2012 Fisker Karma Sunset Convertible

February 24th, 2011 by By auto # Fisker

The Sunset shares its aluminum space-frame platform with the Karma sedan. A two-door hardtop-convertible version of the delayed Karma series-hybrid sedan. Fisker’s so-called Q-Drive series-hybrid powertrain consists of two electric motors (combined output: 402 horsepower and 960 pound-feet of torque) that power the rear wheels, and a 260-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The engine fires when the batteries run out of juice to extend the range up to 250 miles.

Business partners Henrik Fisker and Bernhard Koehler are visibly on edge. While they want to dedicate every ounce of their focus on this all-important launch of their first baby, the 2012 Fisker Karma, their attentions are being constantly pulled away from it by big conference calls regarding the money and logistics of launching the whole Fisker Automotive franchise. Are they really and truly answering a $95,900-$108,900 question with this bold effort that enough people are asking? It’s clear they just want us to fall in love with their lux’d up plug-in extended-range electric sedan.
We’ve been helicoptered into the infield handling circuit at California Speedway in Fontana to have a brisk go at one of Fisker Automotive’s first completed verification prototypes of the Karma, built by Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, Finland. We are already assuming that the build quality and finish of all the pretty parts will be fine, as Valmet has learned a lot about these things while building cars for Porsche to strict Stuttgart standards. We also already know that the car is indeed pretty inside and out, albeit particular to some out there, seeing as Fisker has designed such lovely lady lumps as the Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, not to mention the BMW Z8 roadster.
