We’re going “Back to the Future” in an almost literal sense.

The car that that movie made famous — the DeLorean DMC-12 — is going back into production.

A company in Texas that bought the name and all the old parts from Delorean after it went bust, and it’s gonna make about 300 new cars a year.

Not gonna be cheap, though, about $100,000 each is the buzz.

Correction: A previous version of this story misstated the rumored cost of the DeLorean. The text has been updated.
