End Of An Era: Saleen Mustang Production To Stop

Posted by on March 8, 2011 - more

The writing was on the wall when SMS was born and now by the end of the year the Saleen Mustang will no longer be produced.

Revstone announced today that it will refocus its strategy in performance vehicles to become a second stage manufacturer and a distributor of aftermarket performance parts. The move will allow the company – which currently produces Saleen Performance Vehicles and Saleen Speedlab parts – to leverage its size and customer relationships to provide a wider range of high performance offerings to consumers.

“The teams responsible for engineering and development of Saleen bring a level of engineering prowess and passion that is second to none,” said Bob LaCourciere, President of Revstone Aftermarket. “We want to apply that same talent and dedication to second stage manufacturing.”

As part of this strategic shift, the company has announced that the 2011 Saleen S302 (shown at the 2010 SEMA show) will be the last car produced under the Saleen name. The S302 vehicles are currently in production; all production will be completed by the third quarter of this year.

“We feel it is time to retire the legend, and to usher in a new era of performance,” continued LaCourciere. “We will continue to honor our warranties on Saleen vehicles, and Saleen parts will be available through Speedlab.”

The company plans to hold a webinar in the second quarter of 2011 to answer any questions and provide more insight into its plans for the transition.

    This is very unfortunate and I hope they will reconsider their decision. There is a strong connection between the Saleen and the Mustang as there is with Carol Shelby. It seems any Saleen built from the 1980’s to the present will beome a collectors item. Its sad their mission has changed.

    The bond between Saleen and the mustang is strong and I hope this is not a glimpse into the future that more Speciality mustangs will become harder to find.

    This is when you sit back and realize, Revstone Aftermarket has killed a massive part of culture and history. I truly hope that Bob LaCourciere continues to attempt to suck true brands dry of their consumer followings. Maybe then a REAL performance oriented company will save the Saleen brand from these assclowns and the depths of history.
