Saleen had been planning the move for several years now and is happy that the company will be run by a team he describes as “the most talented and innovative professionals in the industry”.
As founder and a major shareholder in the company, Saleen will continue to influence product design and development activities, as well as its branding strategies and promotional efforts.
Saleen Inc. has come a long way in recent years. Last year alone it produced close to 5,000 vehicles, and the future will see its product portfolio expand with even more Ford-derived models. We’ll also see Saleen Inc. release original equipment manufacturer (OEM) programs later this year for both Ford and Chrysler including a range of Saleen-branded performance parts.
