    Faraday Future, which recently announced a fresh $2 billion in funding, now says it has built its first pre-production vehicle.

    The FF91 uses three electric motors to crank out 1,050 horsepower. The vehicle is said to be capable of a 0-60 mph time of 2.39 seconds. Range is expected to exceed 300 miles on a single charge. The company is also building in autonomous driving capabilities.

    Nice to see another startup in this space although it will be difficult to compete with Tesla on cost and overall engineering design. I am surprised that they went with a station wagon configuration for high end car. People who surf may like this configuration assuming a surf board fits in it. When is someone going to work with McLaren to make an electric F-1 never mind the FF91? That I think would be the ultimate high end car.

    I find it interesting these EV's being spec'd with this type of power, but not near Roadster v2's purported 0-60 times...

    1,050 horsepower? Wow!. That's outrageous. Personally, I can't see the need for more than 1,000. ;)

    Actually I was thinking about it and it occured to me that maybe some Tesla engineers could work with McLaren and surprise Elon with a McLaren F-1 prototype that comes pre insured and with a "watch this" mode switch in addition to the ultra ludacris and flux capacitor modes. The flux capacitor mode would store up the battery power for instant 1.2 gigawatts of power to the four wheels for total ridiculous acceleration. You would need ultra-gooey tires and a neck brace to maintain control though. Who needs rocket thrusters when you have a F-1 with a flux capacitor? Time for people to start working together.

    Does this look a lot like a Prius V or am I imagining things?

    Truly a thing of beauty, and affordable to boot!

    Well, they did show off their FFZero1 at CES2016. The "car of concepts":

    150K-300K is affordable?

    The problem is baked into the name... Future... "some time out there"

    They should change the name to Faraday Today, and deliver a car!

    Now onto my second Tesla, we're not waiting for the future. Drivin' it instead.

    These guys are so far behind. Maybe Faraday Yesterday is more appropriate?

    The FFZero1 reminds me a lot of the Batmobile. Nice to look at once or twice but not a timeless and classic design like the F-1 or Ferrari 308GT.

    Just my 2 cents.

    ... and you can have one for a mere $300k+ per vehicle. FAIL!
