On TopGear they said Porsche had to stop GT3 deliveries due to fires. And it's definitely not their first time at the Rodeo.

I am a recent owner of a Karma and absolutely love the car and would say yes, it is a very well-made car especially since design to production was in only 4-years or so. I have the Earth exterior color with the canyon tri-tone interior which I can say I have not seen another car that can compare. And I love the envious looks from Tesla owners as they admire the design of the Karma compared to the Tesla, which in my opinion looks more like a Kia.

With the plethora of issues it has I would say its debatable. RDM failures, motor spline failures, water leaks onto the CIU, battery problems and cracked mufflers not to mention half baked features leave plenty of room to question quality.

I would chime in with all those who love their car. I personally have had no issues or problems to complain about after more than 2 years of driving it 3-4 times a week (although I don't drive it in the rain as I live in Santa Barbara, CA and cannot comment on leak issues). Anyone looking or stepping inside a Tesla and comparing it to a Karma interior will see a significant difference. The Tesla has a rather cheap plastic feeling by comparison. A neighbor bought a Tesla and had to find someone to improve the base in the audio system (cost him over $1500), whereas I know the audio system in my Karma far exceeds the one in my wife's 2011 BMW.

Mine is well made. We'll see how I feel if I have a major component fail, but that hasn't happened in 2 years as a daily driver. The interior is the not only the most well constructed but the best designed of any car I have been in. (Although I have not been in a Veyron).

I put over 220 km on both road and track in the Veyron, and the Karma interior is very comparable.

I have driven over 20K miles. In the 2+ years if had one shock and a water leak in the motor. Both were replaced at the same time. Since, I have driven on 2000 mile trips, and drive 3 to 5 times a week (mostly on battery) to and from the golf course and errands. I prefer the Fisker EcoSport since I can drive a lot cheaper and with less environmental impact than my Audi SUV. There are some fit and finish improvements, but not bothersome. I had less problems with my Fisker, than my last Lincoln Navigator ( in the shop 22 times in 18 months. Very happy overall.

AlJohn, we should start the Atlanta Deep Ocean Fisker's club. I suspect it would be a pretty exclusive fraternity!

It would be fun to get our cars together sometime. Where in the ATL do you live?

I am in Lawrenceville. Would love to meet other owners ... I believe Classic was a very successful sales team, and moved a significant number of Fiskers due to their sales team and relationship levels. For the record, I did speak with someone at Fisker Atlanta (Classic Cadillac), and they are still there doing service on a best effort basis, and awaiting a restart of Fisker manufacture.
