With the passing of John DeLorean, I think that the final chapter of that "new" DeLorean has been closed.
The DeLorean Motor Club of Canada has some news releases from the mid-1980's about John's plans to build another car, but nothing recent. The last update on that page is 1997.
For some time, deloreantime.com had an order form for a DMC2 watch and a series of videos from an interview with John DeLorean himself. According to these videos, the car's concept was to have an outstanding power-to-weight ratio due to it's very light weight composite structure, and to sell at a target price of about $30,000. The site also had more information (and pictures) of the watch.
The deloreantime.com site is now (8/07) history.
At one time there was also a listing for DeLoreanLLC.com registered to John DeLorean with the same Nanuet, NY address as deloreantime.com! DeLoreanLLC.com has also disappeared.
