The pr article compares it againts the panamara - not very flattering to Fisker ... Both article complain about stuff that we and fisker know about .. You can make up your own mind, but it does not help the brand IMHO. The car is still the best looking and nice to drive... They can't that away from us early adopters... ;-)

Yeah, I would classify the Consumer Reports review as not helpful to Fisker. It's not the deciding factor for most buyers, but it just gives the media more fuel for the Fisker flame.

Everyone I meet with the Karma says it one of the coolest car they have seen and its the way electric cars should be in the future.

The command center, I agree it must get better fast. The GUI is not good, hope they can fix it soon.

We had a nice road trip this weekend with an Audi R8, Ferrari and Lamborgini and my Fisker.
Upto 80 km/hr I could easily keep up with the acceleration of the other cars. With a speed limit of 130 kms/hr I had no problem with the top speed of course. The Ferrari used 4x as much gas as I did with the same driving style......
The fisker was the only 4-seater and drew most attention.
I have driven almost 10.000 kms and had very few issues. A few times the CEL came on and Blue Tooth works poorly. Other wise it's a great car.

Hallo Flying Dutchman,

maybe i should join you on a ride once in a while. I live just 70 Kilometers from the dutch border. I own a Fisker Signature Edition No 16 and a BMW Z 8 ( black ). So i would have to choose, which car to take. Two weeks ago i was on the beach in Scheveningen. I chose to go with my Audi A 5 convertible, because i could not find a recharging station in or near Scheveningen for the Fisker and the parking garages are so small in Scheveningen, so i wanted to avoid scratching my tires.

So long from Germany

Wouldn't the Z8 be considered a proto-Fisker since Henrik designed it too?
