DeLorean DMC-12 illustrates how a good idea goes bad with Xcar

Xcar Delorean DMC-12

When John Z. DeLorean set out to build a car, he had good intentions - it'd be small, efficient, sporty, affordable and safe, complete with a rust-free, stainless-steel body. The outcome, though, was a lamentable mess, a coupe whose prestige rests more with its gullwing doors and its star-making role in Back To The Future than in its actual driving character.
