    The only reason Obama is even in this thing is because of the media's steadfast embargo of any story like this.

    Can you imagine if this were Bush's car? Well, if it were Bush's car, that's what we'd know it as. Bush's Car. Bush's Folly. The Burning Bushmobile.

    Approximately 16 of the $100,000+ Fisker Karma extended-range luxury hybrids were parked in Port Newark, New Jersey last night when water from Hurricane Sandy’s storm surge apparently breached the port and submerged the vehicles. As Jalopnik has exclusively learned, the cars then caught fire and burned to the ground.
    Our source tells us they were “first submerged in a storm surge and then caught fire, exploded.” This wouldn’t be the first time the vehicles, which use a small gasoline engine to charge batteries that provide energy to two electric motors, had an issue with sudden combustion.

    Great cars. You just can't get them wet. No problem, then. We'll just have to make sure they never get, um, outdoors.
