Its a fake news story. They need clicks on their useless website to get paid. They are the new National Enquirer. The owner went belly up over the Hulk Hogan - Bubba the love sponge story. The dudes a snake. Including his teams.

Today, the story was on golem, too.
Sorry it is a german news page: https://www.golem.de/news/elektroaut...06-149319.html

Would be interesting to think about, what this means to the spare parts ...

All of the other news "stories" carried in other outlets are just re-reporting Jalopnik. There doesn't seem to be any new information. Jalopnik claims to have inside sources, and perhaps they do, but the last time Jalopnik had 'bombshell' news about KA (that all of their products were faked) the story didn't seem to go anywhere. Whether it was all fabrication, or KA is very adept at redirecting the narrative, I don't know. I'm curious to see if there's substance to this, or if Jalopnik is overplaying the perspective of an employee or two who may not be in the decision chain at KA.

I would hate to see KARMA go away. but the silver lining would be if Fisker Inc comes thru with the Ocean, could bring life to the name, and with KA out of the way, maybe he can reclaim support or upgrades for his first name sake the Fisker Karma EVER ;-)
