    I know a hybrid, but I so wish Tesla did this design instead. :D What a gorgeous car, even better looking in person.

    All opinions regarding style are subjective. De gustibus non est disputandum (There is no accounting for taste).

    Personally and subjectively, I find the style of the Fisker Karma (or the reboot, the Karma Revero) to be exaggerated, gauche, and tacky.

    I find the original Tesla Model S, nosecone and all, to be far more attractive. I'd love to be able to buy and drive one! Some people find that car's style too bland, but to me the Model S's quiet elegance is exactly on target.

    If I wanted something far less practical, much more flashy, something for conspicuous consumption: I'd far rather have an Excalibur Phaeton than a Karma Revero! Is the Phaeton an EV of some sort? Heck, no! But it is beautiful.

  3. Like Rob Lay, I too think the Karma Revero, or the Fisker Karma, looks better than the Teslas. It doesn't look very practical, though, so I would prefer to buy a Tesla or a Bolt.

    yes, tastes are very personal. I like the Ferrari 308, curves are like that of a beautiful woman hips, waste, etc. The Karma is more curvey than many of the modern CAD outputs. :)

    I hate the fromnt grill of the car, in my opinion the e motion is much better looking car.

    Gotta say I'm with @Navin on this one. I no longer find the front of the first Fisker jarring, but the downward arc of the fender meeting the the A pillar kills it for me (I know, it's weird. I don't notice it in every picture, but when I do, bleeh)

    The new Fisker eMotion is much more to my liking.

    the karma is the best looking current production 4 door car. doesnt matter what the propulsion system is.
    btw, the karma WAS the tesla design, but Elon and Henrik disagreed on too many things and parted ways; henrik took his design with him, and Elon kept his tech. a real pity since the tesla functions quite well but looks like a honda.

    why is there no Karma sub forum ????

    The first time I saw a Fisker I did not know what it was. I saw it from the back and "WOW" I thought. Then I saw the front and started laughing.

    well thats the way i feel about tesla's....
    good thing we all have different tastes isn't it!
    thats funny coz that is exactly the area i think makes the karma so alluring. the dip in the waistline evokes a jumping cat - looks lithe and aggressive at the same time.

    looks are subjective of course, but.... i have owned the car for only a month and i can tell you that it draws non stop admiration. people stop me at lights, in parking lots, even in my own driveway, to tell them what it is and give them a tour.
    it is a show stopper ! too bad the performance doesn't live up to the looks, but i love it anyway.

    btw domenik, the area you dislike on the karma, is repeated in the eMotion. look closely.

    I see what you mean, but the proportions are a bit different on this car so I don't have the same reaction. I saw one in my town (Fisker Karma) a couple years back, and I thought it looked great in traffic. Definitely stands out with its strong presence.

    They messed with a good thing, the folks at Fisker..I dont like the new front end either, but its still very attractive.
    Whats taking so long for all the other auto manufactures to come out with cool cars? The i8 is beautiful and I'm close to buying one, but the Gullwing doors puts me off unfortunately as a daily driver..
