The DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) is reportedly considering taking over production of the Pontiac Solstice.
The Pontiac brand has been ditched by General Motors as part of its restructuring process. DMC has released renderings showing its interpretation of how its production version of the Solstice would look.
DMC's vice president, James Espey, said: “JZD [John Zachary DeLorean] always said that the best memories of his automotive career were at Pontiac, and that connection between JZD and Pontiac is probably one of the better known associations among car enthusiasts.
Espey also said the firm was excited at the prospect of “putting several hundred people back to work” at the Wilmington, Delaware factory where the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky was built.
DMC was most famous for producing the gullwinged DeLorean DMC-12, which appeared in the Back to the Future trilogy of films.
DMC is still operational and repairs DMC-12s, as well as producing a limited number of second-generation models.
