Description: A large number of the original cars are still on the road after over 25 years; most estimates put it at 6,500 cars surviving out of just over 9,000 built. There is an active enthusiast community around the cars, with strong owners' clubs. A number of businesses were set up after the demise of the DeLorean Motor Company to provide parts and service, and most of those are still in existence. In particular, DeLorean Motor Company (based in Humble, Texas), operates under entirely new ownership. It acquired the original company's assets, now owns trademark and copyright registrations for the brand and the DMC-12 automobile, and inventories the largest remaining original parts stock from the factory, US stock and original suppliers.
