Well, I got off my butt and looked it up.

Henrik Fisker was born in Denmark. Part of the Scandanavian neighborhood including Finland. No wonder he was aware of this car manufacturing plant in this tiny village in Finland that was just perfect for producing his cars.

And, of course, neither he nor his company had any inkling they’d go overseas to manufacture the car when they took that little taxpayer chump change of half-a-billion dollars. /s

This guy is an experienced car man, including several design stints with BMW in Germany and London.

He knows very well the state of automobile manufacturing in the U.S. today. To take the loan and then, for the company as well as DOE as well as the Obama administration, to act as tho it’s a complete surprise that they have to manufacture overseas is shameful and pathetic.

How much is this Fisker guy worth? He doesn’t want to risk his own money on this venture I guess.
