News & Notes:
Saleen Automotive Unleashes the All-Electric, All-Performance Tesla Saleen FOURSIXTEEN
CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2014) (OTCQB: SLNN), (OTCBB: SLNN)
Saleen Automotive, Inc. debuted its highly anticipated all-electric Tesla Model S based vehicle "The FOURSIXTEEN" at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on Sunday, August 17, 2014. The Saleen FOURSIXTEEN boasts an array of features that make the
vehicle faster, more stylish with an improved ride while maintaining Tesla Motor's remarkable mileage efficiency.
"We have used all the experience and ingenuity in our collective acumen to create a truly exceptional Tesla Model S in our new
FOURSIXTEEN," stated Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive. "By dramatically improving the aerodynamics, suspension, braking,
and drive train we are able to create a car that accelerates quicker with vastly improved handling. It is truly exceptional."
"I think that we have also raised the bar significantly with styling and improved interior that are worthy of the Saleen moniker," added
Saleen.
"I believe we've honored Tesla Motors with our enhancements, and we look forward to many years of creating new and amazing
Saleen Tesla FOURSIXTEENS that blend Tesla's groundbreaking innovation with Saleen's racing pedigree and decades of automotive performance," said Saleen.
MSRP for the FOURSIXTEEN model is set to start at $152,000 for the complete vehicle, which includes the base P85 Model S sedan.
This is priced before existing state and federal EV incentives which can range from $7,500 to $15,000 depending on the buyer’s state
(i.e. A California resident would pay $142,000.00).
Warranties are also included on all new Saleen vehicles, components, and labor. Each newly purchased Saleen FOURSIXTEEN will
include a 4-year / 50,000 mile warranty.
Purchases for this all new electric vehicle can be placed by contacting Saleen directly for an expedited ordering process of the Saleen
FOURSIXTEEN. Orders are now being taken for the FOURSIXTEEN with delivery 6-8 weeks following order confirmation and receipt.
A full list of the Saleen Tesla FOURSIXTEEN's specifications and photographs is available at the following link:

Saleen Breaks the Sound Barrier (Electric): Redefining electric sound with the new FOURSIXTEEN
Saleen Automotive Inc. Corona, CA – (September 4, 2014) (OTCQB: SLNN), (OTCBB: SLNN)
Driving an electric car is uniquely different than their piston-powered brethren. Experiencing a performance-electric car reinvigorates the thrill of driving. However, the
adrenaline rush you get from hearing the engine go to full throttle is a typically overlooked aspect of electric vehicles. Saleen Automotive has solved this problem in their
all-electric FOURSIXTEEN performance sedan. Among the many aerodynamic and
styling enhancements, the Model S-based vehicle also provides Saleen specific performance giving it better handling, efficient cooling, and quicker acceleration along with
a distinct, naturally-occurring sound.
Inspired by the sound of a Formula One car and derived from Saleen’s racing heritage, the acceleration and deceleration tones give
the new drivetrain note a dynamic range. “This is what the future sounds like,” explains Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive.
“Anytime you watch a movie or TV show about the future, vehicles make a distinctive sound. That is what we achieved with our
FOURSIXTEEN. I think George Jetson would approve.”
Saleen has always been known for creating distinctive automotive sounds in their performance vehicles. Historically, their exhaust and
supercharger notes are as thrilling to hear as they are to experience. The all new FOURSIXTEEN is no different, and thanks to their
engineering team, will be known for being the first production electric car with a naturally produced sensory stimulating sound.
Saleen is currently taking orders for the Saleen Tesla FOURSIXTEEN. More information can be found by visiting saleen.com or calling
(714) 400-2121. Check out the video! http://vimeo.com/105394986
Editor’s note: I had a ride in the Saleen FOURSIXTEEN. It really does sound like the video! Below are my photos taken at Saleen

of the event, the Saleen had "Deadmans Hand" and a graphic of
a card hand with "Aces and Eights". The Saleen was a black
coupe with a Red Butterfly hood. Each registered participant had
the opportunity to roll 6 dice, each with only one letter on one
side to make the word "SALEEN". No one was able to roll
"SALEEN" so the car was auctioned on Sunday.
Steve Saleen was the guest speaker at the Sunday evening
banquet. He opened his talk with a statement that he was mad
that no one knew how to spell "SALEEN". Of course he was
referring to the unsuccessful "SALEEN" dice roll that was held
just before the banquet.
Steve Saleen gave a talk about his current projects. He has a
new distributor in China. His wife, Liz, and daughter, Molly, had
to miss the SMR to attend events in China. Steve had photos of
his Saleen S7 at the 2014 Beijing International Auto Show, the
new Saleen FOURSIXTEEN all electric Tesla S, and the rendering of the 2015 Saleen 302 Mustang. On display by the stage
was an impressive collection of Saleens representing several
custom Saleen colors - Lizstick Red, Orange County Orange,
Tire Smoke White, and Beryllium. A ChromeMolly Saleen was
on display under the Saleen tent.
The Sturgis Mustang Rally has something for everyone. Mark
your calendars for September 2-6, 2015. At this time it is too
early to know Steve Saleen’s schedule for 2015, but Steve loves
this event and might return in 2015.

