Any Back to the Future fans out there? If so, ya'll will know that 2015 marks the year of the future from the movie series.
In celebration (or to pay homage to such a great movie trilogy), I pose a question:
If the trilogy were released as a new movie in 2015, what car would replace the Delorean?
Doc's most recognizable line about choosing the car goes like this:
Marty: Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me you built a time machine out of a Delorean?
Doc: The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style? Besides, the stainless steel construction made the flux dispersal... Look out!
The Delorean was a unique car for its day. It was made by a company not directly under any other large manufacturer of the day. It was generally recognizable, and relatively known for being differnent. In this vein, I nominate the Tesla Model S. The fact that the car is electrical doesn't hurt considering the Delorean was electrical too (Doc says "No, no, no, no, this sucker is electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts...")
Just add Mr. Fusion, large diffuser type things, wires, etc., and you've got a 2015 BTTF time traveler!
What do ya'll think?
