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