    Default Saleen for Sale



    http://www.autoblog.com/2008/11/09/s...e-up-for-sale/

    Well, never thought you'd see this, but I guess since the US economy is in such shambles it's not likely people will buy expensive cars like they used to. Lets just hope it doesn't get bought by some foreign (IE: Chinese, Indian) automaker and turned into a joke.
    I'm a bit mental.

    When I saw the thread title I thought you meant somebody was selling a Saleen S281 for a ridiculously low price...

    Well I don't think it'll be the last tuner/low volume manufacturer/design house to go

    The euorpean car industry is in big trouble with the 'credit crunch' too ... sales of luxury cars are down about 20-30% which is a HUGE amount and it means large companies are now scaling back budgets on lots of programmes
    I'd rather be topless !

    I don't like them but will be a shame to see them go. Hope they get bought and that they produce a new car, not something stolen from other places

    Excuse me?! 1.) Look at the S7 and the S5S and 2.) They aren't a car manufacturer, they are a tuning company, Steve Saleen got famous for being a Mustang tuner, he just made tons of money from it so he started making loads of SRs and got world famous for his work then the S7 and the S281 came about.
