The 16 Worst Cars in History

1981 De Lorean DMC-12

1981 De Lorean DMC-12

A stainless-steel body, gull-wing doors and rear-engine make the De Lorean easy to recognize. But high prices, quality-control issues and a severe lack of power made this sports car a flop with drivers. If not for a cameo as a time machine on wheels in the movie “Back to the Future,” the De Lorean would be long forgotten.

    forgetting the engine and everything, the stainless steel body was the only problem. i mean if it gets a couple scratches and a little dirt, it’s really noticeable. but i don’t mean to dis on the car. i love it

    Hey “bboy”, they still make them in Houston, TX. You can buy a used one for $20,000-$30,000. But a brand new one would cost around $40,000. Y’all start savin’ up your pennies!
