Fisker Karma production begins

Born in California, built in Finland. Pretty cool luxury plug-in hybrid electric sports car. Should give Tesla a good run...

I believe this is built on a 6-series platform. Fisker was also a BMW employee, I think.

Yeah, Fisker was the creative brains behind the BMW Z8 as well as the aston martin db9 and vantage.

I remember reading about this car and in addition to amazing performance and cool design, it has a speaker that is used ti simulate exhaust sound and has many tones to choose from, like ring tones in a way.

0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds and 67 mpg. Makes my 17 mpg look really bad...

2010 135i  [4.37]
One of the best looking sedans hands down. Now if Lamborghini builds the estoque that would dethrone this car as the best looking sedan. Fisker also uses the Merc SL platform on one of their models

Dashboard should say "Designed by Fisker in California Assembled in Finland". Looks very nice.
