Watch Tesla Model S Shooting Brake In Action

OCT 13 2018 BY MARK KANE 19

It looks stunning and remains quick.

The RemetzCar’s Tesla Model S Shooting Brake, designed by London-based Niels van Roij Design, that was unveiled in June, was recently presented at Supercar Sunday in the Netherlands for the public.

The car did some track laps and drag races, proving that not only does it still look stylish after modification, but also remains quick.

There is currently just one single unit of this Tesla conversion, but we believe that at a price they will sell you one of 20 planned for production.

The video comes from Lars Mars Cars:

“RemetzCar did all the bodywork on this Tesla, which originally was a standard Model S sedan. They completely rebuilt the rear end, as well as parts of the roof. The chrome side window frames are 100% handcrafted. Quite impressive, if you ask me!”

I’m not convinced that this station wagon version of Model S is stylish. I also wonder how the modifications impact the aerodynamics of the car.

It should improve it. But need wind tunnel testing to confirm.

I doubt it. Sedans are generally more aerodynamic than hatchbacks.

Coach builds really aren’t into that kind if detail. It would be up to Tesla to prove if a shooting brake is more aerodynamic.

Lets take these 3 models.
Chevy Suburban
Chevy Trax
Chevy Cruze hatchback (actually more a wagon).

Which 2 models are very close in size, features like chassis, resemblance.
Chevy Suburban is clearly an SUV.
Chevy Trax is called an SUV by some and Crossover by some.

Chevy Trax shares the same chassis, engine with Cruze hatch. If you think that Trax is beautiful, then you have to accept that Cruze hatch is also beautiful.

Automakers are just raising the height of wagon by few inches, calling it a SUV and selling it well.

How is a station wagon stylish?

Move out of the US and your opinion might change 😉

Doubt it. People buy them because they are practical, not because they are stylish…

Has some of the styling elegance of a Jag, and Jag wagon.

Very classy look, and far better driving experience than an SUV.
Also, better aerodynamics than an SUV.

You have the space for hunting and camping, without the negatives of an SUV, high-unstable position where bumps and car sway are magnified the higher you’re off the ground, like an inverse pendulum.

I’d really like Tesla to offer a Model 3 wagon.
An AWD Electric Wagon is the best of all worlds.
I’d buy.

A station wagon is just a shorter version of SUV / Crossover / Van with the same 5 doors.
If it has truck chassis then its SUV
If it has unibody frame and is slightly taller, then its Crossover
If it has sliding doors, then its a Van.
If it has unibody frame and is shorter, then its Wagon.

That’s it.
If SUV is beautiful then wagon is also beautiful.

By “shorter”, you mean less height?…

Its stylish, spacious and functional. The passengers in the 3rd row seat will feel more comfortable than in the current sportback version.
Ideally Tesla should hire that designer and his company and start designing this version.
Don’t call it Wagon or Shooting Brake. Give a different name since its capacity is lot more. Something like Model-U / Model-V or Model-F where F is for functional.

This will compete with wagon version of Benz S Series Estate.

Does Marry Barra read this blog?
This is how you DOUBLE Volt Sales. Look at the roof line, gives increased rear seat headroom, and sufficient trunk space that a Volt could be used as a business delivery vehicle.
But, the goal was never to sell more than 30,000 Volts.
A Volt Wagon will never get built.

For someone that makes 20 million dollars a year, she’s not really getting GM to compete effectively in the EV market.

It looks like the chrome on the back doesn’t line up with the chrome on the rear doors. It’s worse on the right side than the left, but both have that issue.

So rare.. that here is another one, albeit from Qwest, a British coach-building company qwestnorfolk. co. uk

Did it actually win that race? Tesla S’s typically win by wider margins.

The stainless C band is different and the overall look seperates it from every other plus there should be a bit more interior space, hope they build lots of them, the perfect grocery getter without the SUV look.

That would kill all others in Europe.

Looks like they are out of business. http://www.remetzcar.nl/home.php
