2020 Toyota Supra Shooting Brake Rendered as The BMW Z4M Coupe We Need

After five years of waiting for Toyota to turn the FT-1 Concept into Supra production reality, the Internet was like a loaded spring. So it didn't take for the various renderings portraying the Supra in new ways once the sportscar made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday.

And the render that brought us here is probably the most impressive to date. That's because the pixel play portrays the 2020 Toyota Supra as a shooting brake.

It's impossible not to think of the old BMW Z4M Coupe and Z3M Coupe when you come across this body-modded Toyota. And it's just as difficult not to miss those delightful oddities.

Of course, we're not expecting the Japanese automaker to come up with such a derivative anytime soon and there are multiple reasons for this.

For instance, Toyota did build an 86 Shooting Brake, but the company's Australian arm only created this as a concept.

And the BMW resemblance mentioned above is, sadly, another reason in favor of steering clear of such an effort. Want another one? Sales - BMW and Toyota decided to reduce development costs by building the 2019 Z4 and the 2020 Supra together since sportscar don't sell all that well, so the clientele for a Supra S/B would be extremely limited.

Then again, it wouldn't surprise us to see an eccentric shop out there coming up with a Shooting Brake incarnation of the Mk V Toyota Supra. For one thing, the new Supra should become one of the tuning world's favorite children, with the reputation of its predecessor hinting towards this.

Meanwhile, we're inviting you to feast your eyes on this rendering. The image comes from Rain Prisk, a digital art label that has a fetish for S/Bs, as we've shown you on multiple occasions. For example, here's a Dodge Viper coming in such form.
