    Thank you Andrew.

    To build 500 cars, that's very difficult to come from nowhere and do that, even with large amounts of money. There has been a lot of hype, billions spent and no volume except Tesla.

    I think you are probably right about lap time.

    I don't believe Jay will be putting an order in for this one. Less than impressed with the "hot-rodded' Fisker Karma.
    At 3:00 "Not sure exactly what the future will bring." Not a great business plan :eek:

    This cars key feature is the independent motor at each wheel for turning/rotating, yet it isn't barely mentioned in the test drive (never mind demonstrated).
    Also, it's single gear, top speed bias (206 mph), hurts 'normal' speed range acceleration.
    At 21:10 the guy tries to explain why it only has a single gear. For a $100k Tesla Model S Performance that's fine, but for a $1.3 mil 'supercar', not so much.

    The $110k (?) Porsche Taycan has a 2-speed trans.

    wonder what darko guy thinks of this video now. cant be pleased. $1.3m and jay doesn't seem impressed. whole purpose of the car is to have 4 wheel vectoring and jay doesn't mention how it drives other than doesn't seem that fast. and how does jay not know its based on a fisker? that really surprised me.

    Did you see where we were driving ? Surface streets around Burbank with Jay waving to everyone including the CHP.

    I don't know if you saw the earlier video at the airstrip.

    that looks more impressive than jays review. what are the #'s for that race? need to know if teslas #'s correspond to other tesla tests stats. was it 1/4 or 1/2 mi? etc.
