DeLorean isn't defunct. The rights are owned by a different DMC than before, but it isn't defunct. That's why the Diamond Select time machines aren't DeLoreans, as such. They have no logos and aren't called DeLoreans on the boxes. However, the name DeLorean is almost synonymous with BTTF, sort of like the Barbasol can. I think fans would've pitched a huge fit if the DMC logos were removed from the car and they never referred to it as a DeLorean. Plus they'd have to remove iconic lines such as "You built a time machine...out of a DeLorean?!"
"Geez, we've been back together for five minutes Doc, and you're already talking about the end of the universe."
