I was out for my morning hike this morning when I heard a whining sound behind me. I figured it had to be an electric car. It drove by and at first I thought it was a Tesla but then realized the logo was not a Tesla logo. I could read the model name as it went by, so when I got home I did a search.
It was a Fisker Karma and it is one awesome looking car for sure!
Looks are OK but you can't judge a book by its cover. The car itself is a $120K piece of crap that can go 32 miles on one charge. They made cars for 1 year and then went bankrupt. Stick with your Corvette ;););)
It was another gov't boondoggle giveaway to someone. They ended up building the cars in Norway or some place like that. It was supposed to bring jobs to the USA, but of course it didn't work...except for the people in charge...they all got rich...
Those C4 Corvettes can be had for under $3000. I have only owned one car my whole life. It was a 76 Monte Carlo. I've always had trucks as a main ride and assorted Jeeps, Land Cruisers and now a neat little Trooper as a play rig. The itch to build a hot rod has been growing. I want to do something less popular. A '71-'73 Cougar interests me. My brother said "The front on that thing is butt ugly, it screams '70s?" "Exactly"
I have owned a few corvettes and 2013 was the last good looking corvette. But only the grandsport and ZR1 models. In 2014 they made them look too much like a Cadillac CTV with the straight harsh lines . sales are way down because of it. I have the ZR1 @ 750 hp It’s a race car, simple and powerful. I only drive it in the summer . The new mid engine design for 2020 in both electric and gas look interesting. Rumor is it will be available with 800+ hp.
Never had the Corvette itch but I have a friend that has owned many of them. He typically puts a few thousand miles on them then sells them. I don't get it.
I have 3 vehicles and they all serve their individual purpose. The F250 pulls and hauls all the toys and work stuff. The Audi S5 is for fun and going to the city, in a hurry. Just picked up a new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. My first Jeep product and I love it. 475 hp in a grocery getter. I think it might outrun my S5. The new Jeep Trackhawk is coming out this month - 707 hp in an SUV. Might have to have one. My wife asked why and I just answered "the same reason a dog licks himself".
I saw one of those Ford GT Supercars on the road just north of Detroit a few weeks ago... I don't know jack about cars but it's the only one I've ever seen. At first I thought it was a vette. I googled it and see that they cost something like $450,0000....... I can't see driving that thing on Michigan's pot hole covered roads......
