Is it a Fisker? help me with wise comebacks

This morning I was walking with a friend over to look at my car in the parking lot, and a guy walked by asking "Is it a Fisker?" I said "No, it's a Tesla, a real 100% electric car" or maybe I just said "it's a real car", anyway, I had not been up on what Fisker is other than seeing on Recargo's news that a bunch of them were burned up somewhere in NJ after Sandy flooded the parking lot. So, I went and looked up Fisker Karma, and found that:

it's not pure electric, it's a hybrid, its combined range is only 300 miles (50 miles on the electric, with a 20.1 kWh battery)
its 0-60 is 6.3s (slower even than the non-performance S)
it weighs 5300 lbs (whoa, and I thought the S was heavy at 4647 lbs)
its luggage compartment is 6.9 cubic feet (the S's frunk is 5.3, and the trunk is 26.3 with the seats UP!)

not counting that the S looks gorgeous, weighs less, has a smaller turning radius,
goes faster, farther, carries more people and cargo, built in California...

what wise comebacks should I be prepared for next time?
No doubt I think Tesla is a much better car, and I am only looking for facts and numbers if you have some to share.

Volker - I think most of us agree that bashing, of any sort, is worthless.

Fisker, on the other hand, provokes something else from us.

People seize upon their tribulations because of who they are.

They are posers.

They dress like a performance car, but drive like a dog.

They purport to be green, but are actually very petro-centric.

They claim to be advanced technology, but are in fact substandard engineering. So seriously deficient, in fact, that "Explodes on contact with seawater" is the result.

They wave the patriotism flag to garner government money, but build offshore.

They are not who they claim to be, and it is troubling to hear their assertions. It is troubling too when they are casually equated to Tesla. They are not the same. They are not even remotely similar.

When Romney awkardly lumped Tesla into the same sentence with Fisker, all of us cringed.

Humor fundamentally springs from irony. What I found extraordinarily ironic upon hearing of Fisker's seawater pyrotechincs episode is how roundly it laid bare the posers that they are.

TM really did the heavy lifting to make the EV revolution happen.

Fisker ... didn't.

I thought they were also the ones causing many of the waves about Tesla not using dealerships because they want their dealers to be able to sell Teslas... I have no idea where I read that.

Yes, I believe one of the lawsuits is by a Fisker dealership.
You read about it right here.

As TM's original lawsuit alleged, Fisker is a parasite. Karma's gonna be a bitch.

Ahh.... Seriously? A Fisker? You this think this looks like a Fisker-- one if the ugliest damn cars on the road?

Naw; this car actually goes as fast as it looks.

No, Fisker is a hybrid; 1/2 car 1/2 bomb

No, Fisker is the hybrid with Alfred E. Neuman grin, this one is pure BEV.

No it's not a Fisker; this car actually performs.

No this is Motor Trend's car of the year, the car you are talking about was viewed as still a work in progress.
