Saleen Reassures us “S8″ Supercar is Coming

When the Saleen S5S Raptor concept made an appearance in Detroit a few years back, we were just one of many publications drooling over this masterpiece of performance and design. It was a much-needed breath of fresh air following the S7. But since then, Saleen hasn’t produced anything to follow it’s highly-touted supercar — at least, until now.

With Saleen debuting its three latest products at the LA Auto Show, Steve Saleen assured the press that a new supercar is coming, dubbed (for now) the S8. Of course, this isn’t the first time that Saleen has announced plans of a future supercar, as only a few months back we heard news that a new Saleen would be here in 2016.

But, this news is good to hear. Let’s just hope that Saleen keeps to its promise of building powerful and sexy supercars, the likes of which we’ve seen in the past.
