In addition to the debut of the production version of the Karma luxury plug-in hybrid, Fisker Automotive will also be unveiling a new concept at the Detroit Auto Show next month: the Fisker Sunset. We don't have much beyond the teaser shot above, but we do know that Fisker Automotive CEO and namesake Henrik Fisker will announce details about the Sunset at the company's press conference in Cobo Hall on January 12. Besides the green Karma, Fisker is perhaps best known for their coachbuilt SLs and BMWs, but Henrik Fisker is also one of the most influential designers in the last decade, with most of the current Aston Martin lineup and the late, great BMW Z8 attributed to his pen. We can't wait to see what this wunderkind is up to now.

UPDATE: AutoblogGreen has more on what's officially called the Fisker Karma S.

      Given the current state of the auto industry, the naming choice of 'Sunset' seems oddly prophetic.

      [Unprovoked Chrysler bash] Maybe Fisker could sell the name to Chrysler... [/bash]

      Fiskers are beautiful cars... except for the grills! God, those are awful! (My opinion)

      Im liking the diamond motif Fisker has going on... very bold. Im looking forward to this debut more than the Stirling Moss'...

      I can't wait to see this car, nice teaser. I hope it has a front-end unique from the Karma though, rather than being just an ungainly 2-door version a la Maserati.

      Looks to be a convertable version of the Karma.

        Word...but I'm curious why he'd give it an entirely new name, if that's the case.

      Fiskers are great looking cars and got one of the best side views of any car, but the grill...well at least it's not bland. I couldn't say that the grill destroys the whole car, but it's s shame on a other ways so good looking car.

      fisker has great designs, but the grill is a no no.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Based on the name and the side shape, Looks like a convertible (coupe size) of the Karma!
        • 6 Years Ago
        the name probably means its the flagship, based on


        "The only thing that is plain about the Fisker is its logo: officially, it represents the Californian sunset over the Pacific Ocean, bisected by two vertical stripes representing the designer’s pen and the modelmaker’s clay."

      Yeah, looks like a convertible, and the headrest look out of a Benz. You can see part of the front brake , and the brakes look beefy.
