Fisker Karma

An electric vehicle with extended range and real performance. Is it cool?

It looks like a badly photoshopped Chrysler Neon. "It's got solar panels in the roof you know. I can do a zillion miles without stopping for petrol so it's tough **** if you fancy a Twix." zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Uncool.

Or it's really pretty and has immense torque and is rear wheel drive, will do 125mph does 0-60 in 6.3s which I think is decent for an electric car or at least the first 'proper' one as far as I can see.

Not a fan of silent cars, with piped noise

A car has to have an engine with cylinders and pistons, no matter how good it looks or how it performs I'd miss the noise

It looks as if too many fat blokes have sat in it.
I do not like the looks of that. Hi-tech as it may be.

Yeah, the "sag" around the base of the A pillar kills it for me, looks-wise. It's as if the wheelbase is about 18 inches too long and the frame can't support the weight (which wouldn't be surprising as it weighs almost 2.5 tonnes!).

Uncool. Almost cool to look at but it's just not quite there (agreed with comment about the sag look). The fact that it's piped noise is almost seriously uncool. And just 'cause leccy/hybrid is seen as cool doesn't mean I'd rate it as cool - to me we should be looking to hydrogen power I need to hunt out the clip of James driving one on Top Gear.
