Is it possible? I heard you can keep certain cars that are only available in missions by putting them in your garage? Looking specifically at the "I fought the law" mission and the cheetah or the Entity xf. Anyone know how or if this works?
Keeping Super Rare cars from missions...

So one of the four car garages given to each character won't work?

I believe the reason so many people are finding it difficult to store certain vehicles in safehouse garages is because this particular game has something about mission-specific vehicles. Specifically, that they are coded to disappear from history after each mission ends. Remember, as these cars are "scripted" they are essentially part of different coding to regular cars. I started thinking this when I tried on several occasions to store the Police Crown Vic from "Good Husband" yet multiple times it disappeared after loading. Or in some cases, directly after saving. Then later on, I stored Dave's Oracle from one of the FIB missions, and low and behold it disappeared. Yet I have had a Sheriff Cruiser in the exact same garage since about the 12th mission! The game has been deleting the cars next to it. It's not an issue of garage space either- I stored other vehicles next to the Cruiser with absolutely no issues on numerous occasions. Yet when it comes to vehicles obtained from missions, they simply vanish.
On topic- I tried obtaining all of the Devin mission vehicles, but the only one I had any success with is the F620 (From Ballad of Gay Tony, and seems to be one of those "ultra-rare" spawns in this game). The others are special vehicles that are tied to mission success or failure. Whenever you try to enter any of the garages with proper interiors, there isn't a marker. I am assuming however, that it is possible to obtain the Z-Type and the JB by achieving mission failure by some other means- i.e. to kill Devin before you reach the marker to deliver each respective car to him. Then I'm guessing you'll respawn with the vehicle after you reject the mission replay. I only ever did this with the FIB Granger from Hotel Assassination and it does work, so maybe somebody can try and confirm that this also works for the Devin missions?
EDIT: I must add though, that because the other garages have proper interiors, they have no trouble storing "scripted vehicles". Again, I tried this on several occasions and have had success. Just not with safehouse garages. The main issue with cars such as the Cheetah, the Koenegsegg (forgot the in-game name) and the Z-Type are that you simply cannot enter the special garages.

Thank you for the information. I am going to give some of the things you suggested a try. Anyone else have any luck with these special vehicles?

It's pretty gosh darn simple. Start the mission and run off with the vehicle. When it asks if you want to replay, say no. Too bad you can't replay though.

I have done those with the garage, but like ant warrior said above, they continue to dissappear on me afterwards. I did that with the vacca, it gone. Also, on the mission with the cheetah and the entity xf or whatever where you race them, it would not let me put them in the garage, and I have never seen either of those spawn in the game world randomly. Maybe you just have to buy them period to keep them?

Speaking of cars disappearing, many hours ago I stole a supercar and it has been in my garage ever since. I even dropped $40000 on upgrades with no problem.
I'd heard that you are not allowed to keep stolen cars or get them updated.

I was able to keep the XF from "I Fought the Law" as Michael by stopping at the Pay-N-Spray and modding it. In fact, I just resprayed it. After the mission, it was at the Impound. I wanted to get a Cheetah for Franklin, but couldn't figure a way to do it. The other guys won't get out of the cars.
I really wanted a Monroe from the "Pack Man" mission, but all the Pay-n-Sprays were "closed." Same with the other cars from these missions.
