PostHeaderIcon British Shop Creates First Tesla Model S Shooting Brake

For a company that was founded less than 15 years ago, Tesla is definitely doing great things for the auto industry. Its cars are the quickest and most powerful mass-produced EVs you can buy, their range is also segment-leading, while the Supercharger network makes owning and driving one a lot easier. On the flipside, Tesla current lineup is very limited, as it includes only two sedans and an SUV. A two-door sports car and a semi truck are underway, but Elon Musk’s company doesn’t have plans for more utilitarian body styles, such as a station wagon and a pickup truck. But if your dream is to own a Model S with a bigger trunk, the folks over at Qwest Norfolk will get you covered.

“The idea was born when a businessman complained to his engineer friend that his Model S lacks sufficient headroom for his dogs”

Located in Great Britain, Qwest Norfolk is a brand-new shop that turned the Model S into a station wagon/shooting brake model. The guy behind the customized EV says that the idea was born when a businessman complained to his engineer friend that his Model S lacks sufficient headroom for his dogs, due to the fastback-style rear section. “The wish was that Tesla had an Estate, a proper large estate, a shooting brake, that long-lost vehicle format reserved for the annals of history, reminiscing over Volvos and Peugeots of the past long before SUVs and MPVs ruled the planet,” he said in an episode of the “Fully Charged Show.”

Qwest went ahead and redesigned the rear end of the car to add a bigger trunk. The upgrade was developed to fit the Model S’ muscular rear fenders, so the end result is more of a shooting brake rather than a traditional wagon. Qwest bonded a custom carbon-fiber rear body and roof to the standard aluminum shell of the sedan and added three-quarter glass and a tailgate. There’s no word as to how much cargo space was added, but the rear section is definitely tall enough to provide proper headroom for big dogs. More importantly, Tesla approved the modification.

“There's no word as to how much cargo space was added, but the rear section is definitely tall enough to provide proper headroom for big dogs.”

Qwest doesn’t plan to turn this project into a production model, but on the other hand, it didn’t say that it wouldn’t take similar orders. So maybe it’s worth a shot. It’s also worth noting that the Brits created the first ever Model S shooting brake, creating it a few months ahead of the one planned by RemetzCar, a shop located in the Netherlands.

Hopefully, this project will go viral, and Tesla will decide to offer a station wagon at some point.
