Some legends just refuse to come to an end, which is definitely the case for the DeLorean DMC-12 that is now slated to go back into production in early 2017. Simply put, the DeLorean was just ahead of its time and deserving of a second chance.

After John DeLorean’s brand went under, most of the original parts were boxed off and sold preventing the possibility of a resurrection.

The Renault V-6 engine used in the 1980s has been replaced with a modern engine that is able meet emissions standards in all 50 states. No word yet on the manufacturer or the performance statistics of the new powerplant. It is safe to assume that any modern engine used for this project will absolutely outperform the underpowered Renault originally used by John DeLorean.
