According to the German newspaper Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung, VW’s US$14 million contract will be enough to bring Karmann back from the dead with plans to convert the manufacturer in to a production house for Electric Vehicles that could possibly include the upcoming VW Up! (pictured).

Although details are a bit thin the funds could see as many as 1600 employees re-hired.
