Hagerty data...pretty much flat. It only makes sense that when the masses of articles coming out about the E39 M5 being the investment car of the future/have to have it/etc, at the very least such media attention usually marks an interim top in a market.
In the case of numerous Porsches such as the 1970s Turbo Carreras, that meteoric vertical assent in prices which saw prices quadruple from 2013-2015 and convinced the world it was the thing to own forever more, has resulted in a 30-40% decline since 2015 and still falling prices. Lots of hurt out there for the gotta-have-ems it appears.
