A straight up stunner. When the Fisker Karma comes out in 2010, it will make the Mercedes CLS and other upcoming four-doors from Porsche and BMW look like dinosaurs.
An all-new car - a plug-in hybrid with a solar-paneled roof - is a huge move for Henrik Fisker, whose company builds custom bodywork for the BMW 6-series and Mercedes SL. Fisker promises up to 50 miles on electricity, and will even sell solar panels for the owner's home to charge it in the garage.
Some 7500 examples are planned for $80,000 each. When these type of cars start selling in the 20s and 30s, no one will think of buying a Prius ever again.(Bill Pugliano / Getty Images)
