Back to the past: will the DeLorean arise from the ashes?


Sharing the big screen with the DeLorean in 1985 movie Back to the Future were none other than Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd as the time-travelling heroes; however, there is no doubt that the DeLorean, with its gull-winged doors, was the number one hero in the hit sci-fi comedy.

Now, 33 years after the last DeLorean was built, there are rumours that a new model will hit the streets. A Texas-based company now owns the rights to the DeLorean Motor Company and has been selling refurbished models of the popular two-seater since 1995; however, it is yet to produce any new cars.

Changes to the law

A new change in the law in the US states that as long as fewer than 325 cars are made each year, these vehicles don’t have to comply with modern safety standards. This will allow the company to begin building new DeLoreans.

According to the Guardian, there are no other cars in history that made such a lasting impact on the industry while only being available for two years.

Companies offering bad credit car finance in Portsmouth and other major UK cities can be found with a quick online search and can be contacted by anyone looking for a new or used car, although it is more likely to be a Ford Fiesta than a classic DeLorean.

Finding a car that suits your budget and your needs is important, with companies such a working with you to find a deal that you can afford.

Classic DeLorean

According to the Telegraph, the first new DeLorean will be available in 2017 for less than £70,000. As just 9,200 models made it off the production line between 1981 and 1983, being able to add to the DeLorean family is an exciting prospect.

Fans of the classic DeLorean can breathe a sigh of relief, with the CEO of the firm, Stephen Wynne, recently speaking out to reassure people that the appearance of the car will stay the same. “We don’t have any reason to change the way the DeLorean looks. Some areas will need to be freshened up, but the overall look of the car will remain the same,” he confirmed.
