Toyota Supra Shooting Brake

This is the new Toyota Supra imagined as a shooting brake

I can’t hide the fact that I don’t care for the look of the new Toyota Supra. The front end of the 2020 GR Supra is a little too phallic. It looks similar to the older noses of the 2011 Mercedes SLK and Mercedes-McLaren SLR. That doesn’t work for me. It’s not my aesthetic, and I don’t believe it has anything to do with the car it replaces… all these years later.

There’s a way to make it better though, and it has nothing to do with the old Supra. What if you were to turn the new Supra into a shooting brake? Does it retain its sports car heritage? Who cares, since It’s mostly a re-bodied BMW anyway.

We’ve seen other sports cars turned into wagons before. The Callaway Aerowagen, for example. And I hope there are more to come, but the rest of the public just does not see the benefit to these expanded cargo areas and better-looking cars. I’m already trying to earn more money for the launch of the Audi RS6 Avant in 2020.

*fingers crossed I’ll at least get to borrow one*

The rendering of the Supra was done by Rain Prisk and you can watch him give the original car a facelift in Photoshop in the video he posted to his channel:

The shooting brake Supra might not be everyone’s cup of tea. I like it though. And now I’m left wondering about other sports cars that could use a shooting brake treatment?

Ford Mustang Country Squire, anyone?

    Why are there not more of these?

    Needs less tapering of the cabin sides IMO, compare the Volvo 1800S and ES for example

    If I wanted a new Supra rear end design, it’d be something like this, with a better integrated wing.
