Interested in the S1, Has anyone placed a deposit?
And if so, what was your experience?

My request for quote last weekend was not answered this week. I expected a ready made response with more information, but nothing. Generally companies respond quickly to any/all potential sales inquires. As my first impression with Saleen, this hits me sideways. What service and support can I expect as an actual Saleen owner? Hence the questions. TIA.

The S1 sports car is not in production.

The only examples that exist are the pre-production development street cars and the "Cup Car" competition version.

obviously never bought one. Never put down a deposit. Saleen was requesting a $10,000 deposit with no delivery timeline or refund stipulations. I figure some folks just lost $10,000.

I now own a Lotus Evora GT and love it.

Does this car exist? :confused:
I am not aware since I am still driving an old car model.

Cool car but I would hold off till and if it passes emissions and crash testing. Just my two cents. Cool in person and theory.

I have zero insight, past what I have read, but it seems the Saleen partnership with China, has taken a substantial turn for the worse.

That sucks for Steve.

China is our friend, anyone that tells you otherwise is lying to you.....

Did you get this car? How did the transaction go?
