Great Scott, The DeLorean Is Going Back Into Production!




Earlier this month, we told you about the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act (H.R. 2675), and how Superformance is now able to produce turn-key replica and continuation cars thanks to this bill.

Turns out, they’re not the only company to benefit from this. DeLorean Motor Company CEO Stephen Wynne plans on bringing the iconic sports car-turned-time-machine from Back to the Future err.. back to the future!

The original DeLorean cars went into production in 1981, but only 9,000 were made before the company went bankrupt in early 1983. It was two years later that the DeLorean became a collectors item, after the sports car was transformed into a time machine in Back to the Future.


In the mid-90’s, mechanic Stephen Wynne purchased the DeLorean Motor Company name, along with all of the leftover parts from the Belfast factory, and set up shop in Texas. Up until now, the company had stayed in business by refurbishing old DeLoreans with their new old stock. But that’s all about to change.

With the passing of the low-volume manufacturing bill, DeLorean Motors has been given the green light to go back into production. Wynne estimates he has enough supplies in stock to build about 300 cars. He hopes to go from building one a month to one a week.


The new DeLoreans will sport a more powerful (and more environmentally efficient) engine than the original car, which only had 130HP. In addition, the car will have bigger wheels, bigger brakes, and shocks, along with upgraded interiors and amenities such as Bluetooth, navigation systems and heated seats.

However, for Back to the Future fans eagerly hoping to get their hands on the iconic car, it won’t come cheap. The new DeLoreans are expected to cost around $100,000 when they go on sale in early 2017.
