Twenty new DeLoreans a year? Maybe soon

According to this story in the Los Angeles Times, the semi-classic car featured in Back to the Future may be primed for a limited-run comeback.

DeLorean Motor Co. Vice President James Espey has 200 of the original V-6 engines in stock. While DeLorean Motor Co. still stays in business refurbishing and servicing early-1980s DeLoreans, Espey says they may start building new ones from the stock parts in the next few years.

Don't expect to see new DeLoreans all over the place. If it happens, Espey is quoted as saying new car production will be limited to about 20 per year.

Still, if you're one of the lucky buyers, don't expect to travel through time once you hit 88 m.p.h. Flux capacitors are sold separately, although there are instructions on how to build one here.
