How cool would this be?
So far, we’ve only seen the new Porsche 911 in Carrera S and 4S guises, but more variants are expected to break cover this year including the much-anticipated next-generation 911 Turbo. There’s also going to be a rare Speedster version debuting at the 2019 New York Auto Show.
But what if the new Porsche 911 was made into a shooting brake for the first time in the model's history? Sadly, this isn’t likely to ever happen, but talented artist Rain Prisk has created a convincing-looking digital render showing what a more practical shooting brake version of the Porsche 911 would look like based on the new 992-generation model. It really shouldn’t work, and yet somehow, it does.
The new 911’s curvaceous shape translates surprisingly well to the shooting brake body style. It would probably sell extremely well too, since Porsche has already found success experimenting with different body styles like the Panamera sedan and the Macan SUV. In reality, of course, the 911’s rear-engine layout would pose a few challenges – we’re not sure where the engine or extra cargo capacity is supposed to fit in this render. If it ever did get the green light, the Porsche 911 shooting brake would be powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six developing 443 hp.
If you want a practical Porsche, the Panamera Sport Turismo is currently your best option. Starting at $96,200, the Panamera Sport Turismo has 18.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the rear seats up and 49 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. The upcoming electric Taycan will also be getting a practical Sport Turismo variant.
