Notice that they took off most of the chrome accents. No diamonds on the bumpers, and the door handles are painted the same as the rest of the car. The grill is nice. I think I like my stock Fisker wheels better.

On the picture at the top of this thread, chrome parts are still at their regular places.
To which picture do you refer to?

No. The top of the door holes is red, not chrome. Also, in the video of the back, I didn't see the chrome diamonds -- though the light was low, so ... not 100% on that. But the door holes above are 100% red. My car has silver chrome accents above the door handle holes. And, that red is not nearly as nice as my Inferno!

The Jaguar XK8 convertible (circa 1997) is still among the most beautiful cars in the world. (Yesterday I saw a rich red XK8 convertible with a beige interior that looked like the Sunset from a distance.) Although more recent Jag designs are attractive, they don't beat the original classic.

Revero designers mostly retained the the world-class look of the original 2012. Although it's tempting for automobile manufacturers to make significant styling changes to distinguish model years, Karma Automotive resisted that temptation.

Bottom line: It's hard to improve on pure, automotive design excellence.

Thank you KA for being right on the marque!

I received the e-mail, but no photos or information. Where are others getting info and pictures. Found nothing on the Karma Auto site either.

You need to click on the link on the email and enter in the password given in the email.


Looks like the big panel gaps are still there.

Looks to me like they modified a 2012 Fisker karma with different fascias and new solar panel. The same large panel gaps on our cars are there on the new cars. That would be almost impossible to exactly replicate if brand new body panels were being used.

Also not too impressed by the quality of the paint, it looks like your typical "Tesla multi-coat red" not jaw dropping like the colors on the 2012 cars.

All in all great to see there is progress and hopefully some of these tech can be transferred to our cars. It is hard to improve on the perfect design of the 2012 Fisker Karma.

I entered the password. There was little or no real information there. Just the "visuals" outlining the Karma and form to get a call--offering opportunity to be on the list. Thanks, will check again.
