Contrary to Doc Brown’s famous lines in Back to the Future II, the next version of the DeLorean still needs roads — but it doesn’t need gasoline.
The DMC Delorean, the iconic time-traveling car with gull-winged doors that was made popular due to the 80′s Back to the Future film Trilogy, is scheduled to go back into production 2013 with a new electric motor, reports Digital Trends.
Texas-based motor company is teaming up with startup Epic EV for the new line. The car’s V6 engine will be replaced with an electric motor — made by a battery systems company named Flux Power (yes, that’s really the company’s name) — that has 260 hp and a range of 70 to 100 miles. The car will reach 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 125 mph.
I have no idea what a car like this would retail for, but I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I want one.

Marty McFly’s crazy kicks in Back To The Future II have long been a geek’s dream. Ostensibly made by Nike in the film, they would tighten themselves around your feet automatically and, more important, they’ve been the paragon of ultimate geekiness for a certain subset of shoe fanatics.
Well, now it looks like you, too, can go back… to the future. Nike just sent out invitations to an event in LA tomorrow hinting at the actual existence of the Air Mags. The invitation included a pair of Doc’s aluminum shades and a bunch of BTTF merch, so clearly something is afoot.
The company patented the Mags’ power laces back in 2010 so it’s clear that the final product is ready to at least unveil to a legion of panting shoe-heads.
There are folks on NiceKicks already willing to camp out in line for these things, so you’d best act fast.
Unless you’re chicken.
While publishers are contemplating the future of journalism (and J-schools are missing in action), I thought now would be a good time to reflect on the good ol’ days…
