Saleen Automotive, Inc., a US specialty manufacturer of high performance vehicles, technical performance parts, lifestyle accessories and apparel, will produce a Saleen Tesla Model S sports car. The Saleen Tesla design will be Saleen’s first effort in enhancing an existing electric vehicle.
Saleen set no release date for completion of the Saleen Tesla Model S, but said it will release renderings as its efforts evolve. Saleen engineers will also prepare a spec sheet which will detail some of the enhancements and innovations the tuner intends to add to the Saleen Tesla Model S.
Saleen Automotive is intent on continually expanding its presence in the automotive market. We have already announced or produced incredible vehicles including Camaros, Challengers, and of course Mustangs, adding style and performance to each of those legendary lines. Now, we turn our attention to the vehicle that has defined the sports car in the rapidly growing electric car sector.
Tesla’s values are not a departure from our core values of elite power, style, and performance. I have admired their craftsmanship. And now with our upcoming entry into the electric car market with a revolutionary design all our own, we share a desire to also produce vehicles that are not dependent on fossil fuels and which accomplish this fuel independence with a tremendous assemblage of grace and technology. I fully intend to produce one of the most compelling Teslas to ever hit the roadway.—Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive
