Late last year, UK firm Qwest Norfolk completed a stylish rework of the back end of a Tesla Model S P90D to transform the electric car into a shooting brake – in order to accommodate a canine companion called Ted. Now Dutch firm RemetzCar has also attacked the rear of a Model S for the first of 20 electric shooting brakes.

The shooting brake build is not the first time RemetzCar has converted a Model S, the company had previously reworked the Tesla sedan into a quiet and stylish electric funeral transporter it called the Model S Hearse. In October 2017, a new project was announced.

The build was commissioned by shooting brake and electric car enthusiast Floris de Raadt, who had seen the Hearse model and asked if a custom electric shooting brake could be developed. The overall design came from London-based Niels van Roij. "The conversion merges seamlessly with the Tesla base vehicle, whilst clearly communicating though form, design language and materials that this is a tailor-made Shooting Brake," said Roij.

The core of the Model S was left pretty much untouched, with the redesign concentrating on the rear. RemetzCar fashioned aluminum body panels, a new C-pillar, and fitted a completely new tailgate, with rear spoiler, hidden wiper and brake light. A chrome trim was also added, which runs from the A pillars along the roofline and around the panoramic roof. The final touch was to give the electric shooting brake a new paint job, a "green metallic with a twist of gold gives the Model SB an elegant yet striking appearance."

The RemetzCar Model S Shooting Brake will make its public debut at the International Concours d'Élégance Paleis Het Loo in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, on June 29, ahead of a tour through Europe. A series run of 20 models is planned. There are more images in the gallery.

Too bad, they didn't fix the ugly front of the car! Better than Qwest's job though

4 doors means it is an Estate or Station Wagon and not a Shooting Brake, but it looks brilliant.

Sleek and stylish, but not pretty. Well done, folks. The green metallic paint is just gorgeous. I love that electric hearse, ushering out the gas guzzlers. ;)
