Everyone remembers the car from the Back to the Future trilogy. Aside from being a time machine, the car was cool because the engine was in the back and the doors opened up. Well DeLoreans, like the one in the movie, are about to be back on the market.
According to the LA Times, DeLorean Motors is planning on re-releasing the DeLorean car in the next year or so. Since production of the car ended 25 years ago, the company has been repairing and refurbishing the more than 6,500 DeLoreans still on the road.
Who knew when the last car rolled off the production line in 1982 that the car would be made famous in the 1985 hit Back to the Future. To be honest with you before the movie, I’d never heard of the DeLorean. But hey, I was only 13.
Also, little did I know, that besides the actual cars used in the movie, there are still so many DeLoreans driving around. Yet, I can’t actually recall coming across one on the street. But apparently, if you head to the Universal Studios theme park in Hollywood next week you can catch sight of one due to an event that is suppose to attract DeLoreans in the three digits.
However, if you’d like to own one of the new DeLoreans due out, you’d better put your order in early. The DeLorean Motor Company is only expecting to produce 20 or so at a time. Although no price was mentioned in the article, I bet you can expect a pretty price tag. The cars ran in the $20,000 bracket in the ’80s.
Still you have to admit the car has class. With the gull-winged doors and all that chrome, the car looks futuristic, even today.
