Ain't nobody sicker and my Fisker, "vroom, vroom," ho
(Fiskers don't make noise when they start up...just so you know)
Fisker Automotive was a bankrupt electric automotive company based out of California. However, in February 2014 Fisker was bought out by a Chinese company, Wanxiang, and is back in business. Their first (and only) vehicle was the Fisker Karma:
Being mainly a plug-in electric vehicle (technically a hybrid), the Fisker Karma didn’t make the traditional “vroom vroom” of an internal combustion engine. The Karma’s engine is almost silent but Fisker decided to put a speaker in the engine to make somewhat of a futuristic sound:
As noted above, because of competition from fellow California based Tesla Motors, poor reviews, and the high cost, the Karma never got its feet off of the ground and fell bankrupt in late 2013.
Donald may be making a reference to the ignorance of many wealthy people now. He is trying to relay the fact that they brag about many things they don’t have — such as a Tesla — and they get caught red-handed by making a false statement about their toys. That’s why the beat stops and his tone changes.
