There is always the risk of buying into a new, fledgling automaker since they may be here one moment and gone the next. Such is the case in point with Fisker Automotive and owners are selling their vehicles at prices that will make you do a double take.
A recent search on eBay saw the average price of twenty-five Fisker Karmas up for bid hovering around the $60 to $70k mark. There were a couple that were around $50,000 mark.
"Anybody who wanted this car before because it was knock-down gorgeous, but couldn't afford it, well now they can afford it," said Bill Michlin, a dealer with the Fields Auto Group in Glencoe, Il. "The car is a pleasure to drive, it has horsepower beyond belief for an electric vehicle and it's so fun and so gorgeous. And now it's available."
So why are people getting rid of their Karmas? Well with Fisker's future uncertain thanks to bankruptcy, there comes the question of availability of parts and service down the road.
But who knows, maybe many of these new owners will turn to VL Productions to add a V8 engine...
