(Newser) – The DeLorean, one of the most iconic sports cars of all time and the vehicle that Marty McFly and Doc Brown zipped through time with in Back to the Future, is slated for a new release—this time as an electric car, reports ABC News. Built-to-order electric DeLoreans, priced at $90,000 a piece, could be on the road by 2013.

"The car of the future has really become the car of the future," says the vice president of the DeLorean Motor Company, which is stationed in Texas and employs 60 people. The company currently builds eight to 10 made-to-order cars per year of the gasoline-powered variety. The new model will feature the equivalent of 260 horsepower, a max speed of 125 mph, and a range of at least 70 miles on a single battery charge. No flux capacitor, though.
