Delorean will physically show the first model of its new stage next August, during the Pebble Beach elegance contest that is held in the United States annually. Before that, however, the American firm has been allowed to show through several renders what could have been their models from the past if the company had not gone bankrupt.

However, and given that the brand has already announced that it intends to market electric cars beyond the Delorean Alpha V, the images shown by the brand can be taken as a first preview of what is to come for its part in the coming years.
