Ray Lane claimed that Fisker were on target for a "full" production run in 2012, but then later he or someone official adjusted this slightly to say that "full production" meant 10 to 12 thousand.ebarneyr said:Just saw this in GreenTech:"But Fisker has struggled to deliver its first car, the high-end hybrid Karma sports car, with only about 40 cars delivered to date. Earth2Tech reported that A123 said Fisker is now looking to delay full-scale Karma production until mid-2012 -- despite the fact that it’s raised close to $700 million, most recently with a $58 million tranche of a $150 million “pre-IPO” round." Anybody know if this is so and what it means for those of us deposit holders?
Assuming everything with Tesla will go as smoothly as plannedAnOutsider said:Sounds like fisker will be rolling out with Tesla
Indeed, one could say it's already almost four years behind. Of course the Karma was originally supposed to be out in (late) 2009.Dutch said:By the way, they (Tesla) were already working on the Model S (Whitestar) in 2006 and is was then planned for release in 2008...
The comment wasn't meant to start a fanboy war, but I know I didn't see the S until spring 2009, and that's when I placed my order (actually, I think the design was restarted in fall 2008 because of the falling out with fisker). At that time I did hope to have it in late 2011 though, so there is a slip there, though I don't remember if that was a hard date or my expectation.Dutch said:
