GET A PIECE OF SALEEN
Saleen is the leader in designing and manufacturing American high-performance sports cars and supercars. With 40+ years of experience developing cars with the Ford Motor Company, Saleen is now fundraising to bring the Saleen S1 to market.
With 300+ racing wins, Saleen has been featured in Road & Track, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Robb Report, Motor Trend, Muscle Cars and Trucks, Auto Evolution, Teslarati, Hot Cars, Fox News, and more.
The Luxury-Premium Performance market was $617 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach over $1 trillion by 2030. Saleen hopes to capitalize on this growth by continuing the Saleen Original Series.
While the Saleen S1 is brand new, the Saleen business is far from new. The company has a 40-year history with the Ford Motor Company, where they design, develop, manufacture, and sell high-performance vehicles based on the chassis of the Ford Mustang, Ford F-150, and new Ford Bronco. While these Ford vehicles are part of the Saleen Signature Series, we are continuing our Saleen Original Series with the Saleen S1, a two-seater sports car entirely designed and developed by Saleen Automotive.
Saleen is led by Steve Saleen, who is recognized worldwide for his expertise in specialized vehicle manufacturing, vehicle certification processes, and mass customization. In total, Steve Saleen has been an inventor to 25 patents across multiple facets of automobile design, development, and manufacturing.
The Problem & Our solution
Bringing a new series of vehicles to the marketplace is almost impossible unless you are a large, established, global manufacturer. However, Saleen has been making original vehicles for years, commencing with the Saleen S7 Supercar in 2000, Ford GT 2004-2006, and the Dodge Viper.
The Saleen S1 is the next chapter in the Saleen Original Series. Seeing the need for a true “Driver’s Car,” Steve Saleen and team started with a clean sheet of paper and designed the S1 based on 40 years of racing experience.
**The Saleen S1 is in the prototype phase and is not currently available on the market.
THE MARKET & OUR TRACTION
We believe Saleen is positioned well in a growing market, as the luxury premium performance car market was estimated to be $617 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2023 to 2030, reaching over $1 trillion by 2030. Saleen hopes to capitalize on this growth by launching the Saleen Original Series, first with the S1 and then introducing additional models in the following years. Saleen is continuing to see strong demand throughout the pandemic and is optimistic about the growth of its largest revenue stream, the Saleen Signature Series. (Source, Source)
Saleen generates revenue by designing, developing, and manufacturing automobiles. Currently, the majority of our revenue comes from the Saleen Signature Series, which includes globally popular Ford automobiles such as the Ford Mustang, Ford F-150, and Ford Bronco. The company’s newest revenue stream will come from the production and sales of the Saleen Original Series, which are designed, developed, and produced entirely in-house by Saleen Automotive.
We believe Saleen has a significant advantage in the marketplace over new competitors because of our existing distribution channels. We’ve established a dealership network of 80 Ford dealers and are continuously expanding as needed. By utilizing these dealers, Saleen has direct access into an existing customer base that provides tremendous opportunities. We also plan to open additional “Saleen Premiere” dealerships specifically aimed at marketing the Saleen Original Series like the S1. Saleen Premiere dealerships, much like the Ford dealers, are full service dealers that offer financing, service, and warranty. In addition to the dealership distribution model, Saleen also plans to expand on its previous 3e concept (Irvine) and open additional Saleen 3e centers at select locations. Saleen 3e Centers are direct to consumer showrooms (3e = Entertain, Educate, and Experience) that showcase the vehicles and the entire Saleen experience.
With its 40 year racing legacy, it makes perfect sense for Saleen to be present at appropriate racing venues to further expand its reach. By utilizing “Ride and Drives,” potentially new customers will be able to experience the awesome Saleen S1 first hand and turn the “interested” into “buyers.”
We believe Saleen is an established and extremely successful company, meaning an investor will invest not only in a new car series, but also in a company already generating revenue through its relationship with Ford Motor Company, including a 40-year history of racing and manufacturing. In addition to this, an investor will be getting a stake in the Saleen Original Series, starting with the S1, a high-performance American-made two-seater sports car entirely developed and designed by Saleen Automotive.
Saleen is fundraising to bring the S1 to market and eventually launch other cars in the Saleen Original Series. Investments in Saleen will help with S1 development, certification, manufacturing, the launch of Saleen 3e Centers, and the expansion of Saleen Original Series with other models.
Join Saleen and bring a new line of high-performance cars to the world! We create experiences, relationships, and lifestyles, centered around innovative, stylish, and high performance vehicles.
Saleen is a well-known company with a 40-year history in the automotive industry. The company started in competitive racing and quickly moved to manufacturing high-performance automobiles, including those under the Ford Motor Company umbrella. Saleen is continuing the Saleen Original Series, with the launch of the Saleen S1, a two-seater sports car entirely designed and developed by Saleen Automotive.

*In order to receive perks from an investment, one must submit a single investment in the same offering that meets the minimum perk requirement. Bonus shares from perks will not be granted if an investor submits multiple investments that, when combined, meet the perk requirement. All perks occur when the offering is completed.
Crowdfunding investments made through a self-directed IRA cannot receive non-bonus share perks due to tax laws. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) prohibits self-dealing transactions in which the investor receives an immediate, personal financial gain on investments owned by their retirement account. As a result, an investor must refuse those non-bonus share perks because they would be receiving a benefit from their IRA account.
** Includes coach class airfare from anywhere within the continental United States.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
