Movies are among the best ways to imagine what the future will look like, and that vision usually involves cars. Very cool cars, that fly, jump, shoot and generally blow you away.
If you've ever sat on your couch and wished you could try one of the rides favored by film characters, there's a good chance your wish could come true. These six cars from movies set in the future are all available in some form already, or are coming soon. So stop watching and start driving.
1. The DeLorean DMC-12, Back to the Future (1985)
Among the most famous movie cars, the modified DMC-12 was produced by the DeLorean Motor Company in 1981-1982. The original came with gull-wing doors, but it was Doc Brown who added the rockets and tangle of cables that let him and Marty McFly travel through time in the Back to the Future trilogy.
DeLorean has announced that it's bringing an electric DMC-12 to market in 2013, but time traveling capability isn't available just yet.
