Henrik Fisker's Cars Are About To Road Into the Future

New Times profiles Danish designer of the Karma plug-in hybrid luxury sport sedan.

Not long ago, Henrik Fisker was dashing up Interstate 5 to San Francisco when a highway patrolman clocked his Aston Martin roadster -- a car that Fisker himself designed -- going 97 mph.

He protested. ("It was 90 at the most.") He got a ticket and set the cruise control at 70. For the next four hours, "I was overtaken by every grandmother," he said. Running late, he pressed down the pedal.

This time, the radar gun caught him going 88 mph.
