Although the split front grille may not be to everyone's liking, by and large the overall shape of the Fisker Karma is what defines it as much as its hybrid propulsion system. The trouble is, packaging two powertrains into one lithe shape penned by the same designer behind the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and the BMW Z8 has left the Karma with little in the way of useable trunk space. That's what prompted Fisker to showcase the Surf concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year.

The Surf takes the four-door Karma's shape and extends its roofline with a hatchback/wagon/shooting brake body style aimed to make the luxury hybrid more versatile. The result isn't what we'd call cavernous, but as any good fundraiser worth his tax receipt book will tell you, every little bit helps.

And so Fisker is reportedly set to put the Surf into production, with the final version slated to debut not at the Geneva Motor Show next week, but at the Paris Auto Salon in September. We'd think Fisker might want to expand the cargo bay a little more before it hits showrooms, but we'll have to wait until the fall to find out.

The shooting brake isn't the only model variant Fisker reportedly has in the pipeline, as reports further indicate plans are afoot to put the Sunset convertible – complete with retractable hard-top also known as the Karma S – into production for debut in Geneva next year.

      exterior looks awesome, I think I am liking this more than the four door Karma... now, is it me, or the interior looks a bit on the cheap side??

      I wonder if it comes with that leather tissue box cozy for the rear passengers, or if is an option, or included in a trim level.

      So how much more taxpayer money is it going to take to develop yet another toy for millionaires?

        How many $ billions in taxpayer money did the oil and natural gas industries need to develop drilling sites, techniques, and infrastructure so that you could fill up your car and heat your home at a reasonable price? Plus how many billions in taxpayer money were spent to support military efforts to ensure our oil supply from the Middle East over the past 50 years? A $193 million loan looks like pocket lint compared to all of that. Yet I don't hear you complaining about it. The other guy was right--you don't understand how DOE funds work.

        considering that millionaires pay the bulk of the total tax, why the hell not?

          Really? Tell that to Warren Buffet and his secretary.

      The styling is so breathtaking. Maybe they should ditch the hybrid complexity and just offer an amazing conventionally powered luxury car.

      Granted, I am a wagon lover, but this is the first Fisker that's gotten me remotely excited. I even think it looks better than the original!

      Wasn't the point of using a large wagon as a beach vehicle to have extra cargo capacity over a coupe/sedan to haul surfboards, coolers, and use as a dressing room? This isn't going to gain anything other than style. It reminds me of the Crossfire's narrow rear hatch, which has a tiny opening. Plus I'm not sure I want my hybrid car down in the waves.

        Down-ranked for that, really? It is a good looking car, just commenting on the inappropriate name.

          On the contrary, it weighs about 1000 lbs MORE than you perceived it to weigh. Not bad, actually. It's a 4 door, full-size sedan. What exactly were you expecting?