SALEEN and SOEC presented the Saleen Annual Car Show & Open House at
Saleen Headquarters, 2735 Wardlow Road, Corona, California.
Some of the mystery about the 2015 Saleen 302 has been solved. The renderings
of the full front and side of the new Saleen 302 were revealed at the event. (The
renderings are on the front cover) of this newsletter.) Typically a novelist will reveal the details of the story in various chapters. Steve Saleen is keeping fans in
suspense for yet another chapter, the rendering of the rear of the 2015 Saleen
302 Mustang. Update on back cover: 2015 Saleen S302 Mustang Debut, Los Angeles, California, Friday, February 20, 2015.
Ford has chosen to produce the 2.3 Liter EcoBoost Mustang to begin the 2015 model year. The EcoBoost engine will have 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft. of torque with a Best-in-class 21 city/32 hwy/25 combined mpg.
The EcoBoost Mustang might be ok for many Mustang enthusiasts, but performance oriented
Saleen fans are waiting for the release of the 8 cylinder 302 Mustangs. The renderings of the
2015 Saleen 302 Mustang have satisfied a little of the curiosity of Saleen fans. Patience will be
necessary to get to the last chapter of the novel to be revealed on Friday, February 20, 2015.
The debut of the 2015 Saleen Mustang renderings was not the only featured product at the show.
Steve Saleen entered the display circle in the main parking lot in the Lipstick Red Saleen FOURSIXTEEN that was debuted at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on Sunday, August
17, 2014. The Saleen Show was the first time that most Saleen fans had an opportunity to see
the amazing, all electric, Saleen version of the Tesla Model S. Steve described the features in
detail as everyone had a chance to photograph the car.
Above & below: Steve opened the event with his first presentation - the viewing of the all electric Saleen FOURSIXTEEN, based
on the Tesla S. Saleen staff gave some test rides. This stunning
ride is a peek at the future of sports cars, Electric Vehicles.

Saleen Expands Electric Performance Vehicle Lineup
Saleen delivers the 1st Saleen Tesla model, and provides additional drivetrain options.
Saleen Automotive Inc. (OTCQB: SLNN) Corona, CA – (November 20, 2014)
Saleen Automotive has begun deliveries of the Model S based Saleen FOURSIXTEEN, which comes only a short time after the successful new product launch in Pebble Beach, CA. This places Saleen Automotive, Inc. in an advantageous position in the rapidly
growing electric performance car segment as the Saleen Tesla (ST) hits the streets.
“Keeping with our core competencies, we’ve accomplished concept-to-production in a short time,” noted Steve Saleen, CEO of
Saleen Automotive. “Moving quickly in the automotive industry is paramount to maintaining (and gaining) marketshare, especially in
such an advanced segment as the electric car market.”
2015 ST Models on the Horizon
In addition to production on the current 2014 P85+ based sedan, Saleen is also taking orders on the 2015 model lineup. The updated
2015 drivetrain will present an additional opportunity for Saleen to increase cooling performance, aerodynamics, and acceleration on
the base 60 and 85, and P85D Model S chassis.
Advancements in the Model S base chassis drivetrain provide the 2015 ST models with additional ordering options: A single motor
380HP motor configuration and a dual motor 691HP motor configuration. As with the 2014 Saleen Tesla, both models will offer all
available driveline options and Saleen specific technology such as the motor cooling systems and driveline enhancements.
With a starting MSRP of $124,500 after federal tax credits, the newly updated vehicle and configurations on the 2015 all-electric
Saleen model will receive updated badging as well; The Saleen ST.
ST | 380
The 380HP base model will receive a myriad of additional upgrades including aerodynamics, aesthetics, braking, and Saleen specific
suspension components as standard equipment. New for this model year is the 2+2 Saleen performance seating which is now standard on all ST models. Optional equipment will continue and include the Saleen specific 11.39:1 final gear ratio and Saleen carbon
ceramic brakes.
ST | 691
This model is the ultimate in all-electric performance and provides a unique track capable throttle response, acceleration,
and torque management efficiency worthy of any world-class Supercar. When configured with the Saleen specific features
and optional drive ratios, the 691HP all-wheel drive dual motor configuration is expected to accelerate at a seat planting
0-60MPH in under 3 seconds.
