Fisker and Galpin Auto Sport to introduce 'Ultimate American Muscle Car' in LA

By Chris Bruce
Posted Oct 23rd 2014 8:44AM


Henrik FIsker is stepping back onto the stage at a major auto show. We just aren't exactly sure what he's doing there yet.

The mysterious news comes courtesy of the press conference listing for the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. It shows Fisker in back-to-back presentations to debut vehicles on November 20 from 11:05 to 11:30 AM. The first is with Galpin Auto Sports, and the second is with Galpin Motors, which seems to indicate two different models.

From what Autoblog has learned, the project with GAS is being dubbed the "Ultimate American Muscle Car," but there's no indication about what that means yet. Even less is known about the other model, and Fisker reportedly wants to keep things a secret before the show.

While the information is certainly scant at the moment, we're intrigued by the possibilities. Fisker certainly knows how to pen an attractive vehicle – just look at his work on the BMW Z8, his term at Aston Martin and even the Fisker Karma. In addition to that, GAS is no slouch in the performance department, what with vehicles like its 1,058-horsepower GTR1, based on the Ford GT.

I would be shocked if it has any connection to Fisker Karma at all. Probably based on an entirely different car.

I am sure the folks at Galpin are far too smart to let Henrik anywhere near the corporate checkbook.

I hope the nav works...
