Does anyone know if someone is making a car cover for the Karma? If not, any thoughts on what type of car cover would be most suitable for a Karma? I am thinking that an Aston Martin DB9 cover should work.

RE: Car Cover for the Karma

On further review, considering that this same company claims to have a cover for the Nina as well, I think this is an exercise in creative marketing.

I actually have a car cover for my Karma (got it same day I picked up my Karma). I'll post some pics of it later.

I agree that a transparency for the solar roof would be most useful. Until then I really don't see me getting a cover. I park it is a garage most of the time.

Karma cover

Long overdue, but thought I'd share some (admittedly bad) photos of my Karma with the car cover. I'll take some better photos this weekend to post.

RE: Karma cover

Interesting parking lot with gates. Is that a storage area?

Can you charge the car while it's covered? Do the fans get enough airflow if they need to run?

It's a private garage filled mostly with classics and exotics (in the cage one spot over, there is a Vantage, Z8 and R8).

You're not supposed to charge the car with the cover on due to ventilation issues.

Well, I'm hoping that this one doesn't scratch (the underside is a soft material while the outer skin is more rugged) - plus I got this from the dealer so I presume they'd only sell something that wouldn't damage the car.

RE: Karma cover

No matter what make cover you buy or what they are made of they will scratch the clear coat . I also do as a hobby car detailing not your usually wash and wax but actual removal of swirls caused by poor washing techniques and automated car washes . Swirls are those rings you see when the sun hits a spot on the paint and you see rings around the spot the sun hits it can take anywhere from a few hours to days to remove them All car covers trap dust and when you remove the cover you drag that dust over the paint while your removing the cover .

RE: Karma cover

I'd say cover your clean car so you can drive a sparkling Karma when you get back to L.A. and when you don't like the very minor in depth scratches it leaves, take it to Harleyguy to have them removed. Lets enjoy our cars and quit stressing. If it wasn't for us screwing up our clear coat, what would Harleyguy do in his spare time? Please, don't answer that question. Scratch the pain so we can keep Harley guy off his bike and safe.

RE: Karma cover

I live right on the Atlantic Ocean and do not have the luxury of a totally environmentally controlled garage. After sitting a few days all of my cars are always covered with a hyperfine salt/dust coating. I have several high value collectable cars and keep them all fresh washed and then covered with high quality car covers. This is the only solution I have found if I don't want my cars to look like total trash every time I want to drive one. All of that said....Do you guys know who make a high quality car cover for the Fisker? I really would like to buy one and use it. THX

RE: Car Cover for the Karma

If you don't mind me asking...what dealer did you get your car from? I would love to call them and ask where they got the covers from. I'm sure they won't mind.

Thanks

I got my cover from Fisker of Orange County.

You're not supposed to charge the car when it's covered.
