delorean alpha5 ev 11The DeLorean Motor Company may have never left our collective consciousness, but as an automaker, it's been gone a very long time -- since 1982. And now, the brand just might be on the way back with gullwing doors aloft and an all-electric powertrain beneath its shapely skin.

The new car seen here almost certainly won't be built in Northern Ireland like the Marty-McFly-spec original. Instead, this ambitious new project is the brainchild of a company based in Humble, Texas, best known for building and selling refurbished vintage DeLorean DMC-12 sports cars. Having acquired the remainder of the original company's parts inventory and later the brand's name, trademarks and logos, this Houston-adjacent company has been promising to build electrified DeLoreans since at least 2011, and this Alpha5 looks to be the result.

Unlike the original two-seat DeLorean DMC-12 sports car, this is a four-seat model with double-length gullwing doors. The slippery look is the handiwork of Italdesign, a famous Italian firm known for leading the 1970s wedge-design movement with cars like the BMW M1, Maserati Bora, Volkswagen Scirocco and, perhaps not surprisingly, the DMC-12. Interestingly enough, the original DeLorean Motor Company had plans to expand into larger, four-to-five-seat automobiles. Project 831/1 or the DMC200, as it was known, was developed for several years, but no model ultimately ever came to market.
