Now Future is back of us!
In “Back to the Future Part II,” Marty McFly travels to October 21, 2015, to save his children, yet to be born in “Back to the Future’s” 1985. Do you remember the movie “Back to the Future” series?” I do not remember the detail, but they were exciting movies, that is sure. Do you remember the car that Marty and Doc were driving? Yes DeLorean, DMC-12, that was a sensational design. Did you know that the body design was a product of Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design?
DeLorean features gull-wing doors and an innovative fiberglass chassis and underbody structure, along with a brushed stainless steel body. DeLorean Motor Company only produced that model in early 1980s but bankrupted in 1982 after the founder was arrested by drag trafficking even though later on he was proved to be “not guilty. It was too late.
In the movie, the Doctor Brown used garbage or thunder electricity for DeLorean power source. After 30 years, we see a lot of different type of power for cars. The most advanced is Toyota’s Mirai, which is using hydrogen for fuel cell engine. In Japanese, Mirai means future. It strikes me to find that Toyota has just started selling this vehicle from Oct 21, 2015. Toyota has already sold 1,500 Mirai in Japan which was introduced in the end of 2014 and has already received 1,900 orders in U.S.
It is amazing to see that DeLorean design still very fresh and fascinates us. From 1985 to 2015, a lot of changes happened in the car designing. But good design will last long. Similarly for only those innovative can survive in the future. Whether the design of Mirai will survive or not will be judged by people in the future
By the way, I found this very interesting Youtube CM which you may enjoy a lot.
