Look Out Ford – Model S Ute is a Tesla That’s Actually Attractive

By -


If there’s anything I’ve learned from the Internet in the past three years, it’s that about 95 percent of cars will look better or cooler as utes or shooting brakes/wagons. Digital artists caught on to the fact that everybody (and by everybody, I mean the motoring press) loves those body styles to an obsessive level.

Ugly cars suddenly strike a chord if they get that bed or wagon for a boot. The Tesla Model S is no different.


Some people might disagree, but I think the Model S is ugly. The parts that do look good were swiped from other cars that already come in better-looking packages.

As a ute, however, it actually looks pretty neat. The sketch comes from Rain Prisk, who has also cooked up creations like the snowmobile Huracan shooting brake and the utility McLaren 570S.


The idea of a Tesla pickup, not necessarily in ute form, isn’t completely out of the realm of possibility.

There have been rumors floating around for a couple years already, but Tesla Vice President Diarmuid O’Connell recently made it clear that he thinks Tesla will need to build a truck down the road in order to maintain success. For now, though, we’ll just have to appreciate the renderings.
