Saleen Automotive’s offerings are traditionally gasoline-driven and they are fast. The company is well-known in automotive circles for its stylish and performance-oriented versions of noted sports cars like Ford Mustangs, Chevy Camaros, and Dodge Challengers. Now Saleen is turning attention to high-performance in the electrified world with a new effort involving Tesla’s Model S.
Company CEO Steve Saleen says this latest focus on the Tesla Model S is not a departure from Saleen Automotive’s own core values of elite power, style, and performance. Rather, he feels the Model S epitomizes the sports car of the electric vehicle field, which of course would make it a natural for the company. Saleen says they are working on renderings and engineers are preparing a spec sheet that will detail some of the enhancements and innovations that Saleen Automotive aims to add to the Saleen Tesla Model S.
