Saleen EV sports car will be based on the Tesla Model S

Saleen has released new details about their electric car, that they mentioned first time last month calling it “unlike anything currently in the marketplace”.

The program is not an all-new car from scratch as we thought it would be. Instead the Company will produce for the first time, a Saleen Tesla Model S sports car.

The Saleen Tesla design will be Saleen’s first effort in enhancing an existing electric vehicle.

“Saleen Automotive is intent on continually expanding its presence in the automotive market,” stated Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive, Inc. “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.”

“I fully intend to produce one of the most compelling Tesla’s to ever hit the roadway,” added Saleen.

Details are limited, but renderings will be released as Research and Design continue.
