Two interesting renderings evoke memories of the legendary BMW Z3 M Coupe. Based on the new compact sports coupe Garching – the M2 – the renderings bring an M2-like model with a shooting brake-shaped rear end and some great flared fenders.

Although the body shape of the virtual BMW M2 Shooting Brake promises more practicality – and would be significantly more individual than the classic coupe design of the M2 – the market for such car is fairly limited. The enthusiasts would no doubt love it and likely buy it, but a low volume seller wouldn’t be a smart investment.

With the same 370 horsepower engine and chassis from the M2, the Shooting Brake variant would prove to be a track monster – and a great daily driver.

The Z3 M Coupe is – to this date – one of the most fun bimmers one can drive and has quickly risen to an icon status. An M2 Shooting Brake – with all the new tech and more cabin space – could be one of those cars that you don’t need in your garage, but you certainly would do anything to own one.

Shooting Brakes are a thing of the past, it seems. Mercedes seemed to be the only company crazy enough to make one,  but hopefully some car company in the future has the courage to make another one

    Looks more like a true M version of the M135i hatchback.

    Not practical? I have
    a picture of my car (328iT) at the BMW Welt with a nice matching 3 door 120 in
    the background. Both of these cars have
    similar shapes to the red car above (as
    does the newer Sirocco). There may be
    low demand in the US, but Europe would love a car like this. Let me know if you want the picture…
