11: Gullwing Doors
The most notable feature of eighties cars were the gullwing doors introduced on the Delorean. These were thought to be the “future” and for the most part, you couldn’t miss them. Unfortunately, the automotive design changed for quite some time but the gullwing doors are making a comeback these days, most notably on the Tesla Model X and a few other supercars such as the Ford GT.
While gullwing doors were a notable feature of the era that defined movies like “Back To The Future,” the resurgence is a cool feature for many modern drivers. Gullwing doors are perhaps one of the most unique features of ’80es car design that has lasted to this day.
