Trying to figure out what version of the Flux Generator I have but I am not very familiar with the game...and the images attached to each version look exactly the same.

I'm under the impression that this is a promo and there is therefore just one version.

That's what I would think, but the BGG entry lists a Flux Generator - German Edition from 2002 as well.

My guess is it probably refers to print-runs. Perhaps the first run was in 2002 and the second was in 2008. As the card does not carry any text, it shouldn't make any difference, i.e. all the Flux Generator cards out there should look the same.

The car is supposed to be a DeLorean, but Maura was unfamiliar with the car and ended up with a nondescript gold car. DeLoreans were stainless steel, but there is a poster for the movie where the color looks gold and Maura must have seen it. In the Power Grid: Theme Park, the color of the DeLorean is right and it has gull wing doors.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

I suspect the 2002 date is a bit a play on the fact that the Flux Capacitor was used for time travel aka the DeLorean comments above, since 2002 pre-dates Power Grid (not Funkenshlag, but this card was released for Power Grid not Funkenshlag).

I.e. that 2002 version http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameversion/129408/german-firs... is just a silly confusing joke? Seems like it should be removed in that case.

Or the date could be a typo perhaps? It certainly wouldn't have been released in that form in 2002.
