Shaken by supplier problems and cash flow issues, Fisker is said to be delaying the launch of its second model after the Karma for at least a year. The four-door Atlantic hybrid was unveiled at the New York auto show in April and was due to go on sale in 2013. But Fisker is not denying reports that the launch is on hold until mid-2014. Money appears to be the issue. The Department of Energy froze a $529 million loan to Fisker last May after the company had received about one-third of the allocated funds, and a company spokesman told Automotive News that Fisker won't be announcing a new date for the Atlantic until it gets funding from the DOE or someplace else. Paging Mark Zuckerberg.
