In 1974, the John Z. DeLorean Corporation was established, and in 1975 the DeLorean Motor Company came into being. That same year, DeLorean created the Composite Technology Corporation to develop new construction materials, some of which would be used in his dream car. What would be in that dream car? DeLorean said it should be “fun to drive, safe to operate, and long-lasting.” And of course it should have super-cool gullwing doors. And what could be longer-lasting than unpainted stainless steel for the body?
