Ford Mustang Fox Body Shooting Brake Adds Some Utility To The Classic Pony Car

The Ford Mustang Fox Body is a beloved classic at this point, as hard as that might be to imagine for those of us that grew up driving it in the 1980s and 1990s. But enthusiasts still love the Fox platform and everything it has to offer, along with its rather unconventional looks compared to other generations of Ford’s legendary pony car. This Mustang Fox Body shooting brake rendering from an artist name Jim takes that style to a completely different level, however.

While the term “shooting brake” itself sounds cool, it’s essentially just a name used to describe a station wagon, albeit one with more of a coupe-like sloping roofline. Throughout history, we’ve seen some pretty cool and sporty shooting brakes emerge mostly from German automakers like BMW and Audi, but the treatment also looks pretty cool on this Mustang Fox Body shooting brake, we must say.

This particular rendering is based on a red GT hatchback, the latter part of which Jim simply extended all the way to the rear of the car. Thus, the end result doesn’t look too outlandish or extreme, as many of these imaginative renderings often do. Instead, it carries a natural appearance that lends itself quite well to the Fox Body’s lines, which culminates with a subtle roof spoiler out back.

We’re certain that some folks will hate this idea and call it all sorts of names, as they often do when people mess with Ford’s beloved pony car in any way. But while station wagons developed a bad reputation for being boring family haulers long ago, there are cool wagons and shooting brakes out there in the world that offer both performance and utility – just take the new Audi A6 Avant, for example. So to that, we say, why not make a Mustang shooting brake, too?

We’ll have more cool renderings to share soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Mustang news and non-stop Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Sure, why not. For those looking for a bit more utility…remember the Fox’s were hatchbacks to start so there was already a fair amount of utility built in. I can remember hauling a Scandinavian designed rocking chair back from DC to Pittsburgh in our ’85! My wife said while at the store, “it’ll never fit!”. I said, “sure it will.” Fit perfectly with the back seats folded down.

      I totally agree, my brother got a pair of 93 Mustang Cobras from his mother N law for a wedding gift his and hers. The hatch could carry way more than the Ponies with trunks. It’s another way of growing the brand Coupe, Convertible , Wagon and sedan

    I have never understood the appeal of Shooting Brake versions of sports cars.
    You like to make your sporty car look fugly?

      That it is strange or ugly is the fault of the person who photo chopped it. A Mustang shooting brake is far more desirable than a Mach E crossover SUV with Mustang styling cues.

    Actually, I like it! Well done Jim!

  4. Lee Glidewell

    Y’all are completely missing the fact that this ain’t even REAL! It’s just a RENDERING from some bored ‘artist(?)s’ nightmare. Who freakin’ cares?
    Yeah, it’s fugly, too. Remember the disposable Chevy Vega? Those WERE REAL, as well as fugly.

      We get it – you don’t like renderings. Some people do.

    2. Roy Chile’s

      Chevy Vega’s was all over the place in the 70’s and 80’s
