DeLorean: ‘Back To The Future’ Car Back In Production Over 30 Years Later

DeLorean

It’s been over 30 years since the last new DeLorean was built. Now it looks like the car that was made famous by the Back to the Future movies is heading back into production soon.

The company went bankrupt due to a combination of lack of demand and owner John DeLorean being arrested for conspiring to smuggle millions of dollars worth of cocaine (a charge he was later acquitted of) into the United States. Businessman Stephen Wynne eventually purchased the company and moved it to Humble, Texas in 1987, where they’ve been restoring the cars for those who already own them or refurbishing them for sale to those who want to purchase one. Now it appears the laws that were preventing them from manufacturing brand new DeLoreans are being changed.

Back to the Future DeLorean Image

Sure you can try and acquire a real DeLorean and turn it into a replica of the iconic time travel vehicle from the Back to the Future movies. That’s a dream of geeks everywhere. Unfortunately for most of us, that costs way too much coin, and the finished product won’t take you back to hang out with dinosaurs if you so wished it. It wouldn’t even hover off the ground a few feet.

In order to achieve the flying part, you can always do the remote controlled thing. But someone named Matthew Riese had an even better idea, a DeLorean hovercraft, and he showed off his idea in grand fashion.

Check out a couple videos of the craft in action below.

Flying DeLorean

Ever wanted to see a real DeLorean flying through the air before it zips off through space and time to another decade, century, or millennia, just as it did at the end of Back to the Future and in Back to the Future II?

Well, that’s probably difficult to pull off with a full-sized DeLorean considering we don’t yet have the flying car sci-fi movies have promised us, but it’s not stopping folks from making a scale model of the car and taking to the skies.

As you’ll see in the video below, someone did just that and, along with the help of that famous Back to the Future music score, it’s almost just like the real thing. Sorta.

DeLorean

As far as vehicles go, the DeLorean was something of a flop when it was first unveiled back in the ’80s. But thanks to Back to the Future, it became one of the most iconic cars ever made, and die–hard fans everywhere would give limbs to have one all to themselves.

Now it’s being reported that the DeLorean Motor Company has announced new plans for the fanboy dream car. Starting in 2013 (hopefully), the company will begin offering made–to–order electric–powered DeLoreans for all of you green geeks. You’d have to be a wealthy green geek, however, as each electrified time traveler will set you back close to $90,000.

Revisiting A Classic: 13 Moments From ‘Back To The Future’ That Still Get A Reaction

Back To the FutureIn honor of the 25th anniversary of the release of Back To The Future, which arrives for the first time on Blu-ray tomorrow, and the date when the events of the movie begin (October 25), Universal re-released the film on Saturday and today in select theaters across the country. I went to a packed Saturday morning showing, and oh does this film totally hold up over time.

I’ve seen Back To The Future countless times on DVD (and VHS!) and there are certain scenes and quotes that alway make me laugh and several moments that give me chills or make me want to cheer. That’s why going to see the movie in a theater filled with fellow fans is such a great experience — there’s an entire theater of people to laugh and clap along with.

For instance, at a re-release of The Nightmare Before Christmas the audience sang along to all the tunes, while at a midnight showing of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan everyone held their fist up and yelled “Khaaaannnn!!!” along with Kirk.

At the Back To The Future showing I attended, the audience was a lively bunch. They cheered when the title treatment came up, and at the first appearances of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, and of course, when the end credits rolled. But there were so many more moments that got a reaction from the crowd, even after all these years.

Here Are 13 Moments From ‘Back To The Future’ That Still Get A Reaction.

Michael J. Fox & Lea Thompson - Back To The Future ReunionYesterday, Spike TV released a promo video for the Spike TV Scream Awards of Michael J. Fox back in his Back To The Future Marty McFly get-up getting ready to ride the time-traveling DeLorean. In honor of the film’s 25th anniversary, Fox and the cast of BTTF will reunite during the awards ceremony. But that isn’t the only reunion in town.

EW recently got Fox back together with his BTTF co-star Lea Thompson for a photoshoot with the film’s iconic time-traveling vehicle.

Watch the video here below, which includes Fox and Thompson talking about filming with the DeLoreon, as well as Fox’s famous awkward physical comedy in the movie, especially the scenes of Fox back in time as Marty meeting his then-teenaged hormone-fueled mom (Thompson).

The photoshoot is part of EW’s first-ever Reunions issue, which brings together the casts of 12 movies and television shows, like Lord Of The Rings, Pretty in Pink, and Alias. The issue hits stands tomorrow, October 15, 2010.

Must See: Michael J. Fox Goes ‘Back To The Future’ In Marty McFly Reunion

It’s been twenty years since the third and final Back to the Future movie was released, but the popularity of this classic trilogy seems just as high right now as it’s ever been before…perhaps even higher!

Putting the length of time that has passed since the last film was released aside, Back to the Future has continued to show up every now and again over the years. We’ve seen the creation of things we saw in the movies like the hoverboard, word of the big Blu-ray trilogy being released later this month, the announcement of a new game featuring Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, and even the footage of Eric Stoltz playing Marty McFly just yesterday.

But if there’s one thing people would really just love to see, it would have to be Mr. Michael J. Fox, back in full McFly attire, and reuniting with his Delorean, right? Well, now we can. Continue on to the bottom of this post to see a video of just that!

Week of Geek; Back to the Future, 25th Anniversary

There are simply millions of hobbies you can spend your time on in the world like comics, movies, video games, oh yeah, and building your own Delorean Time Machine. That is right, I said it, you can build your own Delorean Time Machine. I remember a while back I was wondering what it would take to build your own Back To The Future Delorean and how much something like that would cost. Well one of the hardest parts is finding the actual vehicle itself. If you did happen to run across one and wanted to make yourself a replica, it is definitely possible.

Just in time for the 25th Anniversary of the first Back To The Future film, a great utility for those with this fun hobby is back online. BTTFParts.com has advice and videos on how to convert a normal Delorean into a Back To The Future time machine.

Enjoy the video of their conversion below.
