Could be a Pentax branded Fuji with K mount adapter. The MILC market is very small, especially after waiting a few years to make sure every Pentax customers who might want one already got the Fuji version.

Then you want a K-01.
No I had a K-01 but ultimately sold it. It has a screen not an EVF.

Do any DSLR makers make a camera with an EVF?

Canon EOS-M5 has built-in EVF
Canon EOS-M3 and EOS-M6 have optional EVF.

If the K-01 had an EVF, I would have purchased it instead of the K-30 I did get.

The KP could be that concept camera before that incremental step/improvement to this ME-D so lets see.
Nothing to loose anyway since if it comes it comes, it does not it doesn't.

In addition Sony has the A7 series and A6x00.*

*Yeah, I know Sony makes DSLT and not DSLR, but it's nearly the same thing.
**I'm not counting Nikon, since the Nikon 1 line seems to be nearly kaput and is only a 1"-class sensor, anyway.

Looks like the MX-1 with more knobs.

Somehow I think I have seen this drawing before....some years ago maybe.
That is because the community here has discussed this very rumor as a result of this very image at least 4x now at length.

Here is the last one that got nipped in the bud.. Pentax M-E aka mirorles retro - PentaxForums.com

It better have EVF or it is doomed. At least I won't buy one without EVF.

My bad.

Isn't the combination of a tilting LCD and an optical viewfinder the exact definition of having the best of both worlds?

There are compromises for OVF and EVF and an LCD isn't a substitute for an EVF. There are things an EVF does easier than an OVF and vice versa. I tend to prefer an OVF myself for the things it does better.
