It could be a spiritual successor to the BMW Z4 M Coupe.
After what felt like an eternity, the long-awaited 2020 Toyota Supra finally made its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. The design has been divisive: some people love it, while others don't think it was worth the wait after its predecessor was retired 17 years ago.
With the full design revealed in all its glory, it hasn’t taken long for render artists to visualize new variants of the new Supra after Toyota hinted the coupe may not be the only version. We’ve already seen what a topless 2020 Toyota Supra could look like, and now artist Rain Prisk has used the magic of Photoshop to turn the Supra into a shooting brake. In a word, it looks stunning.
The Supra’s sporty design lends itself extremely well to the sleek profile and sloping roof of a shooting brake. Rain Prisk has also added lower suspension, wider wheel arches, and a new set of aftermarket wheels. You could argue it looks like a spiritual successor to the BMW Z4 M Coupe. Suddenly the render makes a lot of sense since the Supra shares a lot of its components with the new Z4 roadster.
Looking at the Facebook comments, some enthusiasts think the rendered shooting brake looks even better than the real Supra coupe. Now that’s high praise.
Will a Toyota Supra shooting brake ever happen? It seems unlikely considering Toyota had to join forces with BMW to cut down production costs of the new Supra coupe, and it would be even harder to justify a niche shooting brake version. If it ever did get the green light, it would be powered by the coupe version’s BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 that sends 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
