" Fisker Automotive has turned out to be an absolute disaster, only adding insult to injury is that the US Govt. invested over $500 million in the company in 2009. Personally, I find the Karma a very attractive car
it doesn't appear that there's going to much of a future for Fisker & the hybrid technology in today's world. Solution: Motor Swap. An article as posted today that highlighted that Fisker Karma's are now selling for about 50% of their original MSRP, and continuing
Since I actually like the car, I looked around on Google & found that a motor swap has already been done. VLP Destino has actually transplanted the Corvette ZR1s into the Karma and managed to shed 1,000 lbs from the curb weight (most likely from ditching the battery cells). My only complaint, VLP is charging $200k+ for this conversion
($50k Car + $20k ZR1 Crate Motor + $130k Conversion?
I was hoping that some of the BB sponsors could chime in & comment on how much a "1 Off" motor swap could run (@undercoverangie
