Meet the Fisker Karma
Fisker has been teasing us with its hybrid GT since 2008. Now, at last, we wrestle the Karma off him and give it a once-over
Posted: 24 Feb 2011
To give you some sense of the Karma's scale, it's the same length as a Mercedes-Benz CLS with the wheelbase of an S-Class. Yet it's only the height of a Porsche 911 and is 5cm wider than a Panamera. So it's low, wide - very wide - with a long wheelbase for its overall size. If those numbers add up to a GT rather than a four-door luxury saloon, that's no mistake. Because that's just how the aluminium space-framed and bodied Karma looks when you get up close to it. It's like the solar-roofed concept for the next Aston Martin Rapide or Maserati Quattroporte that you can buy today.
