Was kind of hoping they'd drop the Cheshire Cat grin, but I guess that's part of the design language now.

It is indeed a very beautiful car. The design language, especially the front and the roofline, has a lot of similarities with that of the Karma. That's good, it reinforces the Fisker-brand. But the rear is quite different. And Henrik has been using a lot more curves on the side and back. Will probably look very good.

They did manage to keep the name of the car under wraps (or actually under some tape). It's very hard to make out the name, unless you know what it is.

Man, part of me is excited to see it 'spied' but part of me kinda wishes the car was kept under wraps to build up the suspense leading to the April 3rd reveal. Oh well. At least we didn't get the full on body shot.

The logistics people transporting a car like this should've known better than to load it outside!!!

Anyway, where do I send my deposit? :D

I'm really curious about the drivetrain packaging. I don't think you could put the Karma drivetrain in there and still have a back seat.

According to the previously announced roadmap, the Nina I think will have a single electric motor (as opposed to the two in the Karma) in a much smaller form factor. What remains to be understood is how much power this thing will produce and how fast it will be, range, etc.

Let's hope that it comes in under 4,000lbs and does 0-60mph in a time respectable vis a vis the Model S.

Call me cynical, but it seems awfully convenient for the transport crew to happen to uncover just a tantalizing bit of the car to get attention but not enough to give it all away. Nevertheless, having seen the early drafts of this car, the final product does look amazing and the Inferno color is absolutely spot-on. This is going to be very exciting.

The Nina will be faster than the Karma, so I've heard. It will have more than one gear. The range will be somewhat less (smaller battery).

hiding the rear door handle makes it look more like a coupe.
Ah didn't realize it was hidden, thought it was just a 2 door. I wonder if they'll match the wheel colors to the car. Really curious about the performance and space.

I do hope that one day we will also see a Karma coupe. This beautiful rendering by 'Joel', based on the Sunset, was already done several years ago, but it still looks awesome.

I wonder if this is a drivable prototype given the guy in the photo was getting in the car.

I cannot wait to learn more about the rumored multiple-speed gearbox.

The expressive exterior design is gorgeous in my opinion. Excellent work Fisker!

I'm optimistic that Fisker has learned a lot about both packaging and EV drivetrain components over the past 4 years and is applying that knowledge to the Nina design.

So the resourceful folks at Tesla Motors Club have been trying to uncover the name... and it looks like they may have found it. Check out the thread here: http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/6298-Fisker-Nina/page12

...They ran a trademark search for 'Fisker' to see what's been registered (http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield). And low and behold, their guess seems right.

The name will either be: Miramar, Atlantic, Nina, Bison Club or Nilfisk. Likely the one of the first three, would be my guess. Although it is still entirely possible they haven't yet registered the name with the Trademark office.

Update: Here's a modded photo using some filters from the Tesla Motors Club folks:

Bison Club? Nilfisk? Did they look up the right Fisker? Or maybe Fisker is branching out into hunting gear and fish oil.:D

Any of the other names would be great. I even think Nina is a great name but I am definitely NOT a consumer marketing guy, so what do I know :huh::huh::huh:
