Default New Delorean Soon!

I was doing some reading online this morning and "Great Scott Marty!"a new Delorean!. Hate the price and what they are doing to it, but the Delorean is coming back to life! Seems as though it is only going to be electric... Not too happy about that but hey, ive always liked the look of Deloreans. Here's the article

There are a lot of other cars I would rather have than spend $90,000 on one of those

Hahaha fast no way, but economy is the name of the game today... But I would only buy it without the electric motor. It's a cool idea, just poor planning and it could go down in flames like last time

you can actually buy a new DeLorean that's not electric. This company here in Humble, TX bought the factory the parts and the right to the delorean name when they went under. they restore and will even build you a car out of NOS parts.

http://delorean.com/sales/

Also, John DeLorean was set up buy the fbi, never went to jail, and was aquitted of all charges lol.

Theres a company in the states who bought the rights and remaining parts of when John Delorean got busted in the 80s. he can make a delorean for you that will have 80% factory parts. Id order one of these with a a Porsche flat 6 before an electric version
