I just received an "official" order form from my dealer (Fisker - Palm Beach, a.k.a. Palm Beach Motor Cars). Has anyone else gotten one?

Nope, my dealer H.A. Ott of PA, said the ordering computer system was hopefully going to be up and running this month, January, yet I have heard nothing since early December. They also said Fisker told them delivery for 2nd QTR 2011. I keep telling them I am reserved for Signature Edition #51, but I don't think it has sunk in yet. Also, I see Fisker still has yet to get on the IRS IRC 30D list for cars approved for the $7500 tax credit. I am starting to get very agitated. Also, it seems like everyone else has an APP for their electric car, but no mention of this for the Karma. I am beginning to think that Fisker is really dropping the ball on this venture.

Welcome to this forum Kabalah.

Communication from Fisker itself is very scarce - the newsletters are far and few between and usually contain the same information (technical features) over and over again. I guess they are working really hard to get this car out there, and keeping the dealers and customers informed falls victim to that. I find it also disappointing. But I do believe we will see production start in March and first deliveries in April. We have to be just a little bit more patient: less than three months now. After waiting for over 3 years (I'm #217), I guess we can still handle that.

Although I do get annoyed for every extra week that I have to fill up my car with 70 liters of gasoline at € 1.60 ($2.16) per liter ($150 total, we pay more than twice as much as Americans do, 75% of the amount is taxes).

My dealer told me that the 100 signature cars, of which you are #57, will definitely be the first to be produced. So you are still first in line.
