When Henrik Fisker lost control of the company he founded we felt sorry for him. He penned a beautiful mustashioed sedan, worked hard to get it to production, was hit from all sides with set backs, and was eventually ousted shortly before the company declared bankruptcy. It's a sad story, and we didn't like watching it happen to a true artist and visionary. 

Now Fisker has teamed up with Hong Kong investor Richard Li to attempt to buy back his company. The pair have offered to buy the outstanding Deparement of Energy loan for somewhere between $25-$30 million. Also hoping to purchase the company is the Chinese Wanxiang Group and Bob Lutz, who one dropped a Corvette ZR-1's engine in a Karma to create a world-beating super sedan.

Simply because it's his baby, we're rooting for Henrik.
