Old news: 338 of the Fisker Karmas destroyed by Sandy

If you already know about this, please skip to something else. Today was the first time that I read about these Fisker Karmas being destroyed in Superstorm Sandy. The Horribly Ironic Reason Why 338 Fisker Karmas Were Destroyed

You can thank the good ol American government for that disaster. They were forced to use that battery company as a contingent for the funds they received.

It's a shame, that was a really cool looking car and was being built where our kappa's were.

Never knew that Elff. They are an amazing looking car. There is one around here in Temecula. I see it around every now and then. Looks like nothing else on the road.

Yup
They took over the factory in Delaware. Compared to the Tesla, they are very sexy and it would be nice to have another successful brand.

To the best of my recollection, Fisker never built a single car at the Wilmington plant, having gone bankrupt before fitting the plant out to build the model they were intending to build there.

Close enough!

Beautiful car, but trouble prone. The local dealer got stuck with 4 of them when Fisker went belly up. There are about 40 of them for sale on Auto Trader, several with less than 1k miles. Average price is about $55k.
