Henrik Fisker will host a 25-minute press conference with Galpin Motors

After more than a year of leaving the automotive company which bears his name, Henrik Fisker will return at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show in November with a new car. The 61-year old Danish car designer famous for creating the look of such cars like the Aston Martin DB9 and BMW Z8, will have a 25-minute press conference with Galpin Motors on the 3rd day of Press and Trade Days.

Details are scare on what car or concept will Fisker and Galpin Motors will present during the press conference since the designer has kept far away from the public.

Henrik Fisker was the co-founder of Fisker Automotive. It was his attempt in creating a car brand that focused on creating plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The only production car that the company ever released was the Karma which was originally slated to be released in 2009 but was rescheduled all the way to 2011. The company filed for bankruptcy in November 2013 and in February 2014, Fisker was bought by the Wanxiang Group, a Chinese automotive parts manufacturing company.
