Saleen releases rendering of tuned Tesla Model S
Tuning house said the first Saleen Model S will be out this summer
CORONA, Calif.—The folks over at Saleen Automotive Inc. have imagined up what a Tesla electric Model S sedan would look like after a trip to their Corona, Calif., speed shop—and it’s as cool as you thought it would be.
The firm teased an artist’s rendering of its Model S mock up this week, and it looks every bit the part that has made Saleen famous.
And the best part is, it expects the first Model S to be introduced to the world this summer.
“I’m exceedingly proud of the work that my design team has done in creating these first images of what I expect to be an exceptional automobile,” chief executive Steve Saleen said in a brief statement.
“We stand on the shoulders of greatness for sure, as we modify the truly inspired design of the Tesla Model S, yet I believe firmly that these images convey my expectation for a vehicle that expands on that heritage and creates something remarkable.
“And as pleased as I am by the aesthetics seen in these renderings, perhaps the true Saleen mark will be best exhibited by the mechanical enhancements that will only be seen as the live vehicle hits the streets this summer.”
The Saleen renderings come just weeks after another California tuner shop announced plans for aftermarket support for the electric sedan.
Tesla owners rejoice.
