Fisker would like to forget 2012 if possible. The year hasn't been good to the company with recalls, production delays, fires, delays on the new Atlantic, U.S. Department of Energy freezing a loan, and their sole supplier of batteries filling for bankruptcy.
In a interview with TheDetroitBureau.com, founder and Chairman Henrik Fisker said that his company is "actively engaged in conversations with potential strategic partners." Fisker went onto to say, "“We’d like to see if we can get something done next year.”
Fisker said the company is looking for "a close partnership where we could develop new platforms together and share purchasing.”
Asked who they are talking to, Fisker declined to. Possible partners are General Motors and BMW, two companies who supply Gas engines for Fisker.
