The shocking news came from Henrik Fisker himself, who said he has quit his job due to major disagreements that he had with the automaker's executive management over business strategy.

"Effective as of Wednesday 13 March 2013, Henrik Fisker has resigned from Fisker Automotive as executive chairman, and has left the company. The main reasons for his resignation are several major disagreements that Henrik Fisker has with the Fisker Automotive executive management on the business strategy," Fisker said in a statement sent to Autocar.

Fisker Automotive has yet to comment upon Henrik Fisker's departure, but it's natural to believe that the rupture has something to do with the company struggling to build new Karma models after its battery supplier went bankrupt.

As we already told you last month, Fisker is considering selling 85 percent of shares to China's Dongfeng for a total of $340 million.
