  • Every FF vehicle model to include the signature “UFO line”. 😉

    It sounded like production won’t start for another 24 months, but was not clear if for the FFZero1, or another concept model variation.

    I tuned in to watch as was curious if FF is planning on being a highend brand with limited production, or desires to become a high volume consumer product. To me it’s still not clear were FF’s path to the future leads, even after all the Apple references.

      I don’t think I heard anything more than what every other car manufacturer is promising; performance, flexibility for the new generation, etc. etc. It still seems marking hype. I anticipate an ordinary looking sedan in a few years time.

        But, but, but… who is going to “kill” Tesla in the meantime? GM?! 😉

  • FYI: The FF VR App is now live, (Android/Apple) you just need to download an print their sketch first before viewing.

    This company has made what is probably a huge marketing mistake revealing way too much far too soon. http://www.carswithcords.com/faraday-future-opens-the-kimono-and-reveals-too-much/

      I’d say the opposite.
      They hung around in stealth mode far too long. They were shielded from criticism while they played shadow games. Now, they’ve gone and ruined they brand they’ve hyped up.

    Yawn. Concept cars bore me. Show me what I can actually buy, that what matters. Also, it’s relatively easy to build 90% of a great car, witness the Fisker Karma. It’s the remaining 10% people will notice. Can Faraday Future produce 100% of a great car someone would buy over a name brand? TBD.
