I loved the BMW Z3 shoe also, and this would be pretty cool. I'd be all for it.

Well, not every car... Some came with big blocks.

But other than that, he's right!

Sign me up! It'd be a little heavier than the coupe, but the weight would be in the right place (the back), and it would be a lot more practical.

Sadly, even if they did make it, we'd never see it in the US, just like the 1-series hatch.

Yes . The front/rear weight distro would be a little closer to 50/50.

I love hatches and the 1-series 135i hatch is probably one of the best performing hatch out there. But, I just can't get over its taillights.
Actually, the entire rear end is just too bland .
I think that's what would deter people here in the U.S. more than the fact that it's a hatch.

I would strongly consider a shooting-brake version of the BRZ. The biggest mistake they made with that project was not giving it a hatch and instead saddling it with a tiny, useless trunk. The world is far too devoid of fastback hatches along the lines of the AE86 and 180SX.

Both the BRZ and EVO X are rated at 6.9 cubic feet... and the BRZ's seats fold down where the EVO's do not.
