Behind-the-scenes information

Robin was a resident of Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1984.


Robin had a 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS for sale, which was advertised in the classifieds of the August 11, 1984 issue of the Hill Valley Telegraph.

However, Dr. Emmett Brown chose Robert's DeLorean DMC-12 instead to build his time machine the following year.

Whether Robin ever found a buyer for his Ferrari remains unrecorded.

Behind the scenes[]

  • The name Robin would appear to be an in-joke reference to Robin Masters, the unseen celebrated millionaire author (voiced mainly by Orson Welles), who owned a red Ferrari 308 GTS as used by private investigator Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) in the Hawaii-set crime drama show Magnum, P.I. (1980-88), which was originally distributed by Universal Television.
  • Although Robin's classified ad is accompanied by a picture of the Ferrari in the closing frame of "Science Project", this is almost completely obscured by that for John's used pinball machine.
