Born in Denmark in 1963 Henrik Fisker (later known as Henry Fisker) held big dreams and ambitions for life. After graduating from the Art Center College of Design Fisker went on to work for BMW at DesignWorksUSA. Later he worked for Ford, serving as the lead designer for Aston Martin.
In 2005 Henry Fisker started his own automotive company, by the name of Fisker Coachbuild. The initial Fisker models were the Latigo CS and the Tramonto. These early models were based off an old design, of having a separate chassis put on an entirely separate model. The Latigo CS and the Tramonto had chassis from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
In 2007 Fisker Automotive was started, and by 2008 Henry Fisker and his team of engineers had produced the Fisker Karma, capable of achieving an incomprehensible 100 MPG, on the highway. Currently, Fisker Automotive manufactures their automobiles in Finland, alongside the likes of Porsche. However, the company is thinking of opening a second plant in America, with the hopes of branching their consumer base out of Europe.
While Fisker Automotive is but a mere infant compared to the likes of Ford, GM and BMW the company has already started to gain quite a reputation among foreign consumers. There’s no telling how soon the popularity of Fisker cars may explode in the United States; especially if they’re able to obtain 100 MPG.
