To those that use their Karma as a daily driver, considering the current situation will you be using a different vehicle for daily commutes or driving the Karma until it dies?

I hope I can continue to drive mine as a daily driver even after Fisker goes bust, but it kinda depends on whether my dealer will continue to service it (not under warranty obviously). If I start having issues and have no way to fix them then I'll get rid of it.

My thoughts exactly.

Someone will buy FA. This is a head turning award winning automobile.
I still am amazed by the amount of attention my car gets out in public.
Tony: save us.

If Fisker Automotive closes its doors, I will continue to drive my Karma for as long as I can keep it in proper working order. I love the car!

I agree with the sentiment that it is a great car and I would buy anyones car at 31K just to up the offer. I use mine as a daily driver and I have never enjoyed driving as much as I have in my Karma. It is one of the few cars I can say is beautiful both inside and out.

Love it as a daily driver and will keep driving it

My first hope is for an investor group to provide the money to get karmas rolling off the assembly line... and to crank on the atlantic production - and a reboot on marketing. Perhaps more likely, I think someone will pick up the billion invested in fisker for a third the investment, and move on to the next phase of the roll-out plan with the Atlantic. (At least I hope so). I will keep driving mine. It is my favorite car I have owned... And having just traveled a little over 300 miles to see family for Easter, the most comfortable driver's seat I've had yet.

If neither of these outcomes... I am holding out hope for the evolution of 3d printing to make our parts if we need them in 10 years time... If no one buys fisker, can someone smuggle out the cad files for all the parts? :angel:

I plan on driving my Karma daily and often! Life is to short... "Write down ALL the things you are worried about today... Put the list away for one year. Pull it out one year later and observe how many things did not happen that you were worried about." ONE BILLION $$$ invested into a company that has produced an amazing machine... Just seems reasonable someone or some entity would come along with vision for the future. If not, I still love my car and will enjoy it. Regarding repairs, parts, etc., "Where there is a will, there is a way." :)

Haha more like I'd like to scoop up another Karma or two and capitalize on the overblown hysteria/fear that people have. It's like Musk guaranteeing a residual value using the lowest % of any current production car - dont need another Karma but at the right price, ill happily take another one (or two or three - would love to add Laguna, deep ocean and shadow to my collection)

Maybe Henrik will guarantee our warranties and availability of parts :)

If I had known people are letting these cars go for 50-60k I would have swooped up a few more of these. Ridiculous bargain and I am very confident that Karma owners will not be left high and dry (either Fisker will be saved or owners/dealers will step in and provide service/parts for these cars).

Trying to drag the thread to the general vicinity of the original topic, I have been reminded, ober the last week, of one of reasons I love driving my Karma every day.

Since last Tuesday, the good folks at Fisker Marin have had my car to catch up on required maintenance as well as a couple of items ranging from purely cosmetic (fixing the scratches on the rims) to repairs (rear fog light not working). As usual, they have very generously provided me with an almost brand new Jaguar XF as a loaner, for which I am very grateful, but it has also caused me to miss my Fisker a lot.

The Jag is a lot of fun to drive and sounds fantastic, but in the week that I have had the car, I have made two stops at the gas station to the tune of $50/visit and will probably have to make another stop before I return the car to replenish the gas level to the original delivery level. With the Fisker, that much gas would last me more than two months for the same commute pattern.

Can't wait to get my own car back, for all the other reasons plus the weird feeling of victory each time I drive past that gas station without having to stop.
