I was looking through the latest Motor Trend and noticed that the Fisker Karma was an entry in the Car of the Year competition. MT's write up talked about if it was really a production (or pre-production car) but went ahead and included it. It did not win, or even make it into the final 10, I think. I was glad to see it alone with a couple of other electrics in the competition.
What struck me though, was the Karma's weight: 5400 lbs! Wow - hope that is a mis-print. I had considered waiting and getting a Fisker, only because I respect Fisker tremendously: he did the BMW Z8, which I like, and designed the Aston Martin Vantage which I consider the most beautiful and perfectly styled car in current or recent production (I regret greatly trading mine a year and a half ago). Anyway, I considered the Fisker months ago and decided that the lines were not that elegant and passed. Glad I did now. 5400 lbs!! If I drive a car that heavy it will be a Bentley Continental or nothing else!
