Yes, well, wouldn't this be something. We've heard rumors and innuendo concerning the supposed Porsche Cayman Shooting Brake. In many ways, a shooting brake (also properly spelled with a hyphen -- shooting-brake) is the perfect vehicle. Small and light like a sports car, but capable and practical like a station wagon. Combine chocolate with peanut butter and voila! A most excellent product.

Is this for real? Probably not. The first one spotted, the black Cayman Shooting Brake, was most likely a cardboard and tape job hacked together to allow engineers easy access to the engine bay. Maybe Porsche broke down and shoved a much needed turbo (or two) into the Cayman's rump. But hey, maybe, this really is a leaked photo of Porsche's first ever shooting brake (or something from Rinspeed?), and not just an ambitious but ultimately fake Photoshop. Wouldn't that be sweet?

      Still looks like 3D. I wouldn't be surprised if this was some kind of marketing disguise for Forza.

      A few months ago, there were rumors of a steamy relationship between a Porsche Cayman and a BMW 1-Series. Other than providing fodder for the checkout lane gossip rags, nothing was ever proven. The Cayman then disappeared for a few months. This was easily explained by Porsche as a result of the Carpocalypse.

      Now, though, the forbidden Teutonic fruit of the unholy affair between two competitors has been captured in this photo. Dear God, what have they created?

      6 out of 10, must try harder. Not just roof highlight - all the lower surfacing not crisp enough, wheelarch lips especially dodgy and door handle even worse: looks like it's been dipped in chocolate.

      Bad photoshop.

      As ever with these chops, they always use the pre-facelift Cayman rear lights. They're now LED and the clear indicator follows the reshaped bottom of the cluster.

      Its obviously fake, but considering Porsche design, i wouldn't put it past them creating something this ugly...

      This looks like the Jaguar hearse from "Harold and Maude."

      interesting but, how do you see out the rear window?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Another clue to the fakeness: no B-pillars. The "normal" Caymen has them, and the idea that a station wagon version would ALSO be a pillarless hardtop is rather absurd.

      This in addition to the unconvincing roof line, the muddy and blurry window surrounds, and the various curves that somehow have bumps in them.

      Anyone that has ever used photoshop for more than 5 seconds can tell that this is fake. Look at the rear quarter panel reflections. Who ever made this clearly did not spend a whole lot of time on it and it shows.
