Saleen may have built its reputation on tuning the most iconic American cars like the Chevrolet Camaro , Ford Mustang , and Dodge Challenger , but company front-man Steve Saleen seems bent on making his mark in the budding performance electric car category as well.
Rumors have circulated for more than a year regarding Saleen’s entrance into the category, with TopSpeed’s own firsthand confirmation coming from Steve himself in a late-2013 interview.
Well the rumors and speculation can all be put to rest as the company debuts the Saleen Tesla Model S Foursixteen at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance . This Tesla Model S receives a bespoke exterior design, interior updates, and of course, increases in power and performance.
Thankfully this isn’t some one-off show car, but rather a pre-production example of what will be publicly available to those looking for extra spice in their Model S. The performance upgrades include a sport-tuned suspension, bigger brakes, upgraded rear differential, and more aggressive aerodynamic surfaces.
