DeLorean revealed the first image of the upcoming EVolved. The company plans to reveal this new model at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on August 18, a few days before its originally planned reveal on the event's Concept Lawn. The image shows the left-rear corner of the electric car, including its wide rear fenders, louvered rear roof panel, and silver and black two-tone paint job, which appears to be a nod to the original DeLorean's stainless steel body panels and black trim pieces.
Not everyone is familiar with the DeLorean Motor Company name, but most people know the automaker's now legendary product: the DMC DeLorean. Although sold only for the 1981–1983 model years, the sports car's stainless steel body panels and gullwing doors made it—and continue to make it—a wholly unique and head-turning vehicle. No wonder director Robert Zemeckis chose the car to serve as the time machine in the Back to the Future movie franchise.
It was only a matter of time, then, until another entity brought the notorious vehicle back to life. DeLorean Motors Reimagined is doing just that. The company, whose largest shareholder is the DeLorean Motor Company that sells parts for and restores original DeLoreans, is set to reveal its new-age take on John Z. DeLorean's classic coupe at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August.
