DMCEV DeLorean

While the commemorative Nike MAG shoes inspired by Back to the Future Part II were well out of our price range, it was great to see the earnings go to supporting the The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Now yet another iconic piece from the Back to the Future trilogy is becoming a reality again. For years Texas-based DeLorean Motor Company has been servicing and selling DeLorean cars and merchandise, but they've also used old parts to assemble new DeLoreans with 80% original parts and 20% modern technology. But now a new all-electric DMCEV DeLorean is coming with an eye for production in 2013. See the car below!

The all-electric DMCEV DeLorean, sadly without a flux capacitor (from Jalopnik via SlashFilm):

The car was unveiled today at the International DeLorean Owners Event in Houston, Texas. For all car buffs out there, the specs on the car itself haven't been revealed, but we can pretty much guarantee that taking it up to 88mph will not send you traveling through time. However, that iPhone holster is pretty damn sweet. It'd be nice if there was some kind of Back to the Future tie-in for everyone who buys the car which is expected to sell for about six figures. That pretty much guarantees there will be somebody out there wearing a pair of Nike MAG shoes driving around this DeLorean sometime in 2013. And I'll be jealous. Cool, right?

    It's good they still have jobs I suppose. The DMC logo is pretty timeless, I like it. The car, well it looked great in the 80's. I'll give them it on the interior, it does look pretty well finished inside, way to milk a movie franchise forever though. Saying that I was just in 40 year olds house who had so much Star Wars collectibles that I could barely find room to sit. It never gets old.

      The car itself isn't part of the franchise, it was just used in the movie so an updated DeLorean isn't "milking the franchise". Like when they updated the Firebird nobody whined about Smoke and the Bandit, or the New Beetle and Transformers (the cartoon). The MAG shoes are a valid argument, as the shoes were made for the movie. The DeLorean car was failed 'concept' car/brand long before BTTF. I for one hope the new DeLorean is moderately successful, at least enough to be around for awhile like the Telsa.

        I moaned about the Firebird even though I was only 5. Really they should just get back to real cars like the Sinclair C5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EQetm_qWDg That kept it real.
