From hot-rodded Mustangs to the S7 supercar, Steve Saleen made a name wringing horsepower out of eight-cylinder Ford engines. His eponymous firm’s latest creation, though, is something different. And after a lengthy gestation, the Saleen FourSixteen, a modified Tesla Model S, has finally made its debut at Pebble Beach.

Aug 19 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

While buying a Tesla Model S requires customers to fork out at least $69,000, owning one is more than affordable, given the fact that you don’t have to visit the gas station unless you need a sandwich and a soda. As of August 2014, current and future owners have one more reason to be happy with their all-electric sedan, as Tesla has extended the drive unit warranty for the 85 kWh sedan to match that of the battery back. Specific ...

Tesla Expands Eight-Year, “Infinite-Mile” Model S Battery Warranty to EV’s Powertrain

Aug 19 2014 9:15am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Everyone knows there’s no coming back from the “infinite dog dare” schoolyard taunt—once it’s said, whoever it was aimed at is in for an existential review of their morals, danger comprehension, and whether their tongue actually will stick to that frozen flagpole. Someone, perhaps Tesla Motors’ marketing folks, levied a similar reproach to CEO Elon Musk, because he has just introduced some next-level warranty news for Model S owners that’s su ...
