Representing Irvine, California...

Yeah Henrick has been running the streets here in his silver Karma for 2 years.. But its still a very rare car which doesn't turn heads.. it snaps necks!

I have to say that this is the coolest car period..
Wifi connectivity would be sweet.. imagine your car automatically receiving software updates at home when connected to your wifi network. and imagine logging into the car via a web browser to customize it, see all the information about the car, charge status, all software customization etc available through a web interface...

Hi Kyle,

I just answered your PM. On the subject of Wifi, Tesla is telling people that they will have the capability of remote updates via wifi. I don't know if that's for sure or how well it will work. I also don't know if we even have such capability in our Karmas.

The Karma doesn't have WiFi capability - just Bluetooth. For it to accomplish all the things you mentioned above, I'd imagine it would require a hardware modification and some serious engineering power from Fisker to modify the software to accomodate it. Tesla's Model S was designed from the groundup and the WiFi/3G connectivity was one of the defining components of its platform.

If the Fisker's software can be upgraded so that it can tether to a smartphone via BT, it can receive updates and send out information via that link without any hardware modifications to the car's electronics. That could be an interim solution until the full Wifi/3G upgrade.

You may want to ask Dennis about this as he has the 2012 McClaren which is supposed to link to your home network etc.... I wonder how well it works?

Kyle, Did you get window tint on your Karma? If so, which one?
