Xenatech conversions – Click above for image gallery

Wonder where this firm Xenatech came from? The German company made headlines a couple of weeks ago with sketches of a Maybach coupe it intends to bring to market, but as you may well have guessed, the luxo-Merc isn't the first chop job the company has undertaken.

Swing by the company's website and you'll find photochops of all manner of vehicles – most of them German, natch – that have been turned from sedan into coupe, coupe into sedan, and much more. The first few look like simple stretch jobs of sport-utes and sedans like the Audi Q7, Mercedes G-Class and Bentley Continental Flying Spur. But delve a little deeper and you'll find an Aston Vanquish shooting brake, Lexus LS460 coupe and pickup versions of the Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg. A few of them are even a little prophetic: a Mercedes CLS wagon and four-door versions of the Porsche 911 and BMW 6 Series.

The best part is that Xenatech claims some of these have actually been made, though it isn't saying which. Our fingers are crossed for that 7 Series with the extra headroom. Check out some of our favorites in the gallery below.

      That four door 911 is what the Panamera should have been.

      I agree with phooky, that 4 door 911 is way better looking than the panamera in my opinion

      I really like the way that 6 series looks as a sedan, it almost looks like that is what the 6 series should be.

      SO this is basically A M5 then............

      yuck, yuck, yuck, and yuck. how about they post photos of the cars they've built because this is flagrant astroturfing.

      Yikes. Not to be a downer, but these "renderings" look terrible in both subject matter and execution.

      Apparently nothing is happening in the automotive world today.

      those all just look like crappy photoshop jobs
        • 4 Years Ago
        Exactly--Xenatech is apparently a 12 year old sitting at the basement computer in Cleveland.

        the aston is terrible. you can see the straight line in the driver door where they cut in.
        If their real work is as bad as their photoslopping, I wouldnt trust them with an old Taurus SHO, much less a Porsche, BMW, or Maybach

        @geo.stewart:

        Actually that line is there on the normal Vanquish.

        Whether it's a shooting brake or a shooting break, it is awesome.

      I never thought I'd say this, but of all the trashy designs beheld by that gallery, I actually like the Lexus coupe the best...that's scary.

      Acchh!! Mein Gott in Himmel! That Aston image is quite bad. Not only is there a visible seam where the two images were put together, but the perspective, the angle of the door panel doesn't really match the rest of the vehicle.

      And what's with that BMW with the bubble top, clown car-style passenger cabin?

      Yecch...

      The 7 series is real, I saw it in Kuwait.. And man was it ugly! I remember googling "BMW 7 series bubble edition" trying to find any clue what that was!

      "wtf is that 7-series with that higher roof, so you can stand upright while driving?"

      couldn't stop laughing
