“1.21 gigawatts of electricity to travel through time “

That’s 1.21 jigawatts.

I think I recall seeing that this company will build you a “new” DeLorean from new old stock parts. I think they’ll even do an update to the thing, refining it. But it’s pricey.

Yes, these guys bought all of DMC’s parts warehouse stock either in BK court or just before DMC went into BK. They also bought a large percentage of the original tool and die and CnC equipment.

For some of the harder to find parts they are the only source on the planet, which makes for pretty good profit margins in their niche.

Gigawatts is correct. The pronunciation with the “G” versus the “J” sound changes fashion every few decades.
