The Tesla Model S has a surprising amount of cargo capacity. If you need more, you need look no further than the Model X crossover. But if what you really wanted was a Model S wagon, you’re in luck. Because one such creation is ready for its big debut.
“The idea was to translate my Tesla Model S into a dynamic and sporty yet elegant Shooting Brake, rather than creating a car with maximum luggage space,” said de Raadt. “Niels van Roij Design developed several options for the conversion, focusing on premium design combined with limited conversion costs: thus making coach building available for a larger group of connoisseurs.”
The same outfit that built a hearse based on the same, RemetzCar kept the core structure of the electric sedan in tact, right down to the crumple zones. But it developed a new tailgate, with a rear spoiler and hidden wiper and brake light. It also fitted a bold strip of chrome to make it look that much sportier. And it painted this first example in a gold-flecked green.
This won’t be the only example it will make, though. Following its debut next month at the International Concours d’Élégance Paleis Het Loo in the Netherlands, RemetzCar will build as many as 20 units. That is, assuming enough customers step forward with cash in hand.
