Default Look what they did to Porsche 911!

It's called Porsche 911 "shooting brake" made by protostar. This version will be shown at the Geneva Auto show. Read about it in detail here provided you like the picture below. All i can say is this shooting brake is a lesson on how to murder a fantastic car. Wonder what they are upto and what they are trying to achieve here

If this is crazy... take a look at this... something done about three years ago by a firm called Rinspeed. Called the Bedouin.

Shooting brakes are very rare version made of supercars that look like a station wagons. Infact they sell for much more price than the normal sportcar if I am not wrong.

ps: That Porsche reminds me of the Renault Megane!!
