Fisker Automotive produced one of the world’s first plug-in hybrid electric cars in the late 2000s. The company founded by Henri Fisker and a business partner recently filed for bankruptcy and has been bough over by a Chinese investor and renamed The New Fisker.
From all indications, Henri used to do design for Aston Martin.
Fast forward several years and he is in the process of building a new car named Thunderbolt. But Aston will have one of this as they say the car used some of their trademarked design elements and also based on their latest Vanquish. So they headed for the courts.
But both parties have amicably resolved their issues resulting in Fisker deciding not to produce the Thunderbolt and Aston withdrew the case.
Hehehehehe, Aston, wait till some people from the Far East decides to copy and mass produce cheaper versions of your products. Then your legal funds will dry up. They haven’t spared the Beetle and the BMW.
