萨伦’前十年的S7超级跑车将在未来两年中产生继任者，并将其称为“S8” (assuming there is no conflict with Audi and its own S8). The information was revealed by 萨伦 CEO and founder Steve 萨伦 during the recent 洛杉矶 Auto Show.
“We haven't forgotten about the supercar genre," 萨伦 told 汽车博客。 “我们正在努力开发所谓的'S8'以及美国超级跑车的延续。”
In 2007, 萨伦 was in the midst of developing a successor to the S7. The company rolled out the S5S猛禽概念 in 2008 to preview the car, but then Steve 萨伦 quit to start a new firm called SMS 超级跑车 and 萨伦 the company eventually ran into financial trouble. This provided Steve 萨伦 with the opportunity to take control of 萨伦 once again and continue work on the successor to the S7.
