Perhaps the biggest news here is that a DeLorean Motor Company still exists. Based in Humble Texas, they supply parts and occasionally build new cars for DeLorean enthusiasts.
Now, they've announced a new electric version of the car. The company says they will begin selling the car built-to-order in 2013 for around $90,000. They say it will be able to hit 125 miles per hour, and have a range of at least 70 miles per charge.
Still, I can't shake the feeling that if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, the battery's gonna take a serious s**t.
Michel Parbot filmed a lot of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews during the filming of The Empire Strikes Back. Some of it was used in a French documentary, while the rest ended up on Dutch TV. The French documentary was included in the Star Wars blu-ray release, while the Dutch footage has only been seen in a few very short low quality clips on the internet.
Now Star Wars Archives has uploaded an almost complete version of the Dutch TV special in a much more watchable quality.
