From January 1981 to December 1982, just over 9,000 DeLorean DMC-12s rolled off the assembly line in Belfast. Shortly thereafter, DeLorean would be bankrupt and a sensational only-in-the-'80s story involving drugs, hubris, and big ideas would become headlines all over the world. And then Back to the Future happened and what would have been a cult automotive footnote became a worldwide superstar — and now, almost 40 years later, the DMC-12 is about to begin production again. Stephen Wynne started restoring DeLoreans in 1995 and eventually acquired the trademarks and stocks of leftover parts from the factory and dealers. Now, the reborn DeLorean Motor Company will begin production at its Houston, Texas-based facility. Instead of the anemic V6 found in the original, 350-horsepower engine and a slew of suspension and quality control upgrades will make the new DMC-12s what they were originally meant to be — a truly unique sportscar. DMC hopes to begin production in the next couple of years depending on pending regs from the NTSA, with one or two being made a week.
