This Toyota GT86 Shooting Brake concept was built as an exercise in how far the coupe range could be stretched. And Toyota admits it’s a fully functioning, drivable concept. Toyota Japan’s chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada, is quoted as being a fan of the Shooting Brake concept. “While we never say never, and I would love this concept to become a production reality, it is very much a concept that demonstrates the passion within Toyota for cars that are fun to drive.”

Toyota GT86 Shooting brake is a car body style that originated as early as the 19th century. It’s a British term for a vehicle used to carry shooting parties with their equipment and game. The term brake was initially a chassis used to break in horses — and was subsequently used to describe a motorized vehicle. The term was later applied to custom-built wagons by high-end coach builders. It subsequently became synonymous with station wagon or estate. In contemporary usage, the term shooting-brake has broadened to include a range of vehicles from five-door station wagons — to three-door models combining features of a wagon and a coupé.
