Last time I drove a Boxster, I thought the build quality was pretty iffy too. The car creaked and rattled, the interior panel fit was inconsistent. It had an air leak around the windshield. Admittedly it was a first gen car.


This.....

The only viable electric car is the Tesla. I give kudos to them for setting up the standard in green motoring. As for others, they are years behind.

From a distance thought it looked cool so went to check it out and instantly lost interest because the first thing i noticed is if you
look through the front grille you can see a foam bumper !!!! wtf? it was painted black but looked cheap and i'm sure will deform and degrade quickly as you wash the car or get stuck driving in the rain.

Starting to see the Fisker on the road now. I really love the style. In its own way the silence is stealth!

It's a total shit box..I see the Tesla Model S almost daily, Karma's once a month don't know if either company will make it. But the Karma is not a competitive car in the segment.

Also, resale is in the toilet.

Hate to hear that. It has some cool features but lets face it...Its an electric car. Not ever gonna make it in the exotic world. If it was trouble free it would be another fun toy to put in the stable.

Well, that escalated quickly. I came real close to buying one of these for my wifes birthday two weeks ago, something told me not to and I got her a new Maserati instead. Thank god I didn't buy one of these cars and have to deal with trying to get service and warranty work done by a bankrupt company.

I'm not surprised. Horrible build and crap customer service. I thought something was up also when the local dealer had a VW golf sitting in the window.

Their goose is cooked...Fisker resigned, the Chinese (last resort of desperate car companies) won't bite. Never was a competitive product.

On the other hand I see several Tesla's every day, I have three friends that own Teslas, they all like them. Personally I think it's early adopter tech buyer, they may make it....or Tesla can be rolled into Mercedes or Toyota who they have deals with.

I like the looks of the Karma over the Tesla but yeah I am even seeing the Teslas around here and this is not a big area for rare cars.
