See what the new Porsche 911 could look like in a Shooting BrakeApril 13, 2019
Designer from Ubisoft Ryan Prisk presented how a new Porsche 911 (992) could look like in a body breaker. In his interpretation, the sports car received classic proportions for such cars and organically fitted into the overall design of the stretched cargo compartment, hidden behind the massive rear pillars.
Initially, the term Shooting Brake was used in relation to horse-drawn carts intended for the transport of groups of hunters along with ammunition. The first cars with this type of body appeared in the UK in the early 1900s, and for several decades the shouting break designation was used as an alternative to the station wagon. Later, in the 60s, the cars that combined the elements of the station wagon and the coupe began to be called so. Often these were more practical versions of the two-door sports cars.
From the mid-1990s, series wagons with a heavily littered roofline began to be called chute breaks. For example, this designation received the Mercedes-Benz CLS and CLA Shooting Brake, as well as the new Kia Proceed. Even Porsche calls the Panamera Sport Turismo its first serial shooting break.
However, the most famous representatives of this genre were the Bentley Continental Flying Star Shooting Brake, built by the Italian studio Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, Ferrari 365 GTB / 4 Daytona Shooting Brake, Volvo P1800 ES and Aston Martin DB5 Shooting Brake.
