When is it coming? Saleen Automotive says it is commencing manufacturing of the S1 “immediately.” The first models are expected to roll off the line in late summer 2018.

Should you buy it? Yes, if you’re an extrovert who likes speeding tickets. Steve Saleen is not an unknown quantity; a noted race driver, he has almost 35 years experience as a designer and manufacturer, producing six generations of Saleen Mustangs, plus trucks and the near-legendary Saleen S7 supercar. Also, it’s not like you’re going to find an S1 on every block.
