I have been a saleen fan since the 90's and always liked saleen products especially the s281e's, then my mind was blown when they released the s7. How many other aftermarket parts companies do you know that have built a super car from the ground up. I like what they did to the 550's grill and with the tesla. I would really like to see them get their financial issues resolved. But as will all internet trolls and haters the people who are talking down on this company have clearly never actually used any of their products.

Lol, nice find!

It would be nice to see Saleen introduce some new products for the S550. I wasn't a big fan of the FourSixteen after seeing it in person, but they make some awesome aero parts.

I would totally buy a Saleen over a Roush but that's just my preference.
Having owed several Roush Mustangs (member at FNSWEET-largest Roush membership, also member at TeamShelby-2013 GT500) we do a lot of gtc with the Saleen club, 90% of the people including me would take a Roush over the Saleen, even Saleen owners would agreed. Saleen is looking good while Roush main focus is handling and hitting that apex. The question you have to ask is, if you buy a Saleen, and if they ever hit the market, with their financial status, how's their support system, warranty, parts and services when you need them? I've known a few Saleen owners of older models having warranty related issues not being covered because the company has exchanged hands some many times, they just point the finger at someone else. Take the S197 mustang, Roush actually had the car 7 months before it was released, they did throughout testing, chassis tuning, suspension tuning, and Jack himself drove the test mule for several weeks. Ford is so impressed with what Roush has done for their racing WORKS team that the Shelby GT500 is tuned and tested by Roush. As for Saleen, the last few models of Mustangs just feel like someone got whatever last penny they have, put a body kit together, and that's the last anyone hear of it, they did it with the S197, 2010 Mustang, the Camaro, Tesla. Then you still have financial issues, bankruptcy, owners suing owners, Steve Saleen suing for his name back, there's some many question marks with this company, and products not being delivered. At the end of the day, for $50K, you are better of with the GT350.

That car looks like it's for testing aftermarket mustang add ons.

Not the actual Saleen build.

Gotta say I love what Saleen does with the mustang.

Always takes the design forward.

I posted this in its own thread but I think it got buried lol. Since we're on the subject of Saleen Parts.. Let me know what you all think of this:
I have some ideas for what I want to do to my Mustang. I had ALWAYS wanted to do a GT350 Tribute car but with a real one out on the streets Shelby's taken that away from me lol.

I used to love the Saleens from the late 80's and even did put a wing on my 89 LX 5.0 along with the 302 decals and the Ford Motorsport decals in the quarter windows.. My thinking is possibly recreating that with my V6. I like th CDC spoiler as it reminds me of the old Saleen whale tail and possibly putting graphics along the rocker panels, change the grill.. Etc. this is only one possibility but wanted to know what you all think

It's best just to let the large horizontal plastic stripes die.

Matter of personal taste.

I personally think they add an air of modernity and class.

I'd like it if the honeycomb would die. Lol

I'd say thats most likely the case. I'd be scared if that is their build being released in 20 days!

He also has a Charcoal colored S550 he drives, which I havent had a chance to take a look at yet.... hmmm
