German auto design and engineering suppliers, Karmann and ZF created a conceptual droptop luxury SUV as a showcase car for the companies' technologies and expertise. When the wraps came off the road-ready Karma (oh, c'mon) concept at the Frankfurt show, it attracted more suits to its beefy haunches than Ruth's Chris Steak House. Presumably, they were there to see if the new market niche Karmann and ZF seem to have identified is worth pursuing. We'll probably see something like this in a low-volume context sometime in the future, maybe even by decade's end.
