Back to Back to the Future, Again
The Detroit Free Press (and everyone else) reports that the new DeLorean Motor Company (yes, they can legally use that name) in Humble, Texas will begin limited production of a brand new batch of Back to the Future-mobiles. The DeLorean redux will be re-made using about 80 percent original parts, squirreled away and placed in a time capsule for just such an eventuality (strange that). Thankfully, the new manufacturer's planning a few improvements (not shown here): structural upgrade (those bendy gullwing doors were just sad), electronic upgrades (replacing the car's notorious Lucas-aid) and more power (it was supposed to be a sports car). DeLorean redux hopes to sell the cars for around $57.5k– about the same as an '81 model adjusted for inflation or two ounces of cocaine (street price).
