It’s a damn shame what’s happening to Fisker. The environmentally conscious luxury auto upstart had nothing but the best intentions and a damn fine looking product if I do say so myself. Well, aside from that whole catching on fire thing. The Karma pictured here, a plug in hybrid sport sedan, is utterly easy on the eyes thanks to the design talents of one Henrik Fisker. But now he is out and so is the federal funding, two extremely daunting challenges to overcome alongside investor cashflow issues, vehicle quality problems and Hurricane Sandy destroying a crop of 300 vehicles.
We wish them the best of luck in recovering but it might not be in the cards.
