During the unveiling of its commemorative SA-30 models at the LA Auto Show, Steve Saleen mentioned that his company was working on the development of a new supercar as a followup to the 2000-2004 Saleen S7 (shown above).

"We haven't forgotten about the supercar genre," Saleen said. "We are working on what we'll call the 'S8' and the continuation of the American supercar."

The last we heard of a supercar from Saleen was the S5S Raptor that made its grand entrance at the 2008 New York Auto Show, but that seemed to get lost in the shuffle when Saleen, Inc. was sold off in 2009. At that point, Saleen had already moved on to form SMS Supercars, but after reacquiring the Saleen name and brand last year, it would appear the supercar is definitely back on the table.
