Saleen Work on New S8 Supercar

Just a couple days after revealing that a brand new American supercar was in the works dubbed the S8, Saleen has confirmed it is also working on creating a new electric car!
“We intend to enter this market with an offering that is truly innovative and offers the styling and craftsmanship associated with the Saleen Automotive brand. The rapid pace of advancements in electric vehicle technology makes our entry into this market sector timely and should expedite completion of this project.”
Saleen also revealed that this Saleen electric car will force the public to “throw out your pre-conceived notions and expectations. This vehicle will be revolutionary in its aesthetics and mechanics”T
he last we heard of a supercar from Saleen was the S5S Raptor that made its grand entrance at the 2008 New York Auto Show, but that seemed to get lost in the shuffle when Saleen, Inc. was sold off in 2009. At that point, Saleen had already moved on to form SMS Supercars, but after reacquiring the Saleen name and brand last year, it would appear the supercar is definitely back on the table.
