The DeLorean car, made infamous in the Back to the Future trilogy, is coming back in 2013 -- as an electric car. According to Inhabitat.com, DeLorean Motor Company "has weathered a stormy past, but is coming back with a vengeance by introducing an electric version of it gull-winged masterpiece."

"The company just rolled out a prototype DMC-12 Ev at the DMC Texas Open House – and it’s a retro-future dream machine," the website writes. "While it doesn’t run on fusion power (yet) it still has some sweet performance statistics like a top speed of 125 mph driven by a 260 horsepower electric motor."

Look for the first production model in 2013.

And if you can't wait that long, just buy the actual DeLorean car (one of three) from Back to the Future III. The DeLorean, which goes on auction to raise money for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, sports the famous Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor in the back.
