We have learned that thanks to Troy Beetz, the CMO (chief marketing officer) for the new Delorean. He also worked for Karma Automotive until February 2022. Stephen Wynne, who used to run the Texan DeLorean Motor Company, is now in charge of the Classic DeLorean division of the company. Beetz promised to share more information soon.
In other words, we will have the classic DeLorean vehicles and a new car. Italdesign shared the same video posted by DeLorean on Twitter, suggesting that it is involved with the project. It will be a celebration of its 54 years. To be fair, the DMC 12 was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro when he owned Italdesign. The legendary designer now has a new company with his son Fabrizio called GFG.
That said, expect the new DeLorean to be an entirely new vehicle. We asked Beetz for more info on which platform it will use and if Karma is involved with the project in any way. He denied Karma is involved with the project but he could not tell us anything else for the time being. For now, what we can share for sure is that DeLorean will have two divisions: one for the new vehicle and one for the classic ones.
