Whatzit? I spied these 3 spy cars today in Oceanside


Ok you car aficionados, I spied these 3 spy cars today in Oceanside at the gas station. They all took on a small amount of gas but I noted a filler door on the driver’s side which may be for a plug indicating these are hybrids? Not much sound and I didn’t see any tail pipes. So Whatzit?

    I kinda thought BMW hybrid too. It’s a 4 door and looks a lot like a Fisker Karma.

    I’m in agreement – BMW sedan version of the i8

  6. Brian says:

    It’s a fisker. It’s NOT a BMW. It doesn’t have kidney grills, it doesn’t follow the design language of the current BMW generation. And BMW does their testing in Germany they wouldn’t have a potential i8 sedan driving around SoCal

    Fisker karma

    They’re Karma’s. But I disagree about BMW testing only in Germany – we ran across several (3 if I remember) X6’s up near Bishop the summer my niece got married (2007). They were apparently doing hot weather testing as the temps that week were consistently above 105. We saw them at the hotel where we were staying. All were camouflaged, and of course the drivers wouldn’t tell us what they were.

    Are these Karma Revero’s? Check it out on the Karma website.
