Default RE: Maerati GT & Karma, side-by-side

I love these pictures. I test drove a converible Maserati Gran turismo GT before I test drove the Karma. My choice was obviously the Karma, although my heart was torn at the time I am glad to look at them side by side and feel good that I went with the good karma!

I also have 3 kids and the 4 doors made much more sense! My other car is a Hummer H2 - so to lessen my carbon footprint the Karma was the wise choice. The Maserati is only about 10 mpg
My Karma is getting 103 MPG for the last 1000 miles.

Now there are 2 maserati's around my area but still NO Karmas! I love being different! Plus I still get invited to the Maserati Concourses My old BMW mechanic thought it was a maserati when I pulled in his shop to show the Karma - he is much more impressed with the Karma.

The Karma is the clear winner. Think about it... Even the Maserati is just a re-run of similar aspirated cars. What's the future? Fisker, no question.

As much as I enjoy validation of my decision, I wonder, would the result be the same if this poll was posted on the Maserati forum?

Run the experiment and find out! Just change your username so there's no hint if you are a Fisker or Maserati owner.

My prediction is that on a Maserati forum, you'll get a 3:1 ratio of Maserati:Fisker votes (i.e., strongly favoring the Maserati).

I've never cared for Maseratis. For me, the Fisker is the winner, hands down.

I agree, but a lot of people who are not familiar with Fisker ask if it is a Maserati as their first guess, probably because of the shared styling cues.

I can certainly understand that. In the past few months, I've met a few Maseratis on the road and thought, "Is that a Fisker?" But I only see that resemblance from the front. In comparison to the Fisker, I think the Maserati looks a little bloated.

No doubt the Fisker. I had owned the Maserati Quattroporte an incredibly attractive car. All the other high end car owners loved the Maserati. I had tons of people pay attention to it.

Nothing compares to the Karma. The sales person told me that he almost caused accidents driving it. It's really true. There are crowds around the car when I park. In fact it's almost annoying. Driving down the street people slow down and almost run over pedestrians or into other cars. Driving into the parking lot other cars almost run into other cars as they pull into spots stunned by the Fisker. People ask to take pictures. I've never owned or seen any product in my life garnish as much attention as the Fisker.

I am not a status conscious person and even bought the EcoChic because I'm a serious Buddhist, but the attention comes anyway.
