Seeing that image of a newspaper clipping made me chuckle. It reminds me of my grandparents and their habit of sending local news to us that way - stuffed inside of hand-written letters.

While this is looming bankruptcy may be in motion; we have Tony Posawatz tweeting about Justin Verlander's contract. I wish this guy had never retired from GM.
Unfortunately that handholding was belated. It was very frustrating to be a customer in Jan-Apr 2012, with no information from Fisker to either the dealers or the customers about the problems we were experiencing. That did change after Lasorda came onboard and put quality assurance in place.Dennis I think they did put a lot of effort into handholding the first customers through the dealers. I read a lot of positive comments about the dealer service last spring. But they never engaged us customers over the internet as a community. Not sure what can be done with those early customers who have no patience with any issues whatsoever, demand instant perfection from a startup, and vent in hour long Youtube rants that the general public interprets as authoritative, deserved mockery ...
I met Ray Lane when he got his car, and in the interviews I've seen him give regarding Fisker he seemed reasonable. However, he doesn't have a great track record regarding EV related investments, e.g., Th!nk, VVC, and EEstore. To be fair, it's a space with very few winners.Anybody have thoughts on Ray Lane's effectiveness? The Hewlett Packard board is under heavy criticism for HP's missteps and he's on that board too.
