DeLorean Is Bringing Back The Legendary DMC-12 With Modern Upgrades

If the 1981-1982 DeLorean wasn’t already on your radar, it should be. Not only was the car shrouded in mystery following the bankruptcy of its manufacturer in the early 1980s after releasing only 9,000 models of its one-hit-wonder, the DMC-12, but its sudden inclusion as the staple platform for 1985’s Back To The Future helped to reignite interest in the car, etching its name into the annals of automotive history. Since then, it’s been nothing more than a distant memory — until now.

After almost four decades, the DeLorean DMC-12 is poised to make its contemporary comeback. Stephen Wynne, one of the platform’s long-time promoters, spent the vast majority of his days in 1995 restoring and remodeling the car, becoming intimately aware of its iconic status, and formulating a plan to revive the DMC-12 for modern buyers. After sifting through legal matters surrounding the brand’s name and likeness, the newly-resurrected DeLorean Motor Company seeks to reproduce the timeless vehicle from its Texas-based manufacturing plant. Below the hood, a powerful 350-horsepower engine drives the updated DMC, working in parallel with modern suspension, braking, and quality-of-life additions to make it more attractive to buyers.
