New models scheduled for Geneva are beginning to pile up and the Autobloggers headed to Europe are looking luckier and luckier by the day. We told you a few months back about an upcoming Fisker supercar, and it looks like the Artega GT Coupe is that vehicle. Equipped with a VW-derived 3.6L V6, power will come in at around 300 hp. Those are some pretty lousy numbers for a supercar, but this Fisker isn't very big. At 13 feet long and 6 feet wide, the Artega is about the same size as a Mazda MX-5 and at less than four feet tall it is about the same height as a Lamborghini Gallardo. Top speed of the Artega GT Coupe is estimated at 165 mph.

Henrik Fisker helped design many of the current Aston Martins on the road today which makes every future vehicle he pens worth mentioning. The Fisker Tramonto and Latigo CS were great-looking too, but their basic shape and stance were borrowed from the Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG and the BMW M6. The Artega GT Coupe is definitely a departure from what Fisker has done in the past, but it just isn't ground-breaking. No word yet if the Artega will share a platform like the Tramanto or Latigo but we think there's a good chance that's the case. Production will reach 500 units per year and the price tag should be around €75,000.

      I believe the pictures should put peoples notions to rest, remember folks this car is basically the size of a Lotus but much wider!

      A little bit porsche, a little bit Ferrari, tight package and proportion. Sounds like everything a German built baby supercar should be.

      Nicely Done Henrik

      Wait, it's the size of the MX5, but you think there's "a good chance" it'll share a platform with the Tramonto or Latigo? Those are an SL-Class and 6-Series, respectively. I'm pretty sure there's no platform sharing potential there.

      The 911 and 430 gazed lustily at eachother and headed for the bedroom...

      Wow Obviously This Guy Cannot Come Up With Any More Original Designs. Granted He Did Design The Astons So Ill Give Him Some Slack On Copying Those. But Raiding The Porsche Design Vault? Thats Rediculous

      Looks like a Cayman and Z4, but there is no denying it's beautiful. The VW engine they choose can be rung out pretty well, this should be an outstanding vehicle.

      Price seems very reasonable as well.

      Wait, why would the Artega share platform with the Tramonto or Latigo? That Artega has mid-mounted side scoops, and the hood/bonnet is very low-profile; that only suggests a mid-mounted engine configuration. Could it be based on a Porsche Cayman, I can't reject.

      perhaps not completely original, but...

      quite beautiful, in my opinion.

      Eclipse/Cayman.If I were Mitsu I'd buy the design.oh what the heck!just do a knock off like the rest of the asian manufacturers!

      It may have many Porsche styling cues but... it looks better than any Porsche, so... if Porsche can't do it at this level, then just let Fisker do it, please.
