Die DeLorean Motor Company lässt mitteilen, sie wird im Jahr 2017 300 neue DeLoreans in die Autohäuser dieser Welt bringen. Billig werden die nicht, der Preis wird aktuell unter $100K taxiert. Die Originale, von denen 1982 um die 9000 verkauft wurden, kosten aktuell $45,000 – $55,000.
News reports out of Humble, Texas, say the automaker plans to make about 300 replicas of the 1982 DeLorean that has not been in production for 34 years. The company has remained in business by refurbishing old DeLoreans — about 9,000 were originally sold — for enthusiasts.
“It’s fantastic. It is a game-changer for us. We’ve been wanting this to happen,” DeLorean CEO Stephen Wynne told TV station KPRC2 in Houston, saying it is possible under a new low-volume manufacturing bill approved by the federal government. “That was a green light to go back into production.”
Wynne said he wants to build about four cars a month.
Refurbished DeLoreans cost $45,000 to $55,000. The replicas will cost closer to $100,000 when they go on sale in early 2017.
