[DML] Where JZD got his orignal Idea for a rear engined delorean



Where JZD got his orignal Idea for a rear engined delorean


JZD being in charge of General Motors Chevy Division,in the years of 
this prototype one off,most likely already knew what would happen 
with a rear engined car with MATCHED size tires,and the engineering 
that would be involved to overcome THIS problem if he wanted to have 
a safe car to manufaucture,because of the testing on this car,he KNEW 
it would be a challenge to overcome,even using a all aluminum engine
(this one off orignally had a all aluminum engine)and a backbone 
style frame,So most likely when Lotus engineering proposed to use 
this style setup,he knew the Challenges involved to get it 
correct,and remembered/ back to these thoughts/insperations/this 
failed Corvette when it came to making the Delorean a rear engined 
car...look VERY familiar frame wise/engine setup? See the link below.
