Fiskers are efficient luxury hybrids. Former GM Exec Bob Lutz didn't like that, so he had the hybrid system ripped out, threw in a supercharged V8, and the VL Destino was born. Now, with Fisker doing poorly, VL has reportedly put in a bid to buy the company. V8 Karmas for everyone!
The Lutz-led VL Automotive and Chinese supplier Wanxiang Group have reportedly made an offer to take over the beleaguered automaker. Right now, anything would be a good change for Fisker.
If VL takes over, then we'll have an American super sedan with a Corvette ZR1 engine and gorgeous styling to take on the super sedans from Europe. You're on notice Mr. BMW M6 GranCoupe GT M-Sport xDrive iS ActiveHybrid!
