The Delorean Is Going Back Into Production

It's a little late for a Back to the Future II tie-in product, but that's not stopping DeLorean Motors. After 35 years, the DeLorean is making a comeback, going back into production.

And no, this isn't going to be a brand-new car giving a modern look to the classic: they're going back into production of the 1982 DeLorean.

"It's fantastic. It's a game-changer for us. We've been wantin this to happen," CEO Stephen Wynne in Humble, TX told KPRC. Wynne and DeLorean Motors will manufacture the cars on American Soil for the first time, and plans to build about 300 cars, hoping to retail them at $100,000.

So, if you've been dreaming since 1985 to own a DeLorean of your own, you now have 300 new chances, or you will in about a year, when Wynne hopes to go into production.

    But what people forget was the DeLorean was cool looking but a terrible and very uncomfortable to drive car.

  1. If they really want to go to the future, they should make it electric. Oh wait, Elon Musk already did that.

  2. I considered so many ways to say this, most of which involved talking down to you.

    In the end, I'm just going with pointing out that DMC has been doing electric conversions of the DeLorean for quite some time.

    but the car was horrible... are they at least updating the motor, suspension, and you know-- everything else that sucked about it??? just use the same body/frame

  3. More overpriced junk for the MMTB (More Money Than Brains) club. Just anotheer rich man's toy. Such a waste of resources.
