Lynx Motors announced powerful electric mods based on the DeLorean DMC-12 and Ford GT

A young company from Austin (USA, Texas) wants to make money by electrifying classic cars, its debut models will be the Lynx DMC- EV and Lynx GT1e based on the DeLorean DMC-12 and the first generation Ford GT, respectively.

The official revival of DeLorean has stalled: the company that owns the rights to the brand, DeLorean Motor Company from San Antonio (USA, Texas), which promised new models, has not published news since 2022. The company DNG Motors, the daughter of John Zachary DeLorean, has also not yet entered the market with its sports cars in the style of the classic DeLorean DMC-12. Now Lynx Motors has presented its own reimagining of the DeLorean DMC-12 and plans to release 100 electric mods based on this classic sports car of the early 1980s, made famous by Robert Zemeckis's science-fiction film trilogy “Back to the Future”.
