The DeLorean ‘Back to the car of the future’ is back

The DeLorean Alpha5 is slated to hit the market in 2024 and could go 88 miles per hour, but it doesn’t quite look like the famous time-travel car from “Back to the Future” (which could be space-bending- time continuum at this speed), according to CNN.

DeLorean Motor Company’s DeLorean Alpha5, founded in 2021, was first hinted at in April:

“The long-awaited concept car is the culmination of a more than 40-year history with prestigious design firm Italdesign and DeLorean’s new interpretation of a modern icon,” the company wrote in a press release.

Italdesign was involved in the original film car.

DeLorean definitely embraces car history. The tagline is “The Future Was Never Promised”, which may be a reference to Marty McFly’s time-consuming adventures throughout the film trilogy.

But, as CNN reports, this car model really only shares the gullwing doors with the movie car, which is because the car’s designers essentially created an alternate history for the vehicle.

The DeLorean company failed before the launch of the three-film “Back to the Future” franchise in 1985.

“Ironically, the ‘Back to the Future’ car remained firmly rooted in the past. To imagine what the DeLorean would look like today, the company’s new designers had to fill a nearly 40-year-old void,” wrote CNN.

New designers envisioned versions of the car that would be released over time, such as the Alpha 2 or Alpha 4.

As such, the sleek and sleek DeLorean Alpha 5 is truly the DeLorean thrown back to the future.

The car is electric and will have a limited run of just 88 cars.
