Where’s Faraday Future’s $1 Billion Factory?

Back in late twenty fifteen, California startup Faraday Future announced its intent to build a massive $1 billion factory in the Nevada desert north of Las Vegas. It would, the company promised, be the place where it would produce multiple electric cars with performance, range and specifications to match Tesla’s Model S and Model X.

It even managed to gain $335 million in tax relief and abatements form the Nevada State legislature to help secure the deal.
