Yes, and DeLorean has already started production.
The legendary brushed aluminum boxy car with the iconic gull-wing doors is returning to production in Humble, Texas. Thanks to new laws regulating low-volume production cars not having to pass the ever stringent US safety standards, manufacturers can now produce small numbers of replica automobiles. Such is the case for the 90’s company that bought the remains of DMC back in the day.
With production already on the way, the 1982 DeLorean model replicas will see the light in early 2017, fetching a price under 100,000 US Dollars. This promises to be a refreshing automotive endeavor, it would seem as if nostalgia is always trending.
Now, this is not only a piece of nostalgia being brought back from the grave of automotive history, it’s possibly also the dawn of many small business ventures seeking to produce low-volume models, replicas, kit cars, track cars, or any other niche market automotive machinery that could not be produced a year ago.
We are thrilled to have such an icon returning to the open road. With minor improvements being done by the company to all new DMC-12, increasing power and fuel economy , we might get to see the rebirth of a legend and redemption for one of the most beloved cars throughout history.
To quote John DeLorean:
It’s inevitable that the company come back.
