“The Model S is one of the nicest-looking cars on the road, but it has FOUR doors – that precludes it from being ‘sporty’ in my book.”

RK unofficial Tesla S Coupe

Kelowna resident Rick Kelly thinks Tesla has missed the boat with its Model S design, so he’s created his own sporty coupe version of the electric car.

Well, actually the car-loving artist has created a digital version of what he calls a Model S 2+2-coupe concept.

Kelly explains:

“The only ‘sporty’ electric vehicle on the market right now is the BMW i8 – I’ve seen one here in Kelowna and it is spectacular, albeit out of most people’s price range ($145,000). Tesla has the performance in its electric Model S to be entertaining as a driver’s car. The Model S is one of the nicest-looking cars on the road, but it has FOUR doors – that precludes it from being ‘sporty’ in my book.”

You can check out Kelly’s other creations at his website: http://automotiveart.shawwebspace.ca, his blog at http://digital-automotive-art.blogspot.ca and even has a fun iBook called Digital Automotive Art on iTunes.

What do you think about Kelly’s digital re-creation of the $114,700 Tesla?
