Re: [DML] Can we ALL come to a correct definition of these DeLorean terms?

The red rocket aka the x19 was(to be) the prototype to help set the 
standards for the future DMC.And if you also  look at page 31 of 
SSI,THAT is what they call it,THE first Delorean Prototype! The red 
rocket.Hey I am only quoting printed fact here. 
So they used the x19 since it was the basic concept of what the 
future Delorean was to be,(engineering wise)to try possible future 
engines/drivetrains,they even setup/offset the drivetrain so that it 
sat behind the rear axles(ford V6),of the x19(x19's were mid engined)
also remember the DMC was supposed to be originally a (Wankel or Ford 
V6 engined) car,Again(it was supposed to be) the first basic  
engineering proto to help setup the engineering for the future DMC 
proto cars as we know of today.

The reason to use the x19 was,Because at the time they had,NO WAY of 
making a DMC proto as we know of today,(it was THE quickest and 
cheapest route) since,Giugiaro WAS STILL trying to design  your 
proto! And no DMC engineering(no Lotus contract yet) had yet begun 
since there was no concept, yet except for the x19(since Lotus was 
not yet even in the picture),hence concept 1 or proto1,in the same 
sense as your proto,SINCE it TO shares NOTHING(interchangeable),with 
the actual 
production car,except for the concept,JUST like the x19 ! Your proto 
did the same as the x19 was supposed to,and that was to set 
standards,in engineering,but in your case also the styling.(which was 
later re-engineered/updated),but in the case of the x19 they scrapped 
it when better things emerged,BUT could have been!
