    Default Not exactly...

    The current Delorean Motor Company basically put these "back in production" back in 2007, according to Wikipedia.

    Here's more info:
    http://www.delorean.com/index-5.html

    Company sells new build cars and used, also sells parts, upgrade stuff, and offers service.

    Not exactly cheap, but interesting. There was also some chatter that they might produce a new Delorean model, based on the former Pontiac Solstice:

    I am glad that they are becoming so popular again. I have wanted one ever since I saw back to the future. I even went so far as to photoshop/customize a delorean to what I would want mine to look like.

    I think alot of people today like them because they are still so unique. Stainless steel and gull-wing doors. Not too many of those on the road especially when every single car that rolls off the line anymore has heated seats, 22" wheels, GPS and costs your soul and a virgin sacrifice just to buy one. If I had the money though, I would buy a "New" DeLorean in a heartbeat!

    My brother in laws best friend had one back in the 80's and he said it was the biggest piece of shit on the road. Sure it looked cool driving it into the high school parking lot, but it constantly needed work done to it. It was bought brand new too. I never really liked the look of the car anyway.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    I think the logic that comes with buying a DeLorean is that you also have the money to swap out the engine for something that doesnt suck balls

    The car is real, but don’t expect to buy it with cold hard cash.



    A 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 is currently on sale by a startup company called Bitcoin Motor, a Craigslist-type marketplace where your credit cards and PayPal accounts are no good, either.

    The asking price is 300 Bitcoin -- about $30,000 to old money types -- and only the digital currency will be accepted as payment for the car.

    The Memphis-based DeLorean is the first offering by the company, which says it plans to expand its services globally if things go well with this one.

    Several peer-to-peer auto sales have been transacted in Bitcoin (BTC) before, and at least one brick and mortar dealership, Five Star Ford Carrolton, accepts it alongside traditional money. The spin Bitcoin Motor puts on the process it is that it lists the price only in BTC, and it doesn’t constantly vary with exchange rates, according to company co-founder Greg Zapf.

    With 17,809 miles on the odometer, and apparently in very good condition, the car is priced right about where the Hagerty Price Guide puts it.

    The only major modifications to the largely original spec car are an upgraded audio system, dash-mounted navigation and, of course, a Flux Capacitor, which Road & Track cheekily describes as a box of LED rope lights.

    Not exactly time travel material, then, but Bitcoin may be even more futuristic than authenticating payments with your thumb, the way “Back to the Future II” says we’ll be doing it in 2015.

    Perhaps you can use that method to buy that Mattel Hoverboard you’ve always wanted.
