Matchbox Monday First Look, Part 2: Fisker Karma EVer in black...
As we stated in Part 1, this is Part 2 mainly because the Fisker Karma doesn't go at all with the models of Part 1.
(And Matchbox Monday is STILL brought to you by MVE Collectibles...)
Normally we would feature this new color of the Karma with a few other new basic offerings from Matchbox. After all the model has been around for a few years, and black is not necessarily a stunning color.
But wait, it is stunning! Clearly Matchbox has limits on what color they drape over the Karma, just as Fisker demands that the solar panel be included on every model (no argument from me). So Matchbox had to release a Karma in black again (it was done in 2011 I believe), only they changed the wheels. And poof! The best looking Fisker Karma yet!
And Fisker needs all the help they can get. Several rounds of layoffs, cars sitting in the dealerships, the buzz slowly fading...we may not see Fisker around much longer. Which is a shame, because there was a lot of promise. Good looking, fast hybrids. People aren't buying the Fisker, but I don't think it is because of looks. The car is beautiful.
So if Fisker goes under, do we see Matchbox's version again? Maybe for nostalgia's sake, but since we are repeating colors, maybe it is time to give it a break. I can think of several established cars to put it in its place.
It has been a good run, Fisker Karma. I have every version Matchbox made of you. Glad you left in style...
