Historic Information - DMCL Plant Closure
Although there are numerous popular conspiracy rumours regarding the closure of the DeLorean Motor Company, Ltd. plant in Ireland, I have seen little evidence that support such assertions. John was arrested (and subsequently acquitted) for conspiracy of money laundering and this arrest did coincide with the closure. However, evidence indicates that the corporation simply ran out of money.
The financial demise of the company was partly influenced by several factors including a weak market, unfavorable exchange rates, and unforseen cost overruns.
