Where we’re going, we don’t need… well, OK, we still have roads.

Whether you’re a fan of Back to the Future, cars, or just the ’80s in general, we’ve got some exciting new for you — the DeLorean is coming back!

DeLorean Motor Company in Humble, Texas is about to start production on 300 replica 1982 DeLoreans after a low volume manufacturing bill was approved by the federal government.

CEO Stephen Wynne expressed his excitement about the news saying:

“It’s fantastic. It is a game-changer for us. We’ve been wanting this to happen. That was a green light to go back into production. That was prohibited. It was against the law to do it.”

Of course John DeLorean‘s original motor company filed for bankruptcy back in the early ’80s but Wynne — who had a small independent shop — eventually acquired all the rights to the car by the end of the ’90s.

With Stephen’s growing company, he’s very excited for what this first step could mean as he told KPRC2 that he eventually hopes to up the production from one a month to one a week!

If you’re worried about an updated look to the classic car, don’t worry! The CEO said:

“There’s no reason to change the appearance of the car.”

The first new DeLorean is expected out in 2017 as Wynne hopes to sell it for under $100,000 depending on the engine. If you can’t wait though, you can always buy a refurbished classic model from the company for about $45,000-$55,000!

Are you excited about the BTTF car making a return?
