OK, so this is really completely unofficial, but just thought it would be fun to take a tally. If the Nina comes out and matches the price points Fisker's guided us to ($50-60K), how many of you guys would be in line to plunk down a deposit?

I would put one in, especially based on the leaked photos and the BMW range extender.

Other takers?

I am going to wait for the Sunset, or whatever they end up calling the two-door convertible.

It depends on how practical it is. I held on to my A6 Allroad for vacations and hauling stuff, for which my Karma's trunk is too small. If the Nina has more space in the trunk and rear seats that can go down it might be a good replacement.

Sounds like you need to wait for the SUV variant. The Nina is smaller than the Karma and with the inverters in the way, it would be unlikely that the back seats can fold forward.

I was just talking to my dealer rep today, and he said many of the 'nerdy' types at Redstone Arsenal and Marshall Space Flight Center here in Huntsville, AL are looking for the 50-55K range when they looked at the Karma. So, with those looks, I think Huntsville will sell a lot of Project Nina cars, whatever they end up being called. Any idea if the name is going to be revealed at the NY Auto Show? If not, I am still in favor of a contest to name it.

The name will be announced in New York. It is already on the prototype car, just covered up on the right:

I will reserve a Nina in a heartbeat! We have been driving our new Volt for a couple of weeks now and are absolutley in love with it. We find the vibration of our ICE cars really intrusive. We felt the Volt would satisfy our more practical needs and the Nina will be our new sports car replacing a Ford GT. We cannot wait!

I'd go for a Nina as an around town car but I doubt it would even come close to replacing the Ford GT on the performance end.

The British article in the other topic mentions Fisker not building the Sunset. That would be sad, because she's a beauty. But maybe it makes sense as the Sunset is on a different (shortened) Karma-platform and production of just a few thousands cars might prove too expensive.

As long as they build a convertible Atlantic, I would be happy to get one. Not really surprising that the sun has set on the Sunset. The $25K deposit and not even a soft deadline made it pretty clear that they were not really serious about building that one.

I wonder if they will ever sell the prototype. It would be very cool to own the only Fisker Sunset in the world.

I thought there were two Sunset prototypes... I wonder what happens to all those with $25K deposits!

I know there is one at Fisker's offices in Anaheim. Did not know that they made more than one.

They should do away with the Sunsets useless back seat and enlarge the trunk.

I like the Atlantic but just like Fabulist I'm waiting for the Sunset. I'd definitely move from the Karma to the Sunset if/when it comes out.

I believe there are at least two. If you go to the videos on you tube there is a red one that we have all seen and a black or dark blue one that is stunning!!!! Can I put in a bid for that one!!!!! I would wait for the Sunset but it sounds like many of you are very pessimistic about it ever being produced.

Fab, you're going to have to arm-wrestle me for that one! BTW, I believe the black one was the same car as the red one - just repainted. It ended up in the lobby at HQ.
