DeLorean shows off its lost prototypes


    The DeLorean Motor Company story is one of the most bizarre. Beyond having passed into eternity for the appearance of its DMC-12 in the Back to the Future saga to become a cult car, the truth is that the brand has not gone much further and went bankrupt in 1982, although there were plans for new models.

    This is precisely what the resurrected company tries to show us in a news section of your website in which, trying to imagine a timeline in which DMC would not go bankrupt, he shows us three interesting prototypes that could have come to market during those decadesbefore the arrival of your new DeLorean Alpha5.

    An alternate timeline with a lot of future

    The journey begins, of course, with a DeLorean DMC-24 of which there were even sketches and which was presented as a sort of sedan variant of the DMC-12However, the first novelty comes with this coupe in the image just above. His name is DeLorean Alpha2, and it was imagined as the model that the American company would have launched in the 90s as a successor to the DMC-12, but with a totally different designcloser to that of a Corvette C5, although with its own personality both at the front, more vertical, and at the rear.

    Next on the list is a DeLorean Alpha 3 which presents itself as a sedan with an even more futuristic design that is a bit reminiscent of a shooting brake with shapes reminiscent, especially in its back to the recent Audi Grandsphere, yes, to respect the essence of the brand, its doors maintain the butterfly format. As DeLorean explains, this Alpha3 would have been launched in 2006 with 100% electric mechanics, something quite strange considering the futuristic shapes of the model and the fact that electric mobility was still something very little seen that year.

    This trio is completed by the DeLorean SUV proposal, a DeLorean Alpha4 which also seems somewhat ahead of its time since this model located in 2013 moves with a hydrogen fuel cell system and features a rugged yet futuristic design with minimalist headlights.

    There are no technical data on any of the models and it is not known whether the company dared to materialize them even in the form of 1: 1 scale models, but of course more than models of a alternate past can perfectly pass for current models perfect to accompany the new DeLorean Alpha5 in its new adventure.
