Surf’s Up: Fisker to Debut New Surf Shooting Brake at Frankfurt

fisker-surf-teaser-shot

The Fisker Karma has already wowed audiences in both sedan and convertible forms, but it’s about to spawn yet another variation. Next week, the automaker will reportedly unveil a Karma shooting brake -- dubbed the Surf -- at the Frankfurt Motor Show, as evidenced by these official teaser shots.

Fisker won’t release any specific details about the Surf until its official debut, but the company says the Surf will be a range-extended electric vehicle -- not a surprise, considering the Karma is just that. In sedan form, the Karma is driven by two 150 kW electric motors, although a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 (sourced from GM) serves as a generator once the lithium-ion battery pack’s charge is depleted.

The Surf apparently builds on that foundation by extending the Karma’s roofline and cargo area, although it’s hard to tell exactly how the car’s rear profile will look. Some suggest the Surf could resemble Ferrari’s FF; others predict a blunt, Honda CR-Z tail. Regardless, expect it to be as crisp and contemporary as any of Fisker’s recent designs.

According to Fisker, the Surf will be announced a week from today. Stay tuned to Automobile Magazine for more coverage on it and the Frankfurt Motor Show.
