  1. Fisker's new owner, the Wanxiang Group wants to get the Fisker Karma back on the marketplace as soon as possible. How fast? According to a report from Reuters, the company is planning to stick with the original 2012 design. A source tells Reuters the reason for sticking with the older design is due to not going through crash testing and certification again. "It will have to be nearly identical to the 2012 model, or it would need to go through (safety) testing and certification again. I don’t think they want to put a lot of engineering into it either, as well as probably use up some of the old parts that are in inventory," said the source. However this plan presents a problem. Suppliers who dealt with Fisker aren't happy with the brand because of losses suffered with the company going under. "They lost money and had dedicated facilities that were severely underutilized. Many scrapped their tools or took them out of their facilities," another source said. Now a source close to Fisker says the Karma will be slightly different, but wouldn't go into detail about what will change. “Not 100 percent identical. The new Karma will be different in many key areas. It will have noticeable upgrades.” Source: Reuters William Maley is a staff writer for Cheers & Gears.
