DeLorean Motor Company, which hasn't made a car in more than 30 years, plans to build several hundred replicas of the stainless steel, gull-winged car featured in the movie trilogy Back To The Future.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. An icon of '80s movies is coming "Back To The Future." Five hundred DeLoreans will be hitting the streets soon. The reproduction of the 1981 winged car is made possible by a transportation act allowing a small number of car replicas to be built. They won't meet current safety standards but can actually be driven. The new DeLorean will also not feature a flux capacitor, meaning no time travel. It's MORNING EDITION.
