Back to the (Near) Future: DeLorean Electric Cars

Great Scott! Fans of Back to the Future rejoice, the DeLorean is making plans to bring the iconic car back to the near future:

There is still a DeLorean Motor Co. of Humble, Texas, which supplies parts and occasionally builds new cars for DeLorean lovers, and it has now announced a new version -- a DeLorean powered entirely by electricity.

"The car of the future has really become the car of the future," joked James Espey, a vice president at DeLorean, which has about 60 employees.

So far, said Espey, the company has retrofitted one car with an electric motor. If all goes well, he said, the company would start selling built-to-order electric DeLoreans around 2013. The sticker price (if a custom-built car can have a sticker): about $90,000.

Wow! Those cars were frankly terrible when they were introduced, but there are still people who want to buy a new one? Why would you do that?
