Anyone know what kind of car this is?

Saw this in a parking lot as a drove by and had to pull in and look at it. Never seen one before. Anyone seen this?

Nah, but I have heard them mention it on top gear. You should watch it they have tons of episodes on Netflix.

Yeah at first I thought it was a Maserati the two door cause of the way the front looked but when I saw the four doors I had to get out. It was very sleek but idk if it's worth over 100k. That interior better be top notch!

Re: Anyone know what kind of car this is?

From what i remember it has a 4 cyl gm engine that drives electric motors...hp is low but torque is 1000 ft lb! Costs just under 100k, limited production as of now. Top gear rules any person who likes cars should watch both the us and british versions

Gotta love the Fisker company for shaking up the industry a bit while remaining largely unknown to the general public. Haha.

Does anyone know how they get that much torque compared to horsepower ratio? Especially out of a hybrid. That's insane.

Funny you say that, I actually thought it was a type of Maserati at first. That's why I stopped originally. But was happily surprised to see that rare beauty!

Haha apparently neither have a lot of people. My dad said I was pretty lucky to see one. But I hear they are already going out of business

They're pretty cool cars for being so "green" I've seen them marked down actually. I think they are awesone but I'm sure the reliability is iffy. Great design tho.
