Mid Week Match-Up: Future From The Back

This week's Mid Week Match-Up is inspired by today's date, Oct 21st, 2015.  Today is the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrive in the future to help save McFly's son from ending up in prison.  Today for the MWMU we are searching for the car to use in a 2015 remake of Back to the Future for time traveling.  The car needs to hit 88 mph in a reasonable amount of time, and look futuristic. 



My choice is the Tesla Model X, primarily because it has gullwing doors, but also because it comes from an upstart auto manufacturer chaired by a dude with serious personality.  Big thanks to Kaibeezy for the above artist's rendition.

What car would you suggest as the next BTTF time machine? Comments below.

    1. I was going to say BMW i8 as well. It's one of the few cars today that would actually be mistaken for an object from space if it traveled back in time 30 years.

    2. Another fantastic choice. Anything with the word Disco in its name is clearly a winner.

  4. OK, here is my submission. It has doors that are as crazy as the Delorean, and also has the Checker Cab motif from that Citroen DS-based taxi in BTTF part 2. I apologize for the image quality, and especially for the fact that it is an Aztek.

    1. Does that actually make it to 88mph?

    2. Good point. Probably not with me at the wheel. Gawd, I would not want to die that way.... in an Aztek. I would never live it down. Oh wait......
