It was only a matter of time until Tesla collaborated with a tuning company to work on the groundbreaking Model S, and it looks like Saleen will be the company to take on the job.

Tesla announced in a Jan. 30 press release that Saleen Automotive will be taking on the task of creating a Saleen Tesla Model S sports car. The tuning company is known for their collaborations with Ford and for their Saleen S7 model, but it looks like they are spreading their reach to the California-based electric vehicle manufacturer.

“Saleen Automotive is intent on continually expanding its presence in the automotive market,” stated Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive, Inc., in the press release. “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.”

A release date for the new electric Saleen is unknown, but Tesla assures us that renderings will be released as development continues. They also go on to say that the engineers will soon provide a spec sheet that will detail the enhancements that come along with the Saleen Model S.

“I fully intend to produce one of the most compelling Teslas to ever hit the roadway,” added Saleen.
