A friend of mine bought a car that I've never heard of. Anyone else ever heard of a Fisker Karma? Im on a phone so I have limited posting capabilities. Basically its like a Volt. It gets almost 60 mpg and does 0-60 under 6 seconds. Just curious is others have ever seen one? Thoughts? Tired of the Trayvon story.
I’m amazed that a FReeper hasn’t heard of a Fisker.
Isn’t this Algore’s electric car company from Norway or somewhere like that? I think they are built with U.S. taxpayer dollars.
Lol!! I swear I haven’t. ;0)

It’s been posted here many times.
I thought is was the technical name for an oozing, pussy boil on one's backside?
The Fisker Karma is the vehicle that broke down while being
tested by Consumer Reports.
The Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid luxury sports sedan produced by Fisker Automotive and manufactured at Valmet Automotive in Finland.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rated the Karma’s combined city/highway fuel economy at 52 mpg-US (4.5 L/100 km; 62 mpg-imp) equivalent (MPG-e) in all-electric mode, and at 20 mpg
Yuppie mobile, and I bet it costs a bundle.
Volt = Dolt Auto
Lets face it, electric cars are simply a bad idea except on the golf course.
Considering the half billion it cost the taxpayers they should have called it the Frisker in honor of their search for our wallets.
Manufacturer Fisker Automotive
Assembly Uusikaupunki, Finland by Valmet Automotive
Class subcompact luxury sports sedan
Body style 4-door sedan
Layout front engine, rear wheel drive
Combustion engine 2.0 litres (120 cu in) Turbocharged Ecotec VVT DI LNF I4
Electric motor 2 120 kW (161 hp) motors, and 479 N·m torque
Great looking car, which one would expect from a world class designer (Henrik Fisker). It’s going to flop because the price/features/performance ratio isn’t good. The thing weighs over 5,000 pounds. There’s nothing eco about it.
Why would name a karma? But the German did it first.
I think they also make cat food.
Thanks. From your link:
“A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000.”
U.S. taxpayer subsidised.
Justin Bieber bought one and decided to have it completely chromed and thus blinding innocent bystanders with it. You can read and see it here. http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/10/justin-bieber-chromes-his-fisker-karma-henrik-just-happy-for-th/#continued
