Article by Christian A., on April 2, 2014

On April 12, 2014, things will never be the same for Saleen as the company is preparing to enter a new era. Apparently, the company known for tuning muscle cars or for its supercars, will present the renderings for the new Saleen Tesla Model S. It seems that the electric sedan attracts even companies such as Saleen.

If the renderings will be revealed within two weeks, the vehicle first completed Saleen Tesla Model S is expected to be available in early summer. "Some of the mystery will soon be over," stated Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive, Inc. "For those who have wondered what we can do to a car like the Tesla, our renderings will answer many of the questions in the media."

"But until the actual car rolls out of our Corona Campus production facility this summer, the public will have to wait to see the full expression of talent and creativity that we intend to bring to the amazing Tesla Model S," added Saleen.

Currently, the Tesla Model S is offered with three battery options and as expected, each option offers a different range and performance characteristics. The Tesla Model S equipped with the 60 kWh battery offers a range of 370 km (220 miles) at speeds of up to 88 km/h or 55 mph. With a maximum output of 302 hp (225 kW), this model hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.9 seconds and has a maximum speed of 120 mph or 193 km/h.

Moreover, Tesla Model S is offered with a 85 kWh battery, while the range is 300 miles or 482 km, at speeds of up to 88 km/h or 55 mph. With a total output of 362 hp, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) is made in 5.4 seconds, while top speed is limited at 120 mph or 193 km/h. Furthermore, the third battery option is available on the Tesla Model S Performance.

This is the same 85 kWh battery, with the same 300 miles or 482 km range. The peak motor power is 416 hp. This means that the Tesla Model S Performance is able to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.2 seconds, while top speed is limited to 130 mph or 209 km/h.
