Saleen Automotive, an American specialty manufacturer of high performance vehicles, has announced their electric car project will be based on a Tesla Model S electric sedan.
The Saleen Tesla Model S will be Saleen’s first effort in enhancing an existing electric vehicle.
No release date has been set for completion of the Saleen Tesla Model S, but renderings will be released as research and design continue. Saleen said that its engineers will also come up with a spec sheet detailing some of the enhancements and innovations that the company plans to add in the Tesla Model S.
“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.”
“Tesla’s values are not a departure from our core values of elite power, style, and performance. I have admired their craftsmanship,” added Saleen. “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 Tesla’s to ever hit the roadway,” added Saleen.
