If you’re Justin Bieber, Carlos Santana or Bob Lutz — and even if you’re not — you’ll be happy to know that your Fisker Karma will be more fixable in the event of a fender-bender or two, all thanks to parent company Wanxiang.

Green Car Reports says Wanxiang America’s Fisker Coordinator Linyun Frank Qi dropped a note with the Fisker Owners Club, informing them that his company, still in the rebuilding stage, was “settling and still negotiating with over 300 suppliers” involved in the Karma’s construction to regain access to every part made for the premium PHEV.

As for when and how customers will receive the new parts, along with the service needed to put everything back together, no timeline was mentioned. Wanxiang purchased Fisker in a bankruptcy auction February 2014 for $149 million, promising to restart production of the Karma as soon as possible.

    I love the style and sheer presence of this thing. Nothing else on the road is quite like it – and for that reason alone it deserves to live. It would be even more appealing with some sporty ICE under the hood. A 4.2 Audi V8 driving all 4 wheels sounds good.

    Honestly, I always liked these more than Tesla. The idea of a generator diving an electric motor is very good, because the car doesn’t run out of electricity while driving.

    So, basically, Fisker owners have to wait on some dubious supply chain arranged from China to keep their cars running.

    Sounds like the old days prior to Viagra, when some Chinese dude took your $100 and said your powdered rhino horn would be sent right to you from Shanghai in about three weeks…

    Even though Fisker was a ridiculous taxpayer boondoggle (sort of like GM) I will say the cars are beautiful in the flesh.

    The photos don’t seem to do them justice.

    Is Wanxiang still on track to build the Bob Lutz version with the GM LS powertrain?
