I just received an email from FA: "We are announcing exciting news about our company."

This news will appear in Bloomberg Business tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. (PST) in an article written by David Welch.

Anyone have a clue? :huh:

Figured you would. Feels like a M&A with a brand name.

I agreed to do a "customer video" for the Fisker folks a couple of weeks ago, and they told me not to wear my hat with the Fisker Logo on it ... and they told me that they would be referring to the car strictly as a "Karma" ... Please, be something better than Elux!!

(Keep your "Fisker" stuff -- it'll probably be collectible).

I used the same terminology to give a positive spin to the sale of our company to the employees assembled in the cafeteria.

That experience makes me think that if it were simply a manufacturing update, there would be no reason to make it a special media event.

It's going to be a much bigger deal.

But your guess is as good as mine.

This is **** exciting, and makes the Fisker Karma even more special since it is a Fisker and if the Fisker name is out, well they are theoretically collectibles even if new ones are produced under a different badge or name or owner. We will find out soon enough!

So, they're just renaming to "KARMA"!! That's acceptable!! And, we have original "Fisker" Karmas. That's kinda cool, too!

An odd thing in the article said that the new cars would still only have a 50 mile electric range, but the total range was 350. So, they aren't putting a bigger battery in, but instead a bigger gas tank?

I guess they got tired of writing checks to Henrik for using his name. :D

I think it's a good compromise name. It lets us be part of the Karma family, yet we own an original "Fisker" Karma. Keeps our cool factor even as they increase the numbers.

I was planing to sue them, the time my car will first start with the ugly ELUX logo on screen... Now I can live with it, when it will show Karma.

But will there'll be a
"Karma Atlantic" ???

Do we know the logo?
