    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.

    edit

    Refurbished DeLoreans cost $45,000 to $55,000. The replicas will cost closer to $100,000 when they go on sale in early 2017.

    Was going to buy one. Even took it for a test drive. Right before I pulled back into the seller's driveway, I came to the realization I would be nothing but a cliché if I drove that into work. Part of me regrets not buying it, but it really is a joke on wheels.

    My neighbor has one. Doesn't run and can't seem to fix it. He seems to think his shit doesn't stink and leaves his garage open all the time so we can all see. I believe I told him to fuck off quite sometime ago when he talked shit about my 1973 L82 corvette. My vette runs. Like 8 bitches on a bitch boat.

    Deloreon isn't a good looking car and I associate it with white trash. Not fast, not anything.

    The only thing more ponderous than paying $50,000 to refurbish a bad car is paying $100,000 for a replica of a bad car.
