    1389994080

    VL Automotive is closely tied up with Fisker. The company's first product, the Destino, is a converted Karma and the Destino Red Concept, just unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, is the same hardtop Karma convertible that Fisker showed in 2009. So, what a surprise it was to see that Bob Lutz, who owns half of VL Automotive, is ready to convert a brand new ...

    1389393060

    Last year around this time, we were prepping to see the first iteration of the VL Destino; a Fisker Karma with a Corvette ZR1 heart transplant.

    Henrik Fisker: too many pure electric car models; Karma production re-starting "soon"
    1360349400

    Is Fisker Automotive on the ropes? Listening to cofounder and executive chairman Henrik Fisker speak at the Economic Club of Chicago luncheon at the Chicago Auto Show this week, you certainly wouldn't think so.

    Detroit: Bob Lutz brings Destino, a ZR1-powered Karma, to Detroit
    1358177040

    There's nothing wrong with the Fisker Karma that a honkin' American V8 engine won't fix. At least according to Bob Lutz, it seems. Called the VL Automotive Destino, this machine is the brainchild of industrialist Gilbert Villereal and the aforementioned Lutz, and is intended to compete with such well-regarded performance sedans as the Porsche Panamera and ...

    Official: Even Fisker is attending SEMA with some custom Karmas
    1351099860

    The Fisker Karma is again going where no pricey, Finnish-built, extended-range electric hybrid sedan has gone before: SEMA. Since the Karma just about touches the ground as is, and already wears enormous wheels, the aftermarket mods – for this year at least – stick to exterior treatments. The two Karmas that will greet the Vegas audience have ...

    Is the Fisker Nina not the Fisker Nina?

    We were excited to see the first spy shots of the Fisker Nina yesterday but now we're wondering if this isn't the Nina at all. Oh, we're still sure the car in these pictures is the one that Fisker will be unveiling in New York Tuesday night, but take another look at the rear badges on the car. Notice the big blue stickers? Whatever name they are covering ...

    Who wants to wait until the official unveiling of the Fisker Nina plug-in hybrid next week when we can see spy shots right this second? Neither do we. So, what do the shots reveal? For starters, we can see that the Nina is indeed shorter than its Karma big brother. This is expected, but the impression we have is that the Karma's design language ...

The trouble is, packaging two powertrains into one lithe shape penned by the same designer behind the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and the BMW Z8 has left the Karma with little in the ...
