There's not a whole lot to say about the Fisker Nina teaser image that the company just dropped into our inboxes, it's largely just a way to say the real thing will be unveiled at the New York Auto Show in a few short weeks. In the thick, stylized lines offered here, we see hints of the Karma and not a whole lot more.

So we went looking in the archives. We've heard the Nina plug-in hybrid will be about the size of a BMW 5 Series and be powered by a BMW four-cylinder engine. We've also heard production is supposed to start by the middle of 2013 and that three variants will be available by the end of 2014. Those are reports from the past and we know how things change in the green car world. We'll have to see what Fisker tells us in New York when it offers up "a business update and a glimpse of our future" to know for sure. What are your thoughts?

      It should at least be beautiful. It looks like he's drawing on his inspiration from the DB9 and the Vantage. People bitch, but starting a car company is *hard*. Doing it with an entirely new propulsion methodology is even harder. I feel like we have become a nation ready to just rip down anyone who tries to take a chance on these new cars. It may be unlikely, but I for one hope Fisker can pull it off.

      I'm not sure how they can keep going without the DOE loans, but I wish them all the success in the world.

      Don't laugh at me, but I don't understand the gravitation towards traditional proportions when the proportions of many modern cars are dictated by the mechanicals. The Nina will use a small electric motor....why the need for a long hood? Why not more room for the people? It'll still probably look good, though.

      BMW 4cyl? Will that ObamaStash in hand you'd think they'd use a GM or Chrysler powerplant. EcoBoost would have been cool as well.

      I wonder if Fisker's demise will be similar to Saab's? Where once you think they're done, they keep getting resuscitated until its just in a sad state.

        Interesting that they're introducing anything new when they have so many issues with product problems and finances. Maybe they should get the first one sorted out first--

          They have no future without this car. It has always been part of the plan. To put this on the back burner is to roll over and die.

      Fisker will be out of business before this car ever gets built.

      Hopefully after the public beta that is the Karma, this one works.

      Yay, this one will only weigh 4800lbs, go 38 miles on a charge, and get 24 miles per gallon when running on the internal combustion engine.
