You’ve seen the vehicle before and you probably either love or hate it. The vehicle was commissioned by a man named Floris de Raadt, who apparently has a love for electric vehicles and Shooting Brakes. While it was originally intended to be a one-off, RemetzCar announced that it will build 20 examples more for other buyers.
However, the company is now defunct and the car actually will not be put into production. We doubt de Raadt cares, as he now owns the only Model S Shooting Brake anywhere in the world.
From what images of the vehicle suggest, it looks to be a premium product up to the standards of a large car manufacturer. The presence of four doors somewhat undermines its title as a ‘Shooting Brake’ (normally, they are two-door), but the sleek and aggressive roofline and rear window make for a very interesting design so we’ll give it a pass.
De Raadt actually got the idea for the Tesla Model S Shooting Brake by the Model S hearse which RemetzCar created towards the end of 2016. That vehicle was really an abomination in terms of style, though we’re glad it got De Raadt thinking and led to the creation of the Shooting Brake.
It’s unclear how much converting the Model S sedan into a Shooting Brake set back its owner, but you can bet it won’t be cheap. Seeing a few other examples of the car rolling around might have been cool, but since the company has gone under, this will be a one of a kind – unless, that is, someone else decides to pick up the mantle.
Come to think of it, Porsche is going to build a Sport Turismo version of its upcoming Taycan electric sedan. Maybe that, and this bespoke Model S, will give Elon Musk something to think about.
