Default Fisker?

Anyone know what's going on with Fisker brand? I know as much that a Chinese investor bought them out after their bankruptcy.

A month or so ago I saw some for sale in the $20K range, but now the cheapest I see are above $50K US.

Do you think this is a good investment at this point, seeing how the prices are all over the place? What if I find a citrus one?

I believe Justin Biever owns one if that helps to sway your decision?

No, I'm not a "Belieber". Urban Dictionary: Belieber

@Willie: I was talking about investing in a used carMa (see what I did there?) with speculation of their value rising back up to where they were a year or so ago.

I think they are pretty cool cars.

I have never seen on in the "wild", but saw one at the DC car show. It is a large exotic plug-in hybrid with 400hp!

I briefly followed them. I think they were ok, but they took a beating when hurricane sandy hit the east coast. They had almost the whole inventory here on the east coast and a majority of the cars that survived the storm caught on fire from internal shorts from all the sea water washed ashore.
