Saleen has announced their mysterious electric vehicle will be based on the Tesla Model S.

Details are limited but CEO Steve Saleen said the upcoming model will have a "revolutionary design all our own." He went on to say "I fully intend to produce one of the most compelling Tesla's to ever hit the roadway."

While Saleen is typically known for tuning Mustangs, he says Tesla's values are similar to their own as they embrace "power, style, and performance." Saleen went on to say he has admired Tesla's craftsmanship and has a desire to produce vehicles that are not dependent on fossil fuels.

There's no word on when the model will be launched but Saleen said we can expect to see renderings and performance specifications as development progresses.
