The DeLorean is going back to the future and into production.

We first saw the iconic time machine three decades ago in the movie, "Back to the Future", but the last time a real DeLorean was built was about 35 years ago. Soon that will change at the DeLorean Motor Company in Humble, Texas.

"It's fantastic. It is a game-changer for us. We've been wanting this to happen," DeLorean CEO Stephen Wynne said. "That was a green light to go back into production. That was prohibited. It was against the law to do it."

Wynne brought the DeLorean Motor Company to the Houston area in 1987. For the first time, the DeLorean will be manufactured on American soil.

Wynne said the company will build replica 1982 DeLoreans under a low-volume manufacturing bill approved by the federal government. He estimates he has enough supplies in stock to build about 300 cars. He hopes to go from building one a month to one a week.
