Too drab for me. Personally I'd prefer something flashier! Note to self, if you're speeding, be less conspicuous.

it's not so much the speed but the weaving in and out of traffic like the way they drive in the Fast and Furious movies... that's when people get all ticked off. People regularly drive at 80 around here during certain times of the day.

It is actually relatively slow for how it looks. I drove one a couple months ago and while I was impressed with the interior plushness even though it was cramped, the car itself is a porker. Slow off the line (0-60 in about 6.5 sec) and you feel the weight in the turns. Hell Beiber was getting close to its top speed of 125mph. All looks and no go. I hoping the smaller Nina (aka Atlantic) sheds some weight and they get the batteries flat on the bottom of the car like the Tesla instead of high along the center console.

As for Beiber's, blech!

No, and no.

Their government loan was put on hold which snowballed into delaying the Karma and stopped work on the plant that would be building the Atlantic. Since then they turned to private investors and have been raising money while using equity to continue developing the Atlantic. Whether they go out of business remains to be seen, but they never announced any plans for bankruptcy. There are a lot of heavy hitters behind Fisker and it won't fade out quietly. They raised $392m back in April and is looking to just raise another $87m by mid July according to the latest article in the WSJ.

Tesla had similar startup problems and it took 5+ years to sort out but they are now just starting to come out the other side better than ever. Even if I don't like the end product I think it is cool to have these new car companies spring up and I hope they all succede.

it's all fun and games until you break your toy and have to buy a new one - first thought is... I ran the batteries down... until you replace 'em with new ones and find out it's not the batteries!
