I put my deposit down when the car was $88k, and at that price it seemed like a better option than buying the Tesla that I was looking at. As things dragged on my enthusiasm wavered *a lot*, but I stuck with it because I had committed myself and delivery always "appeared" to be imminent month after month.
I've been right on the edge of canceling my order (as is evident from my many posts on the subject), but luckily I'm getting mine at the old price, not this new ridiculously overpriced price that starts in 2 days. I would *never* buy this car or be able to recommend it at the new price. There are just too many other better cars out there that are much more fun to drive for that kind of money. Sorry, but it's true. I've driven this car, and frankly it's good, but not great. It's a great eco-car for sure, but if you ignore the eco aspect and focus just on the car itself and the driving experience it's really just a B or B+.
As for the Owner's Club, yes, I was very enthusiastic about all of this a year ago when I started it. But honestly, right now I have very little interest in pursuing it because I have no faith in Fisker Automotive, and this whole experience has been one aggravation and disappointment after another. I really think that anyone who believes that $120k for this car is a great deal needs to go drive some other cars in that price range, and then you'll know what I'm talking about.
I think the best comparison is my old 1993 Mitsubishi 3000. That was the best looking car you could get back then without buying a supercar:
It looked like a Ferrari, but only cost $24k. It may have looked like a Ferrari, but it was no Ferrari, and Mitsubishi knew that. They didn't jack the price up to ridiculous levels based on the car's looks. It was priced accordingly for the car's performance and quality at the time. The Karma is essentially the same thing - the best looking non-supercar that you can buy, but they're jacking it up to supercar prices based on that alone even tho nothing else about the car warrants it.
