Great Scott! Did Italdesign Just Tease a New DeLorean DMC-12?
The legendary design firm hinted that it’s working on a new version of the DMC-12 on its 40th anniversary.
The car industry is never shy about resurrecting a storied vehicle. And DeLorean obsessives have been frothing at the mouth for a new DMC-12 ever since it was discontinued in 1982. Now, a social media post from Italdesign suggests that they may finally get their wish.
On Thursday, the legendary design firm posted a picture of the iconic sports car in honor of its 40th anniversary on Twitter. That in and of itself would not be particular noteworthy. But the bottom half of the image features a shadowy silhouette of a mystery car that just might be the new DeLorean.
