Fisker set to debut new Karma S "Sunset" concept in Detroit

Something new from Fisker? Color us intrigued, especially after taking a gander at the lone teaser shot that's been released. We already know that the production version of the Karma plug-in hybrid sedan will be debuting at the Detroit Auto Show, and now word comes that the budding automaker will have something else on hand to display called the Sunset. At this point, details are sketchy at best, but we're hoping that this is another extended-range electric-vehicle like its slightly older sibling. Could Fisker be having twins?
One possible hint that the Sunset may use a similar drivetrain is that the exhaust tips exit just behind the front wheels, just like they do on the Karma. We also don't see a B pillar behind the driver's seat, so we are left wondering if this could be a convertible. If so, the Sunset name would seem rather appropriate, don't you think?
UPDATE: Fisker sent us the following information about the Sunset: Similar architecture; identical powertrain to Karma. Looks phenomenal. It will blow your top! Also, official name of car is Fisker Karma S. S does stand for Sunset, but we're going with Karma S nomenclature.
