...I'm gonna hit someone. Not 24 hours, and I've had a few dozen FaceBook postings about Justin's new ride, along with the phrase "Biebermobile." And then at the gym this morning, before I had both feet in the door, two women say, "Hey, I saw your car on Ellen yesterday! Did you know they gave one to Justin Bieber?!"

Okay, I know-I know, pretty much all publicity is good publicity (unless it involves a DOE loan), but jeez, couldn't his manager have bought him a white one instead?

Sorry, had to vent...

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is probably what you can expect from now on:

Maybe we should get a license plate frame that says: Not Justin Beiber. :D:D:D

I would love to have people mistake me for Al Gore, Leo DiCaprio, or another famous SE owner. ;-)

That would be a much more subdued mob, for sure. :D

Arg... yesterday my car was parked on the street and a guy came up and said, "That's a really nice car, what is it?" I said, "It's a Fisker Karma". He replied: "Oh, that's the Bieber car." I wanted to kill myself...

My running count of resposnses when I tell people it's a Fisker Karma:

"Beiber Mobile" 1
"Obama Car" 1
"Ashton Kutcher/Two-and-a-half Men Car" 3

For some reason, the TV show has created much more awareness among random observers than the other two. No conclusions to draw, just an interesting observation.

Of course, beating all of these by an overwhelming lead is

"A What???"

I just tell them it's a new car from the first new American automobile manufacturer to produce a production car in 35 years.

-Had a lady the other day ask me if it was 'one of those Corvettes' rofl.
-Another one actually asked my opinion because she test-drove one and wanted an owner's opinion.
-Had some tuner young guys ask me about it, knowing exactly what it was.

Most interesting question I've received: "Fisker...is that made by BMW?"

Where do I begin....
Well the window motors are IIRC... :D

I hear GM most often, though people are surprised by the OC connection the most.

I'd love Fisker to send the owners a box of cards that we could hand out, with a great Karma picture on one side, and the Karma story (US engineered, green, etc.) on the other. I bet it would create a bunch of goodwill with the owners AND public, and cause at least a few residual Karma sales...

Guys,

No need to worry about being attacked by the Bieberettes when driving your black Karmas... since Bieber has completely ruined the Karma by turning it into this (spotted with his gf at Chick-Fil-A drive thru):
















My eyes hurt. All that chrome has to be violating some sort of traffic safety law (not to mention some sort of fashion/good design laws)....

Yet another example of how money doesn't buy taste...

OMG, and he even put some white and red christmas lights under the front and rear bumper.

I think the Bieber just lost two fans (my daughters)

don't hate.. I think it looks pretty good..

different strokes for different folks..

The only people that can get Karma's are Celebrities and High Net Worth individuals.

Its pretty cool that we drive cars that 99% of people cannot just go buy.
Welcome to the 1%

Also.. it looks like West Coast Customs did the car... http://www.westcoastcustoms.com/

it looks like they did the Karma for Justin on the Discovery, Velocity, Inside West Coast Customs.. not sure when the show is going to Air but justin is just driving the car.. Westcoast does what they want with it.

Listen to all of Ryan Friedlinghaus's Interviews.. " I did this... I did that... My Paintshop did this... I designed... " West Coast destroys a lot of cars.. They look great in pictures but up close they lack detail.

This looks disturbingly familiar; where have I seen this before?



OMG! Beiber is Cylon, complete with scanning red light! This explains (almost) everything. :D

Frankly, I am actually more offended by driving that car through Chik-Fil-A drive through than the garish chrome treatment.
