At the 1997 Detroit Motor Show, Karmann presents a most innovative study of a cross-country vehicle, the ”Open-View.” This car is equipped with a ”Rigid Retracting Roof”, a new and innovative roof system. It is made of three glass parts, that may be folded together and stored in the luggage compartment.
