    Interesting, just yesterday I was thinking his business must be growing...In the last two months I've easily seen ten Karma's on the freeway in LA and Orange County, three of them yesterday afternoon.

    I guess one day the whole truth will come out, but I'm not sure anyone will care or remember when it does. It's a sad story of honor lost on so many levels. Most of all I feel very sorry for all the original investors who really believed in the man, and put their hard earned cash on the line to support of him, only to be sold out not once, but again and again.

    I hope for the 1500 Karma owners that Geely take over the dealership!

    It appeared to me he was hijacked by the liberal greenies. The greener the slope became, the more slippery the path, foretelling the company's ultimate demise. He might not have been any better off had he stuck to his original business plan, but he most certainly would have retained the good reputation he'd built over all these years. (IMHO)

    Voting with your wallets

    In the San Francisco Bay Area I'm seeing many more Tesla S all electric vehicles than Karma plug in hybrid cars on the roads and in the parking lots.

    It will be interesting to see where Mr Fisker will reappear given his talent as a designer and his reputation in business.
    My Best,

    Had a meeting in Bakersfield yesterday. To and from, I saw 4 transport trucks loaded with new Tesla Model S and 3 on the road. They really seem to be everywhere in the Bay Area right now. Despite the tabloid coverage at times, Elon seems to be building a real company.

    Too bad for Fisker, but like Tesla and Ford, I'm glad that they're showing the world that non-fossil powered vehicles don't have to look like anonymous turds.

    Yes, the Tesla is the next car on my wish list for sure, I can plug it into my solar roof and drive gas free all year. The only time I drive beyond the Tesla's range is when I go on Z8 trips!

    Just like Solyndra and other B.S. Green businesses, the taxpayers get fleeced once again and nobody is prosecuted.
