John DeLorean’s DMC-12 was in production from only 1981 through 1983. The Back to the Future film trilogy made it famous. Now, more than 30 years after the last DMC-12 rolled off the assembly line, it’s back. The DeLorean Motor Company, which has been rebuilding and restoring the old cars from its small facility in Humble, Texas will resume production.
Internally, the car will be different. To Marty McFly, it would look like something from the future. The Dallas Morning News describes it:
John Espey, vice president of DeLorean Motor, said the replicas will be substantially upgraded from the cars in the ‘80s – including the engine
The company is in discussions with a couple of manufacturers to use a modern, emissions-certified V-6 with “300 to 400 horsepower,” Espey said.
The cars will also get better brakes, upgraded interiors and amenities such as Bluetooth, navigation systems and heated seats.
New DMC-12s will be available starting in 2017 and be priced at less than $100,000.
