Please believe me when I say this

Almost NOTHING about this "news" is true, except for the fact that the car exists, and is MUCH better looking that what is presented here as the S1.

I cannot confirm or deny my sources but this press release is quite a work of Chinese based publicity for web hot links and not factually correct.

The new true S1 will be announced and shown to the world at the LA Auto Show...

Personally, to me, if final assembly of this vehicle is not in the US, it's a non-story.

Understood, but what I am saying is this is very much the idea of "fake news" that Chinese web companies use to create hits..

It reminds me of when Matchboxes stopped being made in England.

Initially, all Saleen 1 vehicles will be built in North America. Eventually, at an appropriate time in the future, the JSAT factory will assume responsibility for an entirely new line of Saleen vehicles, including the Saleen 1. That factory is in China.
