Tire Car Wheel Vehicle Automotive tire


-Ocean Extreme
-Great White
-Sea Salt *
-20" AeroStealth **

* I never buy a car with a dark interior - I hate it when the seats are hot when you get it!
** These aren't my favorite wheels, but I'll want the best possible range, lowest chance of curb rash, and lower replacement tire cost that the smallest wheels provide. I just wish they had other options in smaller sizes :)

I'll update this when the packages are released but so far:
-Ocean Extreme
-Blue Planet
-Black Abyss
-22" Black F5 Air Glider
This is pretty much my exact build, I think… from the cool pics that have been posted here that I’m attaching, I believe the color is this color (Blue Planet). Although the pics look matte finish, these pics look way too glowing to be Big Sur Blu which was suggested when I asked the forum on the “Pallet Warehouse” picture. Although, the website pic posted by you looks too light to match the pics I’m attaching. However the color chart pic of Blue Planet seems like the closest match. It’s weirding me out. I emailed Fisker about it and they have not responded which is the first time they have not got back to me.

I am really hoping to get the exact color in these pics. However if I’m lucky enough to get into the “One” group, I’d probably acquiesce for the darker Big Sur Blu color. At around 28,000, I’m not holding my breath

Aargh!!! Fisker did get back to me finally on the above pictures I posted of the glowing blue Smurf looking color. Advisor told me that they were likely “color graded” (?) from Big Sur Blue and not a real color…..crap. Why make so many pics of a car in such a cool color when you’re not going to make it? Bummed…. :(

Well then I’ll probably go Blue Planet since me personally, I’d rather have a brighter color. Can’t wait to see the “real“ configurator

Patiently waiting for more info, but can't find one yet.....

Ultra
Solar Orange (could be Sun Soaked or Red Planet...Great White/Marine Layer would be ok, but "settling" vs. wanting...no blues/greys/black)
Interior to coordinate (none so far...too-hot/dark black or easy-to-soil white/blue stripe are non-starters)
20" wheels not black (none so far)

What can't you find? More info or patience?

Eliminating blues reduces your choices by 80%. Even the grays and greens look blue. I am still on the fence on color, I will need to see some more in real life. Leaning towards Blue Planet but would like to see an option near Brittish Racing Green.

LOL....info. If I didn't have a good supply of patience, I would have been gone a while ago! Still waiting on some non-"breakthrough" basic info, such as SiriusXM in the radio or not. I've heard a lot about things of no importance to me (California mode, dog windows, smart traction, etc.) I prefer colors from the warmer part of the spectrum...red/orange/tan, etc. A blue tinted with enough red to be purple could be ok if they had one. BMW has a gorgeous purple on the new 2 Series this year. The problem isn't the exterior choices...there are enough, more than I expected, actually. The problem is the interior color selection, or lack of...so far. Hoping the full configurator will reveal some new choices not yet revealed. I just find it hard to believe Fisker thinks black or white covers the market. Also, having only one 20" wheel and making it black is disappointing. But, no reason to jump to final conclusions before all actual info is known.

Tesla also only offers black or white as interior seating colors as well to simplify the manufacturing process and get cars out which is what Fisker needs to do. It makes it easier to scale and significantly more cost efficient. Maybe they add new colors down the line.

I don't doubt the operational and cost benefits of complexity reduction. Been there/done that at another OEM. But, I do question the Design Office choices. There are two versions of black (PU and cloth), white with a blue stripe, and a dark blue for Extreme as dark as black, but in blue. It would not be difficult to have taken those 4 slots and filled them with a more appealing array for a wider range of tastes. For a car with 14 exterior choices, I've worked with designers who I know would have done a better job.

I'm sure some are frustrated by the interior choices. I doubt many will opt for the blue interior - if it is even available on other trims. Replace the blue with a brown would have been a better choice. But as it is black will be the predominant color followed by Sea Salt (which to me is more of a gray than a white).

It's probably an order of a magnitude more work for interior color changes. Many more parts need to be customized including everything affected by the interior color. Paint is paint.

That's a good point about the complexity of interior color changes. Exterior paint is easy. Interior has so many trim pieces and fabrics that would be affected.

It's interested you mentioned that about the blue interior - it's acaully something that I am very interested in. White is out due to my young kids and doggos, and black just seems boring to me. But I wouldn't be against black, however blue just seems more interesting to me. At the end of the day it's a place to park my caboose...

If you intend the Ultra, the blue interior is not available. That is black or white/blue stripe only. The base car interior is black only.

I'm not sure which trim level yet: it is inbetween the ultra and he extreme. Really want to see what the interior spacing is like before ultimately pulling the trigger. I may be an outlier, but I actually don't mind waiting for mine as it gives time for some of the first run kinks to be ironed out.
