According to NBC News, the reconstituted DeLorean Motors factory in Humble, Texas which has been refurbishing vehicles and producing parts for the roughly 6,500 vehicles in existence today, has been given the greenlight by the U.S. Government to produce around 300 new vehicles from original parts that have been in storage since the company folded. "It's fantastic! It is a game changer for us. We've been wanting this to happen" remarked Stephen Wynne, DeLorean's CEO.

The newly produced vehicles are expected to be a money spinner for the company, with estimates that they'll sell for upwards of $100,000 USD.
