The Fisker Karma extended-range electric luxury sedan has been out of production since July 2012, but it's hardly gone away.
Chinese automotive supplier Wanxiang, which now owns the car company, hopes to restart sales of the low, sleek, striking four-seat sedan under the Elux name sometime next year.
And owners continue to be stopped on the street and asked about the striking lines of their cars, almost three years after Karma assembly halted.
While there remains a lot of uncertainty around Wanxiang's plans for the former Fisker, there's another option for anyone wanting a Karma.
It turns out that a decent selection of used Karmas is currently for sale.
A quick search of eBay Motors pulled up 17 cars, with prices ranging from a low of $41,111 to a high of $76,500. Most seemed to fall within the $50-$60,000 range, though.

All Karmas sold in the original production run were 2012 models, and the ones currently for sale generally seem to have low mileage.
The highest-mileage example here had 38,000 miles, and there were a couple of cars showing less than 2,000 miles.
Most of the cars for sale appear to be in stock condition, but some have custom wheels and other modifications.

Searching AutoTrader yielded 70 results, with a similar average price of around $50,000 to $60,000 and all listings showing fairly low mileage.
There were a few cars listed with less than 1,000 miles--nudging prices closer to $70,000--and at least two listed as "new," with asking prices of more than $100,000.
While the total number of used Karmas for sale isn't terribly large, they represent a fairly significant proportion of the 2,600 or so cars cars built before Fisker's bankruptcy.

To put that in perspective, the Tesla Roadster was built in similar numbers, and there are hardly any used examples to be found.
As it works to relaunch the Karma, new owner Wanxiang will reportedly keep most of the original design, but address "bugs" that afflicted the first run of cars.
Early cars suffered from faulty electronics and lithium-ion battery cells, as well as the potential for cooling-fan fires--issues potential buyers should be aware of.
All extant Karmas were assembled by Finnish contractor Valmet Automotive, but Wanxiang will reportedly move production elsewhere.
Fisker still owns an ex-GM assembly plant in Delaware, which Wanxiang claimed it would use in some capacity when bidding for the company's remains.
