Default Change Steering wheel?

Call me crazy but I believe I am not the only guy who think the steering wheel design on Karma is ugly!
So wild guess is can we swap steering wheel? I don't mean to put a Momo. I mean still retaining airbag and other fuctions, maybe from a Porsche Panamera? As a small car company I believe Fisker out source some sort of universal solution.
Any input? Cheers!!

C6 Corvette I would look into . Problem you will have to look into is the air bag functionality also by changing the air bag and getting into an accident you might have a problem with your insurance company just in case of a malfunction

Steering wheel shares bolt pattern of GM but is completely different with regards to airbag. When they designed the wheel they shared the mounting pattern but changed the horn pad and that is custom. So unless you have wicked skills in fabrication or can program/replace the SRS modules to accept an another oem/aftermarket solution it will be difficult.


Fisker actually had a clay model of this steering wheel and the only thing it shares is the mounting pattern and GM steering wheel controls.
