And the comparable list for the Model S:

1 The big bright screen is distracting
2 Where are the rear seat cupholders and seat heaters?
3 How come the body lines aren't better
4 The car requires 4-5 kwh per day to replenish the battery with no driving!
5 Car seems to have a lot of wind noise
6 How come there are no storage pockets anywhere in the interior?
7 The car handles more like a Lexus than a BMW
8 I'm supposed to get 300 miles on battery, I only get 210
9 Supercharger gives 115 miles of range in 45 minutes, not 150 in 30 minutes
10 Where is my range extender :D

If it were me, I would have taken the Sunset prototype, but I guess that option was not available to him under the circumstances.

Me two, that's the car I had hoped to buy, but my dealer led me on only to disappoint me with the news that it would not be built. Such is life.

Do anyone think it will ever be built? Maybe henriks next job might produce some even more incredible? Heck he has the experience and lesson learned. Great people learn from adversity - one can only hope?
:D

Great list! As a bonus I would like to add:

Henrik can't build a car on his own
He does not need to. He needs to be a designer and let less creative people do the bean counting. One option would be to set up an independent design studio and work with different car makers: Atelier Fisker?

... Fisker Coachbuilding??? This still exists, doesn't it?
That's a good question. Was Fisker Coachbuild dissolved when they formed Fisker Automotive? It certainly went into the background.

Last mention I heard of it was from this Car and Driver interview Henrik did back in 2011.

http://www.caranddriver.com/features/what-id-do-differently-henrik-fisker-interviewed-feature

C/D: So what would you do differently?

HF: When we started Fisker Coachbuild and did the one-off cars, frankly, I would have put a little less effort into the amazing quality we put into them. We made aluminum doors and steel fenders, and we were competing against people who made fiberglass bodies. We thought people would appreciate it, but not enough people appreciated it enough to pay all the money we wanted for it.
As far as I can tell, Fisker Coachbuild only ever sold 29 cars.

According to the California Secretary of State records, Fisker Coachbuild, LLC. originally filed in 2003, is currently listed as Active, which means it is up to date with its paperwork and is permitted to do business in California. Another entity, Fisker Consulting, LLC. was formed in 2010 and is also listed as Active. They have different listed agents, so they may be different companies entirely.
