High-performance wagons are easy to appreciate. Plenty of utility, but none of the sacrifices that practicality usually implies.
If they look great and run on electricity, like Theophilus Chin's render of a Tesla Model 'ST', then all the better.
Chin's render (via Autoblog Green) is so slick you'd think it came from Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] itself.
The long, elegant body of the regular Model S lends itself to the wagon shape, and the end result isn't dissimilar from the recent Jaguar XF Sportbrake, one of the best-looking wagons on the road.
In fact, we've a nagging feeling it looks even better than the regular Model S. There's little doubt it'd add to that car's practicality too, perhaps enough to swap the two small booster seats for a full rear bench.
The Model S's wind-cheating aerodynamics might suffer, and we'd expect a weight increase too--but it'd be a small price to pay for such an elegant "sport tourer".

It's unlikely to see the light of day, though--Tesla already has a larger seven-seat vehicle on the way, in the shape of the falcon-winged Model X crossover.
