the front fascia reminds me of:
And... it's one of those cars you just have to see up close and in person to appreciate it. Everyone has their own opinion about style, more power to ya.
Obviously, if you like Fisker designs, it might work for you. If you don't... not so much. Henrik uses a lot of the same style elements, and some on the Latigo look like those you have seen some on his other works, like the BMW Z8 (tail lights), Aston V8 Vantage (hood), and the Karma (front brake ducts)
In another thread regarding "Unicorns", we began discussing this car again. So as not to hijack or derail that thread, I am posting some additional pictures of the interior and engine here.
Also, I was encouraged to update the Wikipedia entry for the Fisker Latigo, which I have started to do...
You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig.
Dave, are you still a director at Fisker?
There's another (former) Fisker guy here in TCL.

Btw: I've also noticed how you imminently dismiss any opinions besides your own (see also the corvette c7 tread where you attacked). Not very polite. That you don't like this car don't necessarily means that you don't know what you are talking about.

However, I did recently get a group of Datsun guys together from the 311s Forums and we had a great fun run in August...described on the 311s.org Forums and also here:
You meet nice people in Datsuns!

Everything Michael does at Spriso Motorsports is over-the-top quality from what I have seen. I still hope to find a buildable Datsun to bring him and let him work his magic over time.
Meanwhile, DiamondDave, if you take a road trip south into NorCal, come on by the garage and you can test drive the Latigo or anything else in the garage. As the Datsun guys will tell you, I come from an very humble background, so I love to share my cars with other true car guys!
