Braking News: Fisker’s new owner and more

by Paul Daniel

Fisker Automotive Holdings has a new owner

Fisker-KarmaIt used to be you and me as part of Obama’s green energy push but we’re off the hook now, and out the money, because the new owner is…..wait for it….China’s Wanxiang Group with a $149.2 million bid. Cool cars but the market is not ready for this type of technology despite what the White House says. I’m showing my political side here. Sure I believe in climate change, it changes every day. Today here in Milwaukee, it’s 45 and sunny. Tomorrow it will be 40 and rain. As an FYI, buddy Mark is on the exact opposite side. We love to disagree! Read more, not about us, the car.

In other automotive news, and politics aside

Maserati Debuts the All-new Ghibli and 2014 Line-up in 50th Anniversary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Can’t wait to pick that one up. Read more here.

McLaren releases first images of their 650S coupe prior the reveal in Geneva. Wish Mark and I could attend that one. Read about it here.

Did you hear about the sinkhole that sucked in a bunch of Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum a couple of weeks ago. Pretty wild and sad at the same time. But they will be back thanks to GM who’s pitching in to bring them back to their glory.

Audi has a new car coming out, their S3 Cabriolet, a drop top which seats four. Come on Powerball and that baby would be sitting right in my garage.
