Production of the Fisker Sunset Convertible confirmed in Frankfurt

Many expected that the new Fisker Surf shooting brake would be the big Frankfurt Motor Show news from the US-based automaker but we have also learned that when the Surf hits the streets in 2013, it will be joined by the Fisker Sunset – a convertible based on the architecture of the Fisker Karma sedan currently amidst production.

The Fisker Sunset Convertible made its debut as a concept at the 2009 Detroit North American International Auto show to positive reviews but the topless hybrid seemed to fade into the background while the production of the Karma sedan and Project Nina took most of the Fisker limelight. However, based on comments made by company CEO Henrik Fisker, we know now that the sleek hybrid convertible concept will be reality when the Fisker Sunset hits the streets in 2013.

The Fisker Karma sedan was designed with the goal of offering the overall form of a coupe with the capabilities of a sedan so it should come as no surprise that the 2-door Sunset Convertible looks great wearing a similar exterior skin as the 4-door Karma. From front to back, the Sunset looks nearly identical – aside from the fact that it doesn’t have a top and it has two large doors in place of the four smaller doors on the Karma. Inside, the Sunset has an interior layout that owners are going to want to show off, looking like nothing less than a premium luxury car with high quality, mutli-tone leather appointments accented with satin silver trim pieces throughout.
