While the term shooting brake was conceived in the early 1900s, its meaning is fairly defined in today’s automotive industry. In the most basic sense, the term references a station wagon but one that is sharply tuned. Porsche, the manufacture of many, may be considering giving birth to their very first example and it more than likely would be based on the Panamera. Given that the automaker is no longer solely associated with two door sports cars, the chances of a Porsche station wagon hitting the future market seem rather high.
According to Car and Driver Magazine, the vehicle will make its debut at this year’s Paris Auto Show. Whatever it is, it will not be a part of the 2014 facelift that has already been confirmed. Instead, the shooting brake would be included in the generation change that is scheduled for three years in the future. Jaguar is already in line to produce a XF station wagon while the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon have been successfully hauling butt and groceries for a few years now. Whether or not Porsche goes through with the car is still a mystery but the chances are high that a razor-sharp, dog-carrying twin turbo all wheel drive monster is on its way.
