Ogle this Tesla Model S shooting brake

Beautifully converted EV will be on display at Geneva

We know what you’re going to say, Internet, so don’t try it. You saw the headline and the pictures and immediately wanted to shout about how, because the Tesla Model S has four doors, this can’t be called a shooting-brake.

Well, the times they are a-changing. A coupe-like roofline does not make a traditional estate car, and London-based company Niels van Roij Design calls their creation a shooting brake – so we will too.

We first brought you news of this project back in December 2017 but the manufacturing side of things was supposed to be handled by the now defunct RemetzCar company in the Netherlands – so a planned production run of 20 never came to fruition.

Still, just look at it. Cleverly called the Model SB (get it – shooting brake), the modifications include that new sweeping tailgate with a beautiful creased rear spoiler wrapping around the back of the car.

In a similar vein to the Qwest effort that we saw last year, the high shoulders that are such a feature of the standard Model S have also been retained. However, with a far more sculpted roofline and the addition of some chrome trim the Model SB looks like a truly premium product.

Elsewhere, the shooting brake has been given a new British Racing Green overcoat – which is matched by the glovebox lining inside. Lovely stuff.

Like it? Check out the rather arty shots above and let us know what you think in the comments. And if you want to see it in the flesh it’ll be at Geneva in early March.
