    They really are a great pairing, and I love both for different reasons. With hindsight I wish Fisker had aligned with Tesla, as I'd like the 4 door so much more if it was all electric.

    Here's another pair of "Fiskers" from Cars & Coffee in Great Falls, VA with my Z8 and a local Fisker. We both arrived really early that day!

    Dare I say they have a lot in common?

    Not to be unkind, but in the first photo the Fisker looks to me like the "Bizarro" version of the Z8.

    Here they are in the layout I roughed up for the brochure back at the time.....but I just realized, that was #0, not #1.

    If my memory serves right this black car was the #1 car, it was then painted dark blue and went to one of our old board members in Long Island, so maybe repainted again by someone else when you got it?

    My wheels and interior are different. I have owned it since April of 2008. I also have a Car Fax that says nothing about repainting.

    Instead of ripping tesla off/screwing them over?

    Fisker got everything he deserved with his company, after the Tesla situation.

    You know something I don't, was he aligned with Tesla at one point?

    Yeah, Tesla/Musk hired him to design the Model S. He repeatedly delayed and gave them intentionally ugly designs, while at the same time stealing their tech/ideas to build the (aptly named, now) Karma.

    Eventually they gave up on him designing it, and designed the Model S in house.

    What a dumb move on his part, I wonder why he did that?

    I did a Google search on it, and found loads about the lawsuit, really seems like a dumb move. I found this one render that is supposedly his Tesla design. If it is his it's a pretty weak offering it must be said.

    Some of us learned of this new vehicle while in Monterey from a very reliable source. I look forward to the debut of this car, and to learn more about the technology to be complimenting what is sure to be an exciting exterior design.

    Fisker, Inc. released two photos over the last week on a new 400 mile range electric car. Here's a write up on what is currently known.

    I am curious about the battery technology to be used for powering this vehicle. Stay tuned...

    Autonomous capabilities...............Meh.

    Here's a better look of the face after a quick PSE session to adjust the lighting.
