When this baby hits 88 mph - The DeLorean is going back into production

01.27.2016

Ramp up your BACK TO THE FUTURE fandom once again and prepare to engage your dreams of one day owning your own DeLorean. The likelihood of it happening for you are much better for you today than they were yesterday with news that DeLorean Motors will be going back into production to make the very car that was made famous by Robert Zemeckis' classic 1985 time-travel movie.

By way of a low-volume manufacturing bill approved by the federal government, the company will be building replicas of the 1982 model that was used to send Marty McFly back in time, choosing to stick with the design that everyone loves rather than modernizing it. With the supplies they have in stock, they're aiming to build about 300 cars in total, with new models going for about $100,000 and refurbished DeLoreans, made from cars shipped to them as well as a few dozen they already have on hand, will have an asking price that ranges between $45,000-$55,000.

Is this something you always wanted? Start counting up those pennies, because once the first new DeLorean rolls off the production line early next year, you're gonna see some serious shit.

This has been going on for awhile. Parts were leftover when DeLorean went under, someone bought them and was offering to assemble cars for sale.
Now it sounds like they'll get some tax money from the government to do what they were all ready doing. And we'll have more badly made cars with outdated features and engines on the road.
Though I'm sure quite a few will end up re-done to look like the movie version and put on exhibit in movie museums as the real car from the film.
Their numbers

Their numbers may equal the number of "Hitlers Death Cars" on display in carnys.
Geez, maybe I ain't so neutral on this after all. :)

I just hope that they decide to put a REAL engine in it this time. One of the "inside jokes" about the BTTF Delorean was that 88 mph was pretty much out of the question, as the original run of Deloreans was so horrendously underpowered (small displacement 6-cylinder engines taken from Volvo) that even low end highway speeds were barely achievable and 88 mph was totally out of reach.

Let them put the twin-turbo 3.5L V-6 EcoBoost engines from Ford in there...then you really will see some

EDIT: I forgot about the sound of the car as it was on-screen. I think the movie guys did not stick with the Volvo engine and dropped a 350 in it...or something...but that exhaust rumble does NOT sound like an anemic 6-cylinder....
