The DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) was an American automobile manufacturer formed by automobile industry executive John DeLorean in 1975. It is remembered for the one model it produced—the stainless steel DeLorean sports car featuring gull-wing doors—and for being featured in the Back to the Future film trilogy (1985, 1989, and 1990) as the model of car made into a time machine by eccentric scientist Doc Brown, although the company had closed down before the first film was made.

The DeLorean Comes Back From The Past With The All-Electric Alpha5 | Forbes
If the future is electric, then the Back To The Future car has arrived—at least as an electric concept. The famous DeLorean DMC-12 gull-wing, stainless steel car is back from the reincarnated DeLorean Motor Company. On Tuesday it revealed its Alpha5 concept car as an all-electric DeLorean with strong Porsche vibes. DMC, which is no longer the failed auto company started by John DeLorean in 1975, but a rebooted classic car parts brand, first teased a product revival in April. This week, the first images and basic details of the pre-production car were released about the Alpha5, including its name. The same firm which designed the original DMC-12 in the 1970s, Italdesign, is behind the new electrified version’s styling. Now owned by Volkswagen AG, the Alpha5 bears an unmistakable resemblance to Italdesign’s 2019 DaVinci concept car and the hallmarks of other redesign Italdesign ideas, as well as some trademark DeLorean ones. .
