You Can Get An Incredible Deal On A Fisker Ocean If You're Willing To Risk Everything

Against all odds, the reborn Fisker managed to actually produce a car. Multiple cars, even. The Ocean looks cool and comes with a relatively reasonable starting price of $37,499; even the top-of-the-line Ocean One wasn’t ridiculously priced at just under $70,000 considering it had more than 350 miles of range and a boost mode that could temporarily send more than 500 hp to all four wheels. But what if we told you that you could buy an almost-new Ocean One for way less than $70,000?

Yes, we managed to find a 2023 Fisker Ocean One selling for just under $50,000. It only has 2,109 miles, and it appears to still be in showroom condition. Plus, it looks fantastic with its Blue Planet paint and comes with a set of 22-inch wheels that were a $1,450 option. The original owner may have farted in the seat a few times, and it’s not clear from the listing how many Boost Mode launches are left, but when was the last time you saw a car without a V12 that lost $20,000 to depreciation over just 2,000 miles?

It really is an absolutely incredible deal, and anyone who’s considering buying a new Ocean would be a fool not to give it a look. The money you’ll save compared to buying one new would more than pay for your flight to Texas and back, as well as the cost of having it shipped to wherever you live, and you’d still have enough left over to take a nice vacation. Plus, the listing promises that it still has what’s left of Fisker’s 72-month/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.


As long as Fisker is still around to honor the warranty, you’ll be covered if anything breaks. If that doesn’t give you peace of mind, we don’t know what will.

Wait, what is that? Fisker lost half a billion dollars last year, has paused production after missing an $8.4 million interest payment and could file for bankruptcy at any moment? Oh, and owners have reported a laundry list of reliability issues, and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration is investigating multiple complaints from owners claiming the Ocean refused to shift into park?

Well, if you put it like that, this sub-$50,000 Ocean One might not be the screaming deal that it looks like at first glance. If Fisker goes under, forget the fact that the warranty will be useless for getting repairs covered. The only way you’ll be able to get replacement parts will be if Magna has a few leftovers that you can convince them to sell you. Oh, and over-the-air updates will also stop, leaving you with whatever software problems and missing features the car has currently.

On the other hand, you don’t know for a fact that Fisker is going to file for bankruptcy. Maybe Nissan actually will swoop in with a few hundred million dollars to save the startup automaker, buying plenty of time for Fisker to get profitable and fix all the Ocean’s issues on its way to becoming a major player in the EV space. If that happens, your limited-production Ocean One could one day become an incredibly valuable collector’s item.

So yeah, there are some possible downsides, but there are also some incredible upsides. And what’s life without a little risk? You’re almost definitely guaranteed to lose, but what if you actually win? (You won’t.)
