The good and the bad can be summed up in one observation: The Fisker Karma EVer is lithe—but is it too lithe?

A low center of gravity, near 50/50 weight distribution and an ample wheel/tire package give the car handling characteristics that are lithe and taut. The Karma is more nimble than, say, a 7 Series BMW or Porsche Panamera.
