This is heavy. The 1982 DeLorean model that was driven by Marty McFly in the Back to the Future franchise will be going back into production for the first time in thirty years. About 300 cars will be manufactured using leftover parts that the company still has from the 1980s. The company is hopeful that the first car will be finished in early 2017. They are planning to sell the new DeLoreans for under $100,000.
This is all possible due to a new law that will allow replica vehicles to go back in production that excludes small volume car manufacturers from meeting certain safety requirements that larger manufacturers face. The DeLorean Motor Company went bankrupt in 1982, but was brought back in 1987 by CEO Stephen Wynne. Until now, the company has been repairing and restoring original DeLoreans. “It’s huge for us. It means we’re back as a car company again,’ said Wynne.
