The DeLorean is returning to production after a 34-year break. The new DeLorean DMC-12 models will be made in America. The production will take place in Humble, Texas.
Stephen Wynne is the chief of DeLorean Motor Company. According to Wynne, the return of the DMC-12 model is fantastic. Wynne further told the NBC News affiliate KPRC Houston it’s a game-changer for us. Apparently the heads at DeLorean have wanted it to happen for a long time.
The production will start due to a low volume manufacturing bill recently green-lighted by the feds. The bill allows DeLorean to build 300 more of the iconic cars.
The DeLorean car was turned into a time machine in the Back to the Future films. One of the main characters Dr. Emmett Brown played by Christopher Lloyd was responsible. Every single DeLorean car will worth at least $100,000, depending on the engine.
Wynne also stated they have plans to update the engines in the DeLorean. However the company has no plans to change to look of the futuristic ride. Even the gull-wing doors will be retained along with the brushed stainless steel skin.
The DeLoreans were first made between January 1981 and December 1982. Only 9,200 of the cars were made back then at the factory in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
