The DeLorean Motor Company is apparently considering taking over production of the Pontiac Solstice.

While the specifics are still kind of murky, the movers and shakers (according to Heeb Magazine) at Jalopnik.com are reporting DMC has released these official renderings and purchased a Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe for evaluation purposes.

According to DeLorean's Vice President, James Espey, "JZD (John Zachary DeLorean) always said that the best memories of his automotive career were at Pontiac, and that connection between JZD and Pontiac is probably one of the better known associations among car enthusiasts." The company even hinted that they are excited about the possibility of "putting several hundred people back to work" at the Wilmington, Delaware factory where the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky was built.

As you may recall, the DeLorean Motor Company, producer of the 1981-82 DeLorean DMC-12, currently repairs classic DeLoreans and makes a limited number of second generation models. The DMC-12 was famous for its stainless steel exterior, gullwing doors and film role in the Back to the Future trilogy.
