    On Robert Llewellyn's Fully Charged they had news about a special project of a Model S being chopped up to become an estate / shooting brake:



    They are considering a small series of 25 conversions, so get your check books out!

    Not sure why you'd want to pay a bunch of money to make your car uglier, unserviceable, and unwarrantable, but to each their own.

    Not a home body shop hack job.
    These guys from Lotus and McLaren.
    Surely they are working an arrangement with Tesla.
    Of course, don't assume - verify.
    Might build 25, if they get the orders. listen to video for names/details.

    Model S is already an estate really. Why you would need a slightly more curved back is when you have a giant liftback is completly beyond me. It already fits more than most wagons.

    I didn't say it was, but what does that have to do with my comment? It will still be 1) a ton of money, 2) unserviceable by Tesla, 3) unwarrantable by Tesla, and 4) ugly (granted that's just my opinion). It will probably also be slower.

    hi there, just to respond. It with Tesla's knowledge and understanding we're doing this project. The car warranted, and entirely serviceable. The issues we're engineering are all about future sensors and existing antenna etc as for ugly, that's a personal opinion, slower doubtful, weight savings and aero improvements are not final yet, but they are in the right place. Price? TBC.
    There, happy?

    Agree. Not much more space will be added, and for what?
