Starting to think Fisker is cursed!
 
I'm sure a great many cars were destroyed in the flooding, but leave it to Fiskers to *catch on fire* sitting in a flooded parking lot!

Meanwhile, the Tesla S has won Yahoo! Motors and now Automobile magazine's car of the year awards.

Really hope BMW emulates the latter, not the former!

And things continue ever worse for Fisker...

Fisker just can't seem to catch a break, honestly.

First all their press is bad press, with 2 spontaneously combusing in driveways.
Then Romney/Ryan call them "a loser" in 3 out of 4 internationally viewed debates.
Then their battery supplier A123 goes bankrupt.
Then the flood.

I have $5K sitting in Fisker's bank account, a deposit for the perpetually-delayed Atlantic (now projected for late 2014), and because I have skin in the game, I monitor news developments carefully (via google "news alerts" sent to my phone on a daily basis). There have been several times in the past couple of months where I've almost pulled the plug and asked for my deposit back, but man I hope they make it to production in Delaware.

I would love to have one of the first $50,000, made-in-USA, beautiful Atlantics.
But until that happens, I'm going to regret not being in queue at Tesla.
