Saleen FourSixteen TeslaMondoThe Saleen FourSixteen is a thing of beauty, for three reasons.
1. Saleen’s interest in the Model S bridges a gap between the old school of auto performance and the new. That’s good. The electric vehicle segment needs more of this assimilative legitimacy.
2. It suggests the Model S has a long shelf life in its current iteration, since it’s considered creative fodder even two years in.
3. It fails to aesthetically improve the stock Model S. That’s the best news of all, for it means Franz von Holzhausen’s slippery, eggy design is darned good right out of the box. Anything added looks superfluous, and anything subtracted is dearly missed.
