    A small audience, by invite only, will be at Lucid's reveal in Fremont on the 14th of December. There has been a lot of hard work put into this car by some dedicated EV engineers. After the event I'll be allowed to tell you what I know. At this time I know absolutely nothing about the car, I've only been invited, my contact shares nothing with me, he's been 100% secretive. But you can check in here on the 15th or 16th, I'll let you know what I learned.

    As the auto manufacturers (except Tesla) are already requesting of Trump to lower emissions and EV requirements, I am hoping EV only manufacturers all the success possible!

    This is just an alpha prototype. Wait till the official unveiling.

    It's in Fremont, Dec 14th, by invite. Peter Rawlinson is CTO there - plus some other former Tesla folks & big investors.

    Ahh, good call. I did a top-level search before posting, but didn't see that one. I'll ask a mod to merge.

    Two thumbs up for the quasi ram-jet/scram-jet style of forced air, both for cooling and for de-turbulentizing (sorry!, but "laminarilizing" is even worse!) the rear.

    I'm sure the non-stealth version will look a lot less kludgy. It had better!

    That invite had me flashing back to the 60's: "Wow these hors d'oeuvres are really heavy man. Can you dig it?" :cool:

    I look forward to seeing what Lucid Motors has come up with.

    Well this is a bummer. I've been on the Atieva email list for a while now and I've not seen any information regarding this. Heck, I even applied for a job there over a year ago. I just went to the Lucid site and signed up for information (which should be a duplicate).

    You had to "know" somebody. There are only 200 allowed and most are likely journalists.

    That's great Bonnie. Hopefully with some name tags affixed, I'll finally have a chance to meet you.

    I have zero evidence for or against this, but I am thinking to be successful, Lucid will have, or at least entertained the idea, of joining Tesla's Supercharger system. I am hoping we find an answer to this at the reveal.
