There are two problems with your analogy (which I agree with in principal btw):
1) It's a digital product. It doesn't go through the same devaluation as a car on a lot for 5 years. Yes, there are better products (skins) than the older ones, but there isn't less value in the older skins, just more value in the new ones. That said...
2) The price points are fine ONLY IF newer skins get released at higher price points. If we assume the prices of skins don't devalue (that is, they don't deteriorate, and are always usable), then the only thing that keeps them from lowering their cost is the sheer volume of skins that are not produced.
Riot churns out X skins a year. It seems like (Please correct me if I'm wrong) that they aren't churning out as many skins as they used to. Theoretically, if they're going to release new skins with new voices and particle effects, they either need to
A) Make them more than 975 (weren't legendaries supposed to be better than the standard skins?) or
B) Lower older skins price. And price the new ones at 975.
EDITED for ambiguity.
