I believe DeLorean is looking at the October/November, 2013 timeframe.

In answer to your question, Cabe, I think DeLorean is still on track to come out with their electric car in 2013.

Good points, Cabe. I know I've said this before, but I think its time to call DeLorean and get an update.

I suppose you are right. It appears the De Lorean, as well as the Tesla vehicles, are for the better part assembled by hand. Even so, you have to set the price of that labor. Depends on where it is and the desire to make money. I hope prices on both drop in the future.

I could be wrong, Cabe, but I think these vehicles will not have the advantages of automated assembly, which pushes the cost up.

Drop that price to $50-60K and I would possibly consider it. That $100K is mostly a novelty tax...

It's been a year since this appeared. Sounds like a good time for an update on this story to see how this company is doing.

Re: Key Word is "applicable" in FMVSS standards

I should have stated that if the chassis /unibody already has a VIN attached. The VIN does, after all, define the mfg/model year, does it not?

 

I have seen such in regards to one particular make of car (limited edition, yes, but  I believe it still applies) where someone ended up with a complete chassis and some body parts for a Shelby Cobra. The car was never assembled by Shelby. The chassis had a VIN (which was used for verification that it was indeed a Shelby Cobra). The car was assembled using a modern power train, but it was considered a 1960's automobile, as least as far as the state of Nevada was concerned.

What does FMVSS standards say about that? Does it still apply? Does it apply to my FIL's '57 Chevy BelAir that was built up from a salvaged chassis? What standards apply? I have to admit to some confusion in regards to this. If the DeLorean parts are assembled into completed automobiles, what model year are they? Are they 2012 models even if the parts all date back to the 1980's? If it uses the modern EV power train while all the rest of the vehicle is original 1980's parts, which standards apply?
