You know, I was hoping we could all remain friends here. Dennis and I were having some gentle fun with each other's choice of vehicle. I hope everyone still understands that's all it is. I like that the Karma has an all-EV drivetrain, and I was impressed after getting a ride in Dennis's car. With 17 million cars being sold every year, it seems like there's plenty of room for all of these alternative/flex fueled vehicles. I can certainly see where a Karma is a better choice for some people than Model S, not to mention Roadster. That doesn't mean we can't recognize that each has its strengths and weaknesses and have the occasional fun with the later, does it?
I, for one, have no problem with Tesla, in fact I think that Tesla is actually helping Fisker by establishing the high-end, high-performance luxury EV market and Tesla's valuation of $3B+ for a company that has only delivered 2100 actual cars and is a year away from delivering the second model in any sort of quantity can only help Fisker. In addition, the more EV manufacturers there are and the more variety there is in the marketplace, the less these cars are perceived as nerdy geeky niche products, and more like regular cars people would buy for their daily drives.
So, Tesla, Nissan, Coda, Mitsubishi, BMW, they are all welcome and I love them all, although I have voted with my $$$ for the one I like best.
