If they get really cheap it would be great to buy one and throw a crate motor in it. Easy to do. Bob lutz did one with a zr1 motor

i spoke to a guy in houston that wanted to sell his in the mid 60s. i would consider buying one if it's price for the body shell and interior only. there's a high chance that the battery may go bad and if that happens with zero warranty or dealer support, your car is essentially a brick.

Considering how light they had to make the car to accomodate the batteries it would be a beast with the ZR1 powertrain. I wonder if this means it's also curtains for the Destino.

Did you know the design for the look of the car was originally what Tesla was going use? The designer (May have been Fisker himself) pulled a Benedict Arnold.

Even more of a shame. I guess "karma" is a bitch!

Now buy your less attractive Karma (imo) for twice the price and a corvette engine.

They'll convert cars for $100K. Makes more sense to buy a fire-sale Karma vs the VL. Either way, it will be nice to have the good looks of the Karma and big balls to back it up.

A good friend who owns a shop that does work for the manufacturer, one of the high ups was actually stuck in the car for 45 min and couldn't get out. The car is hopeless. And my sons child seat has nicer fabric, the karma interior feels like burlap.
