DeLorean

As far as vehicles go, the DeLorean was something of a flop when it was first unveiled back in the ’80s. But thanks to Back to the Future, it became one of the most iconic cars ever made, and die–hard fans everywhere would give limbs to have one all to themselves.

Now it’s being reported that the DeLorean Motor Company has announced new plans for the fanboy dream car. Starting in 2013 (hopefully), the company will begin offering made–to–order electric–powered DeLoreans for all of you green geeks. You’d have to be a wealthy green geek, however, as each electrified time traveler will set you back close to $90,000.

The car will have around 260 horsepower and reach around 125 miles per hour, with each battery charge getting you about 70 miles down the road. And speaking of batteries, in a twist of wonderful irony (or witty business decisions), DeLorean has theirs made by a company called Flux Power.

Sadly, many of us will never be able to afford this price tag—a real shame for anyone (me) who has had dreams of throwing on a puffy vest–jacket and hitting the nearest mall parking lot. But that’s not the only option out there: DeLorean Motor Company still makes 8–to–10 gas engine cars per year for around $57,000. Or you can always hit the web in search of a used one for even cheaper!

It’s not clear if the original design will be used for the electric version or if it will be modernized.
