Actually, no they didn't. The gull-wing doors were operated by gas shocks just like most common hatch-style vehicles.
My cousin owned two Deloreans at one time, but sold one after using the best part of the two to restore one.
The guys that bought the Delorean warehouses also bought the dies and other equipment used to produce Delorean parts. They are indeed building brand new Deloreans, but somewhere less than 100 per year if I remember correctly. The actual assembly facility is around San Antonio (again if I remember correctly).
Deloreans show up on E-Bay and Craigslist fairly often. They're really neat cars to ride in, but they definitely have their issues. Mostly electrical problems relating to the engine. I've heard that they can be made more reliable by throwing a Wankle or Mazda rotary engine in them.
Not that that has any relevance to the thread topic at all, just thought I'd post what info I have.
