1981: Production of the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car begins in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland. Featuring gull-wing doors and brushed stainless steel panels, the car became iconic after appearing as a time machine in the "Back to the Future" film trilogy. About 9,000 DMC-12s would be made before production halted in late 1982.
