2012 was not a good year for green car maker Fisker, makers of the Fisker Karma, and the news isn’t getting any better. A new report reveals that Fisker hasn’t built a car in six months, which is troubling in and of itself. Even worse though, Fisker claims this is no big deal, because they have a “sufficient supply” of Karma hybrids on hand. So why is that bad?

We all know somebody who seems to never catch a break. Sometimes their “bad luck” is merely a result of their own poor decisions. But sometimes, these people seem to get screwed by fate time and again, through no fault of their own. Fisker Automotive has made plenty of poor decisions, but this time it really seems like they’re getting screwed, as their insurance company is refusing to pay for $33 million worth of Karma hybrids destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
Fisker hasn’t had a great year, but the plug-in hybrid car company is chugging along and starting to build some serious cred as the green car of choice for the affluent. What started with a chrome Fisker Karma owned by Justin Bieber is snowballing into a display at the massive SEMA Show in Las Vegas, as well as a cameo role in the upcoming spy movie Paranoia.
