Gore-backed (and US govt-backed) Fisker Automotive delivers $100,000 plug-in hybrid lemon to Consumer Reports; inexplicably broke down after 180 miles of testing
'One of Fisker primary financial backers is venture captital firm, Kleiner Perkins, of which Gore is a partner. Fisker received a $528.7 million conditional loan from Dept. of Energy's...That's a LOT of money to produce only 200-300 thus far, some of which seem to be lemons. This is same company that caught flak because after it secured US govt financing, started assembling their cars in – Finland. Fisker seems headed for same fate as Solyndra'
