Great Scott! DeLoreans are back in production
Whoa, Doc, this is heavy. The reborn DeLorean Motor Co. in Humble, Texas, will soon begin building replicas of the epic 1982 automobiles made famous in the Back to the Future movies, according to Click2Houston.com.
"It's huge for us. It means we're back as a car company again," DeLorean CEO Stephen Wynne said.
Wynne says his company has enough materials to build about 300 new cars. DeLorean will also refurbish old models. New cars will sell for slightly less than $100,000.
The original DMC-12 model first appeared in 1976. In 1981, fans could buy the car for $25,000. It came with a one-year, 12,000 mile warranty.
