I just found out great news! The car from a legendary movie Back To The Future is coming back – from the future! The official site of the Delorean motor company has confirmed that the new 2016 DeLorean DMC-12 will hit the market. The company thinks that after 34 years the timing is right. The new Delorean will be a replica of an old 1982 model. This is not just a rumor. The car is really coming. The company was founded by John DeLorean, a former executive at General Motors in 1975. He did not want to deal anymore with GM bureaucracy, so he founded his own company. That is how we got a stainless steel Gullwing coupe that became a legend. And now with this model the future is here.
