Back to the Future (Again): All-Electric DeLorean
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?
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?)
