How is that? They've met every target date for development so far. They still seem poised to meet the rest of the targets for both production and performance. Where have you felt they under-delivered?
oh in the several delays to market. Dan Neil has a 1 Million dollar bet with Elon Musk that they will not be on time...

Just saying, the Fisker is way closer to delivery than the Model S, so what if its heavier, its still a very nice overall car.
I wish Tesla luck, and if it really will be availble in 2012, I would wait to buy one, however, putting down a $40K deposit to reserve one of the 300 mile, limited production of 1,000 signature editions, is probably more than I want to spend (that will be a $90K car if its a dollar) I just filled out my RAQ for a Leaf, that shows how I feel about the Model S
The Fisker is really very nice, but also in that very pricey range as well, and I already own a hybrid
