If you've watched the Back To The Future series as many times as I have, your obsession has probably led you to a google search where you learned the funky set of wheels made popular in the films stopped production nearly 25 years ago. Lucky for car loving geeks out there, we may not have to go travel through time to see new DeLorean cars.
The BBC has reported that the demand for the DeLorean is so high that it may go back into production. It's a funny story really, because the DeLorean DMC-12 car was first released in 1981, but less than 9,000 cars were made because it was largely considered a junker. Today the car's failure has been forgotten, and its stainless steel skin and wing doors have a serious cult following. The vice president of the Delorean Motor Company is quoted as saying:
"You can't have any conversation about the car without talking about the impact of the whole series of Back To The Future movies. There are guys who were in their teens when they first saw the movie, who are now in their late 30s or early 40s, who are at that point in life when they can get the car they wanted when they were a kid."
Sure, the DeLorean may not have the sleek exterior and function as Tom Cruise's Minority Report Car, but when modified, it does travel through time, right?
