Shooting Brakes: The Best, the Worst, and the Confused

I've been doing some thinking lately. Mostly along the lines of which numbers would win the lotto so I wouldn't have to work anymore. This, somewhat surprisingly, does not take up the majority of my week. So I had to find something else to think about. That thing was shooting breaks. There seems to be some confusion… » 2/24/15 2:21pm 2/24/15 2:21pm

The Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake Zagato Is Barely A Shooting Brake

Zagato is turning 95 this year, and like all of us hope to do when we turn 95, they're celebrating by building a one-off Aston Martin shooting brake. As you'd expect, it's pretty stunning — but, I don't think it's Shooting Brake enough. I'll explain. » 9/09/14 4:50pm 9/09/14 4:50pm

Now You Can Own The Most Beautiful Volvo Shooting Brake Ever Made

The traditional shooting brake is one of the most elusive-yet-desirable car platforms in recorded history. This Volvo 1800ES ramps up the want by being perhaps the most elegant example of what can be done when you mix coupe-grade fun with wagon-grade practicality. » 8/23/14 11:21am 8/23/14 11:21am

What Is This Mystery Ford Concept Wagon?

As I've been packing up the near-get-me-institutionalized levels of crap in my house, I occasionally come across something more interesting than a desiccated squirrel carcass or a box of Sega cartridges. This was one of those times — I found a 1963 Ford Book of Styling, and in it, this amazing mystery wagon. » 7/23/14 10:00pm 7/23/14 10:00pm

Holy Crap Scion Might Be Working On A Four Door Shooting Brake FR-S

There is hope after all for Scion if this is true, but you'd better pray hard that this news of a rear-wheel-drive, under $30,000 shooting brake based on the FR-S is legitimate and not just a sick, twisted rumor just to get our hopes up. » 10/11/13 12:05pm 10/11/13 12:05pm

Sexy Mercedes-Benz CLA May Get A Sexy Shooting Brake Version

I have an inappropriate crush on the Mercedes-Benz CLA. I shouldn't like it. It's FWD (with available AWD, of course) and it only comes with an autobox. But it just looks so good inside and out that I can't help myself. Now, word on the street is there's a wagon version on the horizon, causing my lust to grow deeper. » 4/24/13 11:04am 4/24/13 11:04am

Watch the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake Test Mule Do A Massive…

Why is it called a 'Station Wagon'?

The body style we in the US call a "station wagon" seems to have more variants on what to call it than almost any other body style, with manufacturers often using their own idiosyncratic names, much more so than they do for, say, a coupé or a sedan/saloon. But why? » 1/02/12 8:30am 1/02/12 8:30am

Pack your brandy, rifles and breakdown kit in this Jaguar

Call this custom-built, 1989 Jaguar XJS Lynx Eventer an estate, a Nomad or a shooting brake, but whatever you call it, make sure to replace every single electrical connection before you take it on a fox hunt, or else you'll be calling it a flatbed. » 7/07/11 4:00pm 7/07/11 4:00pm

2012 Audi A6 Avant: Aluminum und Kinder

See, it's not that hard. Every time Audi updates its middle-range A6 sedan, it also comes out with a wagon version, offering the same amenities with more aluminum-und-steel hauling. Here's the 2012 edition of the A6 Avant. » 5/18/11 2:45pm 5/18/11 2:45pm

Buy this Maserati Quattroporte station wagon

Before there was the cargo-riffic Ferrari FF, there was the Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio, a coachworks project from Italy's Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Now you can have one, if you fork over €165,000 to a Dutch dealer. Of cars, not weed. » 3/25/11 10:15am 3/25/11 10:15am

The Ferrari FF Has A Sad

Haven’t You Ever Seen a One of Ten Corvette Wagon?

Although Corvettes are the stuff of sports car legend, they are also the frequent recipients of questionable interesting modifications to produce what the factory didn't. This particular example is a unique interpretation of the Corvette wagon that never was. » 1/09/11 2:00pm 1/09/11 2:00pm

For $12,000, this Brazilian VW Lets You Grin and Bare It

A Brazilian can be a resident of that South American country, a nut, or maybe a painful bikini wax. It's also the nationality of today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe VW, but is its price carnival-worthy? » 1/05/11 8:00am 1/05/11 8:00am

What is the Best Looking Station Wagon Ever Made?

Station Wagons are generally designed more for utility then looks. That doesn't mean that some station wagons didn't end up looking pretty excellent. Which station wagon do you think looks the best? » 12/04/10 5:00pm 12/04/10 5:00pm
