Did Katy Perry Buy 5 Fisker Karmas For Her Crew? ($500,000 Purchase)

March 21st, 2014 by  

Update: Katy seems to drive a Tesla, so it’s probably that someone made a mistake and said she bought Fisker Karmas for her crew when she actually bought them Teslas.

katy perryRumor is: Katy Perry just bought 5 Fisker Karmas for some of her employees for a cool half-million, because she hates LA smog and didn’t want to deal with the guilt (… or karma?) of polluting gasmobiles.

There are a few warning signs this may be nothing more than a rumor, however:

  1. The original source of the news is reportedly the Daily Star, but the story cannot be found on the Daily Star. (Hmm, that’s odd.)
  2. A Katy Perry friend supposedly in the know reportedly said: “They are completely electric and top of the range in car luxury but she hates the smog in the air in LA. In total she spent over half a million dollars on the cars and now her conscience is clean.” Well, Fisker Karmas aren’t completely electric… in fact, their electric range is pretty minimal. But, hey, it’s completely possible a non-expert could be confused.
  3. Who would dish out money for 5 Karmas when they could get 5 of the much better Tesla Model S for less?

That’s not to say this rumor isn’t true, but it’s looking doubtful at this point.

Perhaps she actually bought Teslas and someone is confused? Or perhaps it’s a completely fabricated rumor?

Of course, Fisker is just coming out of a long and controversial bankruptcy. A bit before Fisker went under, remember that Justin Bieber got a Fisker Karma for his birthday. He later gave it to a friend and fellow pop superstar, Sean Kingston, and said that he was looking forward to buying the Fisker Atlantic when it comes out. We’ll see if that happens… assuming the Fisker Atlantic will eventually be manufactured.
