The DeLorean is Coming Back
Deloreans are still quite popular these days, especially considering they were a fairly short-lived and limited brand that went out of production way back in 1982. Of course the movie Back to the Future can claim most of the credit for the cult following the car received, but the gull-wing doors and space-age design is what got it chosen for the movie in the first place. And now the thousands of refurbished and rebuilt DeLoreans on the roads will have to share the street with new models, because the DeLorean is going back into production.
A new car company comprised of devout DeLorean fans who have been refurbishing them for years is planning to begin building brand new DeLoreans sometime next year. Called DeLorean Motor Company (yep, they got the rights to the name) the cars will be very exclusive with only 20 or so made per year. And pricing? Well back in 1982 they went for around $25,000...do you think we could be so lucky? Yeah, I think not.
