One of the auto biz's top writers is Dan Neil, who will be glad to tell you he won a Pulitzer Prize.
Recently, in one of his columns in The Wall Street Journal, Neil was reviewing the Fisker Karma and wrote that it was the world's most interesting car.
While there is NO question that the Fisker Karma is an intriguing product, it really is a writer's wet dream. There are so many stories and angles to talk about, you could literally write about this car for days.
But really, the world's MOST interesting car?
I can think of several products that have better stories to tell and didn't cost me my valuable taxpayer dollars.
But before more of my bias kicks in, I'll let the Spies decide...
...Meet the world's most interesting car. Every square centimeter of the Fisker Karma riots with clarity and design intent and vested individuality and scorn for convention the likes of which we haven't seen since the Tucker Torpedo. Which is to say, the Karma is radically different from any other car. "Different" might strike you as an empty accolade, but believe me, in the global car business, the forces of homogenization (fuel economy and crash standards, aerodynamics, limited supplier base, material costs) are almost irresistible. That's particularly so in the premium luxury segment. Yes, the BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Lexus full-size sedans and four-door coupes are great, but they are for the most part interchangeably great. A car so far outside the mainstream as the Karma is nothing less than a Nietzschean act of will. And cojones...
