I'd do what I did in a similar situation: Get another teacher. Really, if your teacher is just shrugging things off that your considering without a valid musical reason and is moving you towards a genre your not interested in, I'd definitely say it

If you want to cash out the piano in 2 years, my advice would be not to buy any of them now. If you plan on having a piano at that time, work on buying that one now. Good luck however you choose to go.

I'm at a loss to understand how you ended up with a teacher who seems to know next to nothing about what you're interested in - classical music. After all, it isn't as if you had no choice in the matter, which might be the case if your parents chose
