Default 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?
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.

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