Texas-based DeLorean Motor Company
is looking to redefine the iconic DMC-12 conceived by John Z. DeLorean over 3 decades ago. While its pop-culture status as the "Back to the Future car
" will never change, the DMC-12's reputation for surprisingly poor performance can certainly be addressed. With some help from Epic EV
, the folks at DeLorean have swapped the car's original 130 hp V6 for an all-electric powertrain that produces 260 max hp and is reported to go from 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. That's certainly one
way to transport the stainless steel, gull-winged wonder from the past into the future.
