Company Expects First Model To Be Ready By This Summer
Performance tuner Saleen has been dropping hints for the past few months about a high-performance Tesla Model S. Well, the company has released some renderings that give us a sneak peek into what the company has in store.
The renderings show off a new body kit that includes a front bumper with dual air dams, carbon fiber lip spoiler, side skirts, trunk-mounted spoiler, and an air diffuser. Inside is gray leather and Alcantara upholstery.
"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," stated Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive. "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."
Saleen didn't release any details on what changes have been made to Model S' powertrain. That information will likely be revealed towards the launch of the first model, which is expected the summer of 2014.
