Fisker Automotive Inc., a startup maker of luxury plug-in hybrids, lost 338 of its $103,000 Karma sedans at the port of Newark, New Jersey, including 16 that burned in a fire triggered by salt water, said Roger Ormisher, a spokesman for the Anaheim, Calif.-based company.
Nissan alone estimates more than 6,000 Nissan and luxury Infiniti brand cars and light trucks are "un-saleable" because of the storm, Travis Parman, a company spokesman, said late this week.
Some 4,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles were at the company's port facility in Newark when the storm hit, said Jana Hartline, a spokeswoman for Toyota's U.S. unit in Torrance, Calif.

"We have about 1,300 that we are taking a second look at" that may be salvaged, she said. "A little bit under 3,000 will likely be scrapped."
Honda and Acura dealers expect to have to scrap about 3,440 vehicles, said Chris Martin, a spokesman for Honda's U.S. unit in Torrance, California. Scrappage decisions will be determined by dealers and their insurers, he said.
Chrysler dealers lost about 750 vehicles from their stock due to hurricane damage, said Ralph Kisiel, a spokesman for the company.
