Although FF generally has been dismissed on this forum as vaporware, recent reporting shows many reasons to be worried about the ability of U.S. EV firms such as Tesla to compete with FF. These reports (Google "Faraday Future Jia Yeuting lecar" and read reports from the Guardian, Clean Technica, and elecrek.co) establish that FF is owned by Chinese entrepreneur Yeuting who has received billions of dollars in subsidies from the Chinese government. Thus, it is clear that the Chinese government is bankrolling FF and its U.S. operations. Am I the only one apprehensive about that link? Chinese market manipulation and illegal subsidies in many industries (steel, air, autos) are well known to create an unlevel playing field and unfair competition in the U.S. I fear innovators like Tesla who obey competition laws are going to run smack into that morass. I also fear that FF will continue to poach top talent from U.S. firms to the detriment of the U.S. industry and to the benefit of the Chinese government. Am I being xenophobic or crazy in fearing that the U.S. EV industry will be harmed by FF, which is a shill for the Chinese government?
