The advent of photo manipulation programs like Adobe Photoshop have ushered in an era where its quite often hard to distinguish between fact and fiction-- sheet metal and pixelated musings of digital airbrush artists. For some publications, it's even an opportunity to fudge spy shots into convincing 'artist's renderings' purporting to represent future models. But for others like André Schaefer of CWW Designs, it's an automotive art that allows one's creative juices to flow, if only to create a virtual dream garage.

The Chevrolet Caprice Estate seen above is but one example of Schaefer's work. The Koln, Germany based artist has a whole library of virtual vehicles based on production models, 'blue sky' future concepts and vintage classics.

As Schaefer has been on the photo manipulation scene for quite some time now, Autoblog readers may have already seen some of his handiwork, but as he's constantly adding new designs, the CWW website is absolutely worth a second look.

      Great car, please just don't call it a Caprice. The name alone might stop me from buying it.

      Well, I would be waiting in line with check book iun had to try out any of those incredible wagons. The design concepts are stunning. This guy needs to go work for GM.

      GM will never do the Caprice Estate now that an outsider has shown the way - corporate ego and all. Too bad, its' a gorgeous car and exactly what I am lookin' for in my next car.

      Clinton,
      I agree, a sedan and wagon with more of Chevy's global face, GM is using now, might not be a bad idea.

      My favorite of his was the 300C Coupe. What a stunner.

      Oddly, the Aston is similar in ways to the Porsche Cayenne, but about 100 times more attractive.

      I'd also like to see the Caprice, and we might well have seen something like this (hopefully with IRS for decent packaging) if the Magnum were selling well. But ever since the Charger became available Magnum sales have been poor. I doubt Chrysler will replace it.

      The artist definitely seems to have a thing for wagons...

      Wow, with 1 or 2 exceptions, every one of these cars does a GREAT job of incorporating design elements of each manufacturer's "corporate face" so that you can immediately identify who "builds" what.
      Unfortunately, The Pontiac wagon also looks ALOT like Dodge wagons from the mid '70s, right down to the unframed wood panelling. Look at a mid or full size Dodge wagon from about '68 or '69 onwards, to see what I mean.
      The Lexus coupe is what they should have built, instead of that stupid, turtle-looking SC430.
      And I must disagree with everyone else, I don't care for a Caprice wagon that "steals" the Camaro's look. It dilutes the sportier car's appeal.

      That range rover sedan above reminds me of the mid 80's Honda Civic (also the Rover 216 in UK).

      I think the american ones look like crap!

      And I love the new Camaro & Challenger.

      The Euro's look better, maybe because I am used to seeing Wagons from them, so its not a stretch.

      Really nice work. Not only does he use the manufacturer's design elements but he uses historical designs as well. The Land Rover sedan I've seen somewhere, based on a 70's Range Rover. Somewhere...

      Did you know he is a part time musician, too?
