The Saleen S7 is a mystifying car, a $375,000 American mid-engine supercar that sprung up out of nowhere in the year 2000. But what if it wasn’t exactly nowhere? Acting on a tip, I spent months trying to figure out the S7’s true origins. And I’m still not sure what to think.
The Saleen S7 is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most gorgeous cars of the last 25 years. Maybe even last 50. It sounds ridiculously perfect, too. And now’s your chance to own all of it. Yes, all of it. Up for sale now are all remaining inventory, parts, memorabilia, molds, designs and intellectual property…
Saleen Automotive, purveyor of modified Mustangs, super-gorgeous supercars and various other machinations over the years, has been in financial trouble for some time. This isn’t exactly new information. But now Saleen is suing someone for saying that there are worse things going on — possibly even illegal financial…
Ladies and gentlemen, the “Pinnacle Portfolio” is the largest and most valuable single-owner collection to ever be presented at auction. No kidding!
Saleen calls it a “game changer.” It’s the most powerful production(-based) Mustang ever created. And the tuner says that if I don’t write about the 302 Black Label, I have no journalistic integrity. And if I don’t drive it, I’m hiding in a hole next to… Saddam Hussein? Okay, then.
Saleen Automotive, creator of crazy Mustangs and the gorgeous Saleen S7 supercar, is in a bad way. According to its own quarterly earnings report the company is getting sued by its bank, it owes its law firm money, it's resorted to paying contractors in stock, it's looking for a buyer, and, as of September 30th, 2014,…
Saleen's been one of everyone's favorite Mustang-modifiers for years, and we now know all the juicy numbers for the 2015 S302, and have a nice view of it from the side. The big news is that in supercharged form, the S302 will put out a very healthy 640 HP — that's about one BRZ more HP than a stock 2015 Mustang.
The Saleen FourSixteen is faster and louder than any Tesla Model S you've seen before. Smoking BMWs is only the beginning, Steve Saleen also added cup holders and a price tag starting at $152,000 (minus rebates).
Steve Saleen chats with Monster CEO Noel Lee on the Concept Lawn at Pebble Beach. Yes, Lee is on a Segway. With flames. And gold wheels.
Saleen snagged a spot on the Concept Car lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this Sunday, where it will finally debut its modified Model S. And now it has a name.
Saleen is calling it "the next American exotic". That's a stretch. But based on this first teaser of the 2015 302 Mustang, Saleen is headed in the right direction.
For reasons I don't entirely understand, there was a GTA WM Saleen Super S7 at the Beijing Auto Show. Is Saleen still selling S7s there or this just a dealer? Photo: Getty Images.
For years, Saleen has been in the business of helping various Ford Mustangs and other cars be all they that can be through extensive tuning. A few months ago we heard they would start adding electric cars to their repertoire starting with the Tesla Model S. Now we know what it will look like.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The Saleen S7 is in the pantheon of the prettiest cars ever made, and is certainly among the tops of the modern era. Sure, it might not have drove that well, but as a piece of art it was a delicate beauty.
Remember when Saleen said it was going to make an electric car? The same Saleen that is really known for really fast Mustangs? We assumed it would be based on a Ford Focus Electric. Instead, it's going to be based off of a Tesla Model S. It's good to be wrong.
In today's crowded automotive landscape, you'd be excused for not having a Saleen Mustang anywhere on your radar – it's 2013, after all. The little California company has had a rough go of things in the last few years, including insolvency. But things are on the up, and after supercharging some more muscle cars,…
Saleen is starting up a Heritage Collection with the George Follmer edition Mustang, named after a successful road racer from the 1970s. George Follmer was known for his appearances in Formula One, Can-Am, and Le Mans, so this car should basically be like the cars from that type of racing, right?
Five years after getting forced out of, er, retiring from the company he founded, Steve Saleen announced last year that he was back in the outrageous tuner car game. That's good news for people who like their Mustangs really orange and ridiculously overpowered, like this: the Saleen 351.
