2015 Tesla Model S Saleen Review

Just recently we were able to see announcement about the cabriolet version of Tesla Model S but this is not all. The 2015 Tesla Model S Saleen edition is the second version that has been announced and is based on highly popular Model S electric vehicle.

Already for some time we were able to hear rumors and announcements from Saleen that they will delivered modified version of one of the most popular electric vehicles on the market. Tuning level is still not known but finally we are getting few images of what could be offered. Even these are only renderings it is obvious that there could be some interesting changes to the original vehicle.

From the start this vehicle always offered really good performances especially in the case of Performance edition that is delivered with electric motor of more than 400 hp and 85 kWh battery pack. Saleen has promised that performances will be also affected and that it will come with even better figures. This might be quite tricky job since at this point Performance version already offers fantastic figures and tuning of this powertrain could be a lot more complicated than tuning of regular gasoline cars. According to CEO and founder of Saleen, Steve Saleen we could hear that there are plans to bring one of the best Tesla models available on the market. In the statement he said: “I fully intend to produce one of the most compelling Tesla’s to ever hit the roadway”. All this sounds great but until we see it in action it is only rumors and promises.

Most updates will be most likely only exterior related. On these images we can see significant changes where almost every segment of the vehicle will receive upgrades and updates. Completely new bumper without grille and new air intakes that are now positioned much lover and further to the corners make it look even more aggressive and every driver will be certainly noticed on the road.

Looking at the hood we have few more modifications. New creases on the hood are nicely incorporated with front bumper while looking from the side this vehicle have slightly changed quarter panels where the turn signals are now opened plus we can see carbon ceramic brakes that should improve stopping power of this model. On the back we could notice larger spoiler and redesigned rear bumper that should improve the cooling of the brakes.

When it comes to interior it is highly unlikely that large changes will be made. We do expect to see small improvements that will mostly include few added badges of Saleen. Luxury in original version was at pretty high level but with the introduction of the 2015 Tesla Model S Saleen edition this should be pushed even further. Renderings show the combination of Alcantara and leather, we are sure that both of these are of highest quality. Things that we still do not know about this tuned version is the price but we do expect it to be pretty high.
