Here it is, folks. This is the car that was under cover in the spy shots we showed you a few days ago, and it's going to be called the Fisker Atlantic when it debuts this week at the New York Auto Show. These two images of the car appeared today on a Czech website, and the rear shot clearly shows a license plate bearing the name "Atlantic."

Previously called Project Nina, the Atlantic will slot in Fisker's fledgeling lineup below the Karma, and reportedly cost considerably less. While any talk of pricing is just a guess at this point, rumor has it the Atlantic will be about half the price of the Karma, putting it squarely in the $45,000-$55,000 range. It's a plug-in series hybrid, just like its big brother, but the Atlantic will reportedly use a turbocharged four-cylinder from BMW as its range-extending generator.

We'll have more detailed information about the Atlantic when it officially debuts at the New York Auto Show this week, so come back for our live show coverage on Wednesday and Thursday, April 4-5.

      Beautiful car, and it's RWD. I wish Fisker well.

      It's every bit as gorgeous as I expected it would be. That's thrilling, but unfortunately that's not the issue. The Atlantic's success is going to come down to a few simple factors: price, range, quality, reliability. Especially on that last point, the media vultures are already circling. Any problems, even modest ones, could sink Fisker's reputation fatally.

      Nice rear 3/4 view. It's another polarizing design from Fisker, and I like it.

      Looks nice, but the front looks weird just like it's big brother (though better).

      This should be called the Titanic, as I fully expect it to sink, along with the rest of Fisher. How dare they waste our tax dollars designing another fancy car, and all the dog and pony showing that goes with it, when they can't even get the first one properly out the door? This is unacceptable... and not to mention it seems, at least from the first pic, that Fisker took a page from the Morgan design book with the cross-eyed headlights. Otherwise, a nice looking package.

        My tax dollars put $340 million per day to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?

        YOUR tax dollars? What was that in 2011? Like $11.37? Trust me, no one is worried about your tax contribution.

          Excellent point mawhalen53! Everyone seems to forget that 5000-lb white gorilla.

        My tax dollars went towards your education and other public services you use?

          You're comparing education and public services to a half-billion dollar on a car that's still out of reach for the majority of Americans. Even the worse public schools have a higher rate of success than Fisker has.

          Who says he went to a public school? And those services are necessary, this car is not.

        Fisker got LOANS from the Department of Energy, not just free money.

      Wow this car is ugly! The karma looks cool but this is just a mess, even the headlights on this car make it look like its crosseyed. Fisker dropped the ball big time on this one.

      Fisker to Karma buyers; April fools! But here's the twist; it's the Karma that's the joke.
