you should send it to Henrick -- In pervious time I had indicated the Karma would of been better served as a coupe given the rear seats , specifically the under the drive front seat -- no room what so ever and very cramped - unless your a kid -- hence a coupe 2+2 like you picture is the best application of the Karma footprint. now if you can only move the muffler pipes from the front to the rear and insulate the engine wall with an updated infotainment system -- you can sell your own version of the KARMA ;-)

Truthfully, if I can get the design worked out to do so, my thought is to actually buy some inventory and do a few of these. I already spoke to the engineer about moving the muffler location . Infotainment: looks like PowerSource has that one handled, but yeah--I agree. The Eclipse prototype I'll be doing, if I do a few should that turn out as I expect, I'll actually be using that one a second time and converting into a convertible (a-la-Sunset). Will keep all posted. PM me Henrick's email and I'll shoot him a pic lol.

How would a coupe give more foot space for the back seats?
I don't see this...

I don't expect a stretched design...

Have you considered doing a scissor door hinge? May be a little easier to open that huge door that way in a tight parking space. May not be feasible, just wondering.

Yeah--won't change any interior space/foot room. I'm inclined to believe he just meant expectation as a 2+2 coupe is more forgiving in regards to space rather than a four door sedan?

Thanks--I am flying out to meet with the engineer in two weeks to discuss more of these things in person. Scissor door hinge could be good. Much appreciated! Will keep updated.

Much appreciated! Will definitely hit you up if needed. Admittedly I'm nervous on round one but any resource I know is available, the better.
