At the moment, enthusiasts and collectors who want a DeLorean DMC-12 in their garage, need to find one of the 8.000 examples that are currently out there. They can also apply all the lessons we learned from the legendary “Back to the Future” film and go back into time. However, the following news will make all of these enthusiasts more than happy! Next year, we will get a brand new DeLorean 2017! The brand new company which is based in Humble, Harris County, Texas is going to make this dream come true. Yeah guys, the brand new DeLorean DMC-12 is back in production.
The DeLorean Motor Company is in negotiations with two suppliers (one of them GM) about fitting a modern V6 engine behind the passenger compartment. Official specification details haven`t been released yet, but the new DeLorean 2017 is expected to deliver anywhere between 350HP and 400HP. DMC is having big plans on the interior as well. However, the recognizable Giugiaro-penned, boxy design will remain more or less the same. One of the major changes is an upgraded electrical system and a better chassis as well. Some of the indications are that 300 examples will be produced with a price tag of around $100,000!
