When you conceive a project that involves the design genius Henrik Fisker, the customization know-how of Galpin Auto Sports, and a car as iconic as the Ford Mustang GT, you’re off to a good start. Even more so when you add a 725 horsepower supercharged V8 engine. On paper, the VLF Rocket—driven heroically by Jeremy…
We can all make plenty of jokes about Mustangs eating pedestrians at your local parking lot car party, but this one is a bit more special. For just today, I get to test out the Mustang-based, 725 horsepower, Henrik Fisker-designed VLF Rocket V8. It’s got a supercharged 5.0-liter Coyote V8, the body is redone in carbon…
The old Fisker Karma was an intriguing and deeply flawed hybrid that was sort of fascinatingly disjointed. The new Karma, now called the Revero by a company named Karma, is still just as messy—and inefficient.
The Fisker Karma went through hell and is now back again, this time spun off separate of its designer’s company as its own thing called Karma Automotive. It was bad before, and reports indicate it is, yeah, still bad.
Ever since the once-bankrupt hybrid sports car maker Fisker announced its comeback last year, the company has promised a fully-autonomous, all-electric 400-mile range sedan. We’ve seen plenty of teasers over the past few months, but now we have the final design. And it looks, well, like a Model 3. Except uglier.
Fisker has released three teaser images of its real $130,000 electric car called the EMotion, and it’s definitely a tamer look than the Hot Wheels concept car from a few months ago. It looks like an alien ship from Independence Day disguised as an early-2000s Japanese luxury car.
For years I held one thing dear: that perfection was attainable, as evidenced by the Aston Martin DB9.
Henrik Fisker’s car, the EMotion, is named—I think—because it’s supposed to be an electric car that will move. And also will probably make you feel things. It’s Fisker’s first official stab at re-entering the market after the Fisker Karma, and his to-do list sounds oddly similar to another startup electric carmaker’s.
With its heaven-reaching doors closed and the dark shadows removed, this is what Henrik Fisker’s new car looks like. It’s supposed to be all-electric, so they’ve named it the, uh, EMotion. At its heart is supposed to be a nanotechnology that is yet to be seen in cars.
Fisker is back with a car they are extremely adamant is not an updated version of the car that put them out of business years ago. Fisker’s old cars might have been flawed, but they were gorgeous. We all wanted them to be good. The new one is, hm, less so.
Henrik Fisker, from whose pen flowed the beautiful lines of the Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, the BMW Z8 and the Fisker Karma (RIP sorta), announced earlier this month that he would start up a new electric car company. Today, he took to Twitter and showed us this sleek profile of a car with up-swingy doors.
Henrik Fisker, the famed automotive designer behind the gorgeous lines of the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, and the late Fisker Karma, is going to take a stab at the luxury electric vehicle market—again. Let’s all just wipe the slate clean and start fresh, because you can do that when you’re a rich, famous…
Henrik Fisker’s latest creation, a Viper-based monster with more than 700 horsepower that doesn’t look like an Aston Martin at all known as the Force 1 V10, has provisions for two champagne bottles squeezed between the occupants. “Brilliant design choice,” you’re probably thinking about the mixture of alcohol and…
What’s up between Henrik Fisker and Aston Martin these days? Drama, man. Drama.
In the wake of Aston Martin filing a lawsuit against Henrik Fisker claiming copyright infringement, the two parties have settled their dispute and the Thunderbolt won’t be produced.
Aston Martin is taking Henrik Fisker to court over the Thunderbolt concept, with the automaker claiming he blatantly copied trademarked design elements in his one-off creation and misrepresented the underpinnings of the coupe. [UPDATE]
The latest news in the never-ending saga of De Tomaso’s rebirth is its reported sale to a Swiss holding company that plans to bring a two-door, mid-engine sports car to market. Maybe something like the rendering above, which Henrik Fisker drew up late last year.
Henrik Fisker is back in the business of modifying cars for the style-obsessed one-percent, and this time he's taking an Aston Martin Vanquish and adding his patented blend of putting style over substance.
