Remember when Fisker Automotive denied that the Surf – the wagon version of the Karma – was delayed? Yeah, you can forget that, apparently.
A reader named Dennis posted this to the Fisker Buzz forums – "I was told that Fisker is willing to build Surfs one-off for anyone willing to pay $200K" – and we thought that was interesting enough to ask for an official response. Guess what? It's kind of true. Roger Ormisher, Fisker's senior director of global corporate communications and PR, told AutoblogGreen that:
Our friends at Green Car Reports found out that the Surf and the Sunset models are taking a back seat to the Atlantic. And we're sure that dealing with the latest recall tops the To Do list. Still, who's interested in getting their own special one-off Fisker?
The Surf is currently on the back burner as we finalize our plans to bring Atlantic to market. That is the number one focus here at Fisker as the volume of that model is key to our long-term success.
There is no official plan to build the Surf at this stage as an assembly plant volume variant, so the only option available is as a modified, bespoke or custom build Karma. If someone came along with a big enough checkbook, we are always open to discussions.
