If this was still a 2 seater with the rear space entirely comprising of boot storage space, this would be an absolute diamond of a car.

Totally agree. Just a generic BM 3 door estate. A nice looking one admittedly.
I don't like the use of the words "shooting brake" either. That was an English phrase, as said above, for bespoke coachworks built vehicles for the upper classes for shooting parties. "Ze Germans" seem to have ripped off this phrase.

Yes, maybe they should use 'invasion barge' or something :roll:

Love the Z4 rendering, love it. The shooting brake started life as an aristocratic hunting car. I remember this from when I was a child. We didn't have kids in those days, kids were young goats. :D
