Hmm... not quite sure what to think of that one... good drawing no doubt... and I like some aspects of the car... but as a whole, I don't think I'd go and spend my money on it...

The long swoopy belt-line unfortunately reminds me of the Nissan Quest!! Ick. . . we all know you can do better, TorRed.
Too much hood. . .it just feels way too long for a 2+2 coupe. . .
It is "too long" because it's an estate or a 3-door wagon and the swoopy belt-line is ment to bring your eye back towards the bulging rear quarters. I thought people might know what a "Shooting Brake" is but I guess not. Here's an explanation:
The woodies of the British Isles were the product of an aristocratic culture. Just as road-going motorized transport was first adopted by the only people who could afford such extravagance, the wealthy land owner was among the first to press the motor car into sporting use, Originally, a 'brake' was a sturdy horse-drawn wagon meant for off-road use. The wooden bodied estate car met the need for carrying capacity with the prerequisite impression of affluence. What vehicle could better serve the lords of the realm while participating in the social ritual of hunting? Bespoke craftsmanship merged with the heady rush of mechanized mobility.

Here you got my points of view:
The front reminds me your Pontiac Bonneville contest design a lot (even the headlamps) and becuase of it, I like the sedan much more.
But after all, I ll take one of these on white but without the rear wing. j/k
I want to ask you: Dont you are some undercover GM car designer?
Your work look always so fine executed that I belive that you could easily be a true professional!

i like this alot, i think that it could really fit saturn, my only problem with it is the name
I like it. A Shooting Brake is what 2 door wagons are called in Britain, although I don't know if that name would work in California. J/K. Nice design, even has the "Saturn Swoosh" on the side. Cool.
well, shoot. i had one of those up my sleeves, too... it won't be as well drawn, tho.
I like; both the car and the historical aspects of the name. Albeit I think the shooting break nomenclature would be better suited for the Vauxhall brand; it typically seems to appear on (higher end) British cars.
Food for thought: would the old Nomads and Safari Chiefs be considered American shooting breaks?
Yes they would! Yep, the name's a bit "upper crust" but this is just a fantasy.
who cares about the name when youve got **************** gorgous car right in front of you
I could swear I've seen you post that one before.
mmmmm...?????? aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh , yes, yes, yes... do you know how much i love right?
