Half a billion bucks to build cars in Finland with motors made in China. Gotta love it.

Hmmm... hard to respond without sounding "political." So I'll just say that I predict it will be as successful, practical and economically feasible as one might expect a heavily-subsidized electric vehicle to be.

Well, the Fisker serves to remind us that incompetence and stupidity and corruption existed long before Obozo.

I don't know about any incompetence or corruption, but do know that Henrik Fisker seems pretty-forthright about why the car isn't being made in the USA, but they are using our tax-dollars.

Henrik Fisker’s perplexing interview with ABC News | Delaware Inc.

It's because we don't have any manufacturer(s) capable of building it.

It's OK, really informed ppl say we'll be able to build them in 3-5 years.
