Now let’s travel to Europe, where this kind of thing has gotten out of hand:

They had heard the mapping vehicle was in their tiny town that day, so they set up lounge chairs to sit while waiting. The whole sequence of photos is amusing. You should check it out, Gentle Reader

This is a thing in Canada, where’s it’s called Smart Tipping

Soon enough, the SFPD will warn smartcar owners to park these toys in a garage or backyard at night, you know, for security.

1. Smart Car tipping (Naughty naughty!); and

2. French-style, nose-to-the-curb parking

It Has Come To Pass.

Peas in a Pod: The Tesla Model S and the Fisker Karma are Very Hard to Tell Apart

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Ah memories:

“On 14 April 2008, Tesla Motors filed a lawsuit against Fisker Automotive, alleging that Henrik Fisker stole Tesla’s Model S hybrid technology and was using it to develop the Karma. Tesla’s suit claimed that the design work done for the Model S sedan by Fisker Coachbuild was substandard, and that Fisker Automotive diverted its best ideas to the Karma.[77] On 4 November 2008 CNET News reported that Tesla Motors would discontinue its suit after an interim ruling in favor of Fisker et al.[78] A news release on the Fisker Automotive website stated that Tesla was ordered to pay US$1,144,285 in costs.[79]
