What could have been: DeLorean had reportedly been planning hydraulic hybrid

The name John DeLorean is synonymous with the automotive industry. From his days at General Motors, where he turned Pontiac into the automaker's de facto performance division with the creation of the GTO, and, therefore, the muscle car genre in general, to his days running his eponymous car company that gave

The last interview DeLorean never gave?
