Behold...the Tesla Model SD.

It's a retro slick rendering that's not at all practical (no rear window, those ridiculous suicide doors), but it sure does catch our attention.

Despite what must be a coffin-like interior due to how enclosed the Model SD is, we can't help but to be drawn to what's surely the most stylish Tesla rendering we've laid eyes open.

It's old meets new and it's stunning (though the front end might need some minor tweaking).

The renderer (Steel Drake) provides us with some details:

"Now it's time for the car. The world has so many good designers but it doesn't help a lot of auto companies to make their cars better and many cars today look awful. Tesla has the same problem, innovative company without proper design."

"Having experience in industrial design, I’ve discovered one main thing, "Design must be born in 3d environment", sketch is just a vision. A number of designers create amazing sketches, but we often see finished car products different from presented vision at the end, because there is a huge gap between art designers, 3d modellers and engineers, that only few companies can overcome."

"I'm confident that great design can be created only in 3d environment (software), it's like a clay master and his sculpture."

Steel Drake doesn't says why the model name of Model SD was selected, but were rather certain it's linked to the initials (SD) of his name.
