Here's What a Modern DeLorean DMC-12 Could Look Like

Here’s What a Modern DeLorean DMC-12 Could Look Like

Chip Foose redesigns the DeLorean DMC, but did he bring it back to the future?

The DeLorean DMC is one of the famous cars of the 1980s, but that’s mostly because it was featured in the Back to the Future movie franchise as Doc Brown’s time machine.

The DMC was supposed to be an affordable, innovative sports car, but it came out as a dated, underpowered and expensive vehicle and the company went under. DeLorean was revived in Texas in 1995 and word has it production of the DMC will restart by the end of 2021. But how would a modern DeLorean look? Famous car designer Chip Foose took matter in his own hands and penned a more modern version of the gullwinged coupe.

A Flea Market in Estonia Is The Last Place You’d Find a DMC DeLorean

And yet, there it is, ready to be driven by home

Cars aren’t typically sold in flea markets, especially one that’s as unique as a DeLorean DMC. And yet, a flea market in Estonia — yes, Estonia — has one. More importantly, it’s for sale, and you can take it home with you. It’s not exactly the kind of transaction you’d normally see from this flea market, but I think we already established that this isn’t your typical Estonian tag market, either.

This Review of the DeLorean Time Machine Will Take You Back to the Future

This Review of the DeLorean Time Machine Will Take You Back to the Future

This DeLorean DMC is an identical replica of the iconic movie car

When it comes to movie cars, the DeLorean DMC is arguably one of the most iconic. Developed and designed by former Packard and General Motors engineer John DeLorean, the DMC was put into production in 1981 in Northern Ireland. The car was received well initially, but many noted disappointing performance.

DeLorean went bankrupt in 1982 and production ended with just 9,000 units assembled. The DMC wasn’t particularly famous around that time, but the Back To The Future movie from 1985 brought it into the history books as the time machine that Doctor Emmett and Marty McFly used to travel back in time.

The DeLorean DMC-12 is Finally Making a Comeback With More Power, Better Tech

The DeLorean DMC-12 is Finally Making a Comeback With More Power, Better Tech

I wouldn’t hold out hope for a flux capacitor or a Mr. Fusion, though.

The whole new DeLorean Motor Company situation has been happening for a while. Production of “New” DMC-12s was supposed to start way back in 2017 but due to a delay in the Low Volume Manufacturers Act – an act that allows companies to build up to 325 examples of cars at least 25 years old – all of that has had to go on hold. Now, the act has finally be pushed through and the new DeLorean DMC-12 can finally go into production.

This Lego DeLorean Is The Ultimate Back To The Future Ode

This Lego DeLorean Is The Ultimate Back To The Future Ode

The DeLorean DMC-12 was not a car to write home about, but its Lego counterpart fixes that

Car guy or not, you probably know what a DeLorean DMC-12 is. And we’re willing to bet you’ve seen Back to the Future, where the DMC-12 takes up the time machine role, so you have a pretty good picture of how it looks as well. Now, the DeLorean was meant to be a prolific sports car. Except it never reached that height. Although its fiberglass body structure and stainless steel body panels were designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and had gullwing doors, the amount of power and performance it actually offered on the road was not that impressive. But do you know what’s impressive? A Lego version of the DeLorean built with extreme attention to detail. And no, this is not an official Lego set, which makes it even more enticing.

1981 DMC DeLorean

1981 DMC DeLorean

If you’re going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?

As some of the older readers out there are sure to remember, the ‘80s was chock-full of movies in which cars played a starring role. The 1958 Plymouth Fury from Christine comes to mind, as does the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance (a.k.a. Ecto-1) from Ghostbusters. And of course, any movie car list would be incomplete without at least mentioning the DeLorean from Back to the Future. That said, the story behind the DMC DeLorean extends far beyond a place of prominence in a beloved sci-fi comedy. This sports coupe is all kinds of weird, from the unpainted stainless-steel body panels, to the gull-wing doors, to the automaker’s untimely demise. Read on for all the eccentricities that make up the DMC DeLorean.
