American EV firm Fisker has provided a glimpse of its Project Ronin sports car – a high-performance four-door GT to rival the Porsche Taycan, which aims to provide the longest range of any electric car on sale.

The brand has released this teaser image of the new sports car ahead of its unveiling in August 2023, indicating how it will look.

The Ronin was designed by the brand’s CEO Henrik Fisker, who also penned the BMW Z8 and numerous Aston Martins. Despite its electric underpinnings, the Ronin appears to adopt similar proportions to a traditional front-engined GT car. There’s a long bonnet and a sharp, pointed nose, with multi-element LED running lights integrated into the bumper.

The bonnet rises over the front wheels and to a steeply raked windscreen, and the Ronin is fitted with a pair of slender digital door mirrors and active aerodynamics systems. A visible shutline along the flanks indicates that the new sports car will be a four-door model in the mould of the first Fisker production car, the Karma, from 2011.

Like the brand’s first model, the Ronin is designed to seat four passengers in comfort, with space for luggage. The sports car will feature”‘unique doors for better ingress and egress”, which could mean a Rolls Royce-style rear-hinged design. The cabin will utilise vegan materials, too.

According to Henrik Fisker, the grand tourer could also provide the longest range of any production EV, thanks to a battery pack integrated into the car’s body structure:

“The aim is to achieve the world’s longest range for a production EV, combined with extremely high levels of performance. Project Ronin will be a showcase for our internal engineering, powertrain, and software capabilities”, said the CEO. However, he stopped short of revealing any specifics when it comes to the energy the battery pack will offer.

Currently, the Lucid Air Dream Edition can go further than any other electric car, with an EPA range figure of 837 kilometres.
