    Exactly, that was all the press on Faraday Future was that the FFZERO1 is not a car anyone wanted in production. Folks were expecting a production prototype in January from FF.

    The LeSEE was a surprise... But closer to a sedan concept (kinda like the Mercedes Benz Autonomous prototype from the past few years.)

    Sounds like Faraday is not going to show their car until their supply chain and factory are almost done. What if their car is not appealing or too expensive?

    We keep on getting mixed signals on FF (Nevada plant up in the air, multiple teasers on the car, now this, courtesy of Teslarati, etc.) - Clearly they have to be able to fund building the car... trust they're counting on the ealry Jan. reveal in Vegas to boost interest... and investors' support!

    Even as cheese cutter, @Badback ? :p
    On a more serious note, NOT on mine either, I can assure you... Yet, since there are the occasional posts on this company, I just thought for consistency purposes to create this thread in which I will move related past posts over the weekend.
    Have a great day!

    As a manufacturer of EVs and a growing employer in the Southern California, I am paying close attention to Faraday Future.

    I have been invited and will be at the reveal in Vegas on January 3rd...

    I'll probably write a blog post about this. In the meantime, here is a blog post of my visit to the FF headquarters earlier in 2016

    Cool, keep us posted. I want to see what Mr. Rawlinson (formerly of the Model S development program) and other ex-Tesla engineers have come up with.

    Sometimes a fresh take on things is good.

    Here is Peter talking about the Model S during development:

    I think the only one it's going against of interest is the Tesla, and at FF's anticipated price it'd make the P100D's price look like a corolla.
    What will be truly interesting is to see if they are around long enough (and interested in developing) a vehicle aimed at those with less than a millionaire financial title.

    I'm really not all that interested in acceleration (to just 100 km / 60 m ... what's the use?).
    Sell me an affordable and comfortable BEV with Autonomous drive and a useful range of at least 400 realistic km while keeping up with our normal highway speeds (100-130 km/h) and I'm very happy.

    Reportedly, I will launch a dozen new BEVs by 2076. Oh...wait..I will be long gone by then.

    Maybe I should just get a ≡.

    Thanks @Michael Russo, useful info!
    Actually I would love to see a serious competitor to Tesla arrive.
    Especially if the following citation from Teslarati is true:
    "Sources have told us that Faraday will present multiple vehicles that demonstrates the versatility of the company’s Variable Platform Architecture (VPA) which includes a long range and high performance version – the same vehicle seen beating Tesla’s flagship Model S P100D in a drag race – and a self-driving prototype that can be hailed via a mobile app."
    Of course creating prototypes is a whole different ballgame to producing huge numbers of cars.
    We will see it, when we see it....

    I looked at some other video's about FF. It does sound interesting what FF does. But they expect to be putting out cars from 2020 on!
    Whereas Tesla is already doing almost the same and so much ahead now.
    So what if maybe another company will surpass Tesla, that's always what Elon Musk said he wanted anyway; fundamentally help change the transport industry for a better more sustainable future, but not only by himself, but with the help of other companies.

    I sometimes feel like I'm finally living in the 'hard' Science Fiction-future which I loved reading about when I was a teenager, devouring all the books by Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke as my favourites. I still have a bookcase full of them.
