Legendary DeLorean DMC-12 Has Chance to Reincarnate

DeLorean, although the company has fallen out of automotive life, has not disappeared forever.

The American regulations, or rather their absence, prevented the brand from reviving.

DeLorean is probably the most famous of the extinct automobile dinosaurs, thanks to the fame of the “Back to the Future” movies and… its own bankruptcy history. Now, DeLorean Motor Company has a chance for a second life.

In 2015, DeLorean Motor Company announced plans to re-launch the DMC-12. The news caused quite a big splash, but this quickly subsided, since DMC has not made itself felt since that time. It turned out that the company did not build cars, not because they did not want to, but because they could not.

In the same year, 2015, in the United States, a new law, which allowed small companies to produce up to 325 cars per year without the need for their certification according to common standards for mass manufacturers, was passed. Although the law existed, there were still no standards for small-scale manufacturers to operate under. Only recently, the NHTSA has published the instructions for the law.

The revived DeLorean DMC-12is planned to have a new engine and advanced comfort systems, but the car should retain its iconic design. Five years ago, DeLorean announced an estimated cost for the new DMC-12 at $100,000.
