Marty McFly: Wait a minute Doc, uhh.. are you telling me that you built a time machine.. out of a DeLorean?

Dr. Emmett Brown: The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?

Would you want to drive a DeLorean if you had the chance?

See results

And with that quote, I and millions of kids like me were introduced to the DeLorean DMC-12, or what most people just call a DeLorean (since it's the only car the company ever manufactured). Where else do you get a stainless steel car, anyway?

I don't know about you, but for me, Back to the Future became a staple movie in my young life--and the DeLorean appeared as some fantastical futuristic dream car that I could never have--especially not with a flux capacitor. This car captured my imagination and millions of other's and continues to spark interest even today.

Now that we 80s kids have hit our mid-30s, it's opened up a new market for 80s nostalgia. What's so cool is that this time we can finally live the dream: DeLorean DMC-EV, all-electric--Thank you, God! (Now can you please make it travel further than 100 miles?)

Let's take a peek at what we can expect!

      Waqxi, I agree that we need fuel cell cars. Electric cars really will not catch on; they can't go very far, there aren't really any charging stations, and it takes too long to charge. Thanks for the comment. :)

      Hello Kate thanks for responding and you are welcome for my comments -I remember as a very young man when De Loreans was introduced and I recall a ad lib he made "I ll teach Detroit to make cars " Rest is all history --Electric cars can never replace the Internal combustion beast unless they come up with a instant re-charge system and , as I see it the only option is to development a safe and compact Fuel Cell Electric cars are indespensable for future for socio economic reasons

      I ll do some googling on that and if I come up with helpful info I ll share it with everyone

      Wish you peace and happiness and an electric car :)))))))))))

      Thanks Waxi, unfortunately they haven't released all the minute details yet--I've included all the links I know about, and that's not mentioned. Gauging by the fact that they didn't release that information, I'm thinking it must be multiple hours!
