Toyota's GT86 Shooting Brake concept is wildly fun, will never be built (pictures)

With a silhouette borrowed from the Ferrari Breadvan (we think), Toyota's radical concept has about as much chance of existing as Santa or the Easter Bunny.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Much like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expected this.

It's exactly the same as your average GT86 (née Scion FR-S), but with that ridiculous shooting brake rear end.

A shooting brake, in modern parlance, relates to a coupe that takes on wagon-like features.

If this had two more doors, it'd be a wagon, but it's technically a shooting brake.

Not that it matters, because this car will never exist.

The GT86's chief engineer said that, while he'd love to see it exist, it probably won't.

And that makes sense, because who exactly is in the market for a coupe with extra rear space and two rear seats that are still useless for grown humans?

While we'd love to throw this thing around a track, we're also cool just letting it exist as a piece of neat thinking that will never see the light of day.

Although if you ask Toyota extra nicely, and approach them with several briefcases filled with cash, you never know what might happen.
