Already, in a short amount of time, there was lots of positive feedback.

Saleen is an American company that specializes in high performance vehicles such as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, & now the Tesla Model S.
Saleen adds its own unique style and performance to vehicles that is unlike any other.
“The Company previously announced its intention to produce a Saleen Tesla Model S electric vehicle and now with initial Research and Design progressed to a level that allows for the release of a rendering, the Company is prepared to show its vision for a Saleen version of the acclaimed Tesla.”
No specs or pricing is available yet for the Saleen Tesla Model S. The first Saleen Tesla Model S is expected to be complete in early summer of 2014. For now, all that's available is this lone rendering.
Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive, stated:
“Saleen Automotive is intent on continually expanding its presence in the automotive market. 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. 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.”
