Drive Wire: DeLorean May Be Making a Comeback
Great scott! The DeLorean may be back for an encore. A Texas outfit called the DeLorean motor company— no relation to the original— intends to make 325 replicas each year. Thanks to something called the low volume motor vehicle manufacturers act of 2015, DMC is allowed to make a few hundred replicas a year as long as they meet emissions standards. Fortunately that means they will not be using the old abomination of an engine and will likely use a more efficient and more powerful V6. This new DMC plans to start production on their replicas next year, but they’re still working out pricing and so on. Whatever the final tweaks may be, we’re happy someone’s taking a chance on going back to… you know. The 80s.
