Autotrader Find: 2012 Fisker Karma With 90,000 Miles for $32,000

If you check through the listings on Autotrader, you’ll find most Fisker Karma models tend to have very few miles — likely on account of the fact that they were used as second or third cars, or because owners were worried about reliability, or because they were just saved as they were considered “special.” Not this one. This is a 2012 model, meaning it’s 6 years old, and it’s traveled more than 90,000 miles — a figure that would be a tad high, even on a “normal” car.

Not surprisingly, this Fisker Karma is among the cheapest on Autotrader, with an asking price of just $31,990 — far below the typical asking price in the mid-$40,000 range for most Karma models. It’s finished in black with a black interior, and it doesn’t look as worn as you might expect for a “daily driver” Karma, as the interior and exterior seem to be in nice condition.

So, who exactly used a Karma as a daily-driver car? According to the Carfax report, it was sold new in Rancho Santa Fe, California, an upscale San Diego suburb, and driven 53,000 miles in 3.5 years by the first owner. The second owner, near Houston, added the next 35,000 miles over the next 3 years — and now, it’s available to you.

This Karma is offered for sale by North Texas Direct, a well-known high-end pre-owned car dealership in Mansfield, Texas, near Dallas. And indeed, it’s listed for just $31,990 — a great price for one of the most head-turning sedans of all time. If you trust it to keep running for many miles to come.

  1. These are such beautiful designs, and getting 90K out of one is fantastic.  It’s a shame they went under, and just stupid that the revised edition with the Corvette drivetrain is what, $200K?  Honestly, these types of designs for sedans that are long and low (another is the AM Rapide) seem to be so desirable and everyone loves them but they’re all priced ridiculously high.  If Mazda would have made the Shinari and priced it at ~$40K, I think they would have sold every single one and left people wanting more.  Not sure why this type of design is so expensive.
