Every once in a while, there is a rumor that peaks interest. We hear that the Pontiac Solstice may be spared an obsolete future by none other than DeLorean. Could the “Back to the Future” star save the future of the Solstice? Hmm. This just seems like an altogether odd move, and curiosity is peaked.
DeLorean is purportedly seriously interested in salvaging the doomed Solstice, this news coming just after the news that Saturn is to be eliminated in light of GM’s distribution deal with Penske falling through. Sifting through the company history of DMC, it does not seem as strange that the company would wish to assist Saturn, as DMC founder John Z. DeLorean sourced his automotive industry roots as the general manager for Pontiac.
Yes, it was DeLorean who was responsible for the legendary GTO, and for cementing a powerful brand reputation. Today, DeLorean is owned by Stephen Wynne, who is keeping John’s legacy in mind in his endeavors to save the Solstice.
The Saturn Solstice was one of the more fun American cars available, and DMC announced their bid to salvage it. The DeLorean DMC-12 was manufactured by in Northern Ireland and intended for the American market in 1981. Because it was the only model ever produced by the company, it has since been known as simply “The DeLorean”. Featuring futuristic gullwing doors, the DeLorean was ahead of its time-and was a star in the film “Back to the Future”, where it was a time machine. The futuristic doors remain in the mix today, featured on many exotic cars, including the 2010 Mercedes-Benz Gullwing. Exotic cars and luxury rental cars Miami style continue to evolve, but it is cars like the DeLorean that will always remain a piece of entertainment history.
