    Let us know about your reservation for the FF91. I did a Standard Reservation on day 1: 1/03/2017 because why not. My booking number is FF-424J-GRPY.

    I was going to register just to see if the design studio is up - is it? Is there any additional information available after you register? Any pictures of the interior?

    Not yet. When you click for more details on the FF 91, you just get a placeholder graphic.

    I got one of the first Model Xes, a founders edition. I can tell you that with the months it has been in the shop since purchase, it also was not a production car. My wife is a happy beta tester for Tesla and loves the car.

    This is the kind of thing that really bothers me about FF. They make this claim, but I am quite sure that the VAST majority of those 64k "reservations" are just people signing up for the free one, which in effect is no different than signing up for a marketing email list from your local fish market. It is utterly meaningless (heck I signed up just to see their process, I have less-than-zero percent chance of buying one). They have not even hinted at the actual cost of the car, so I can't imagine tens of thousands of people are plopping down $5000 on a complete and total unknown.

    But they continue to do things like this which just degrade their credibility for anyone that can step back and think for more than 5 seconds. It's like the slimiest kind of glossing-over-reality and not at all what the EV market needs. Each of these little stunts just make my distaste for their vehicle and company grow.

    The FF 91 is 5250mm long and 2283mm wide - 4mm longer and 383mm wider than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
    You can get lost in the car, it's that big.

    I like that serious competition will make Tesla improve their offerings.

    >> I liked the fact that in this demonstration the car backed into the spot.

    Any idea where the charger port is located?

    May be the car choose to backup because of the position of the port on the rear side like on a Tesla?

    However, to be able to select between front or rear parking need to be available.

    Many places don't allow to backup, may be because some ICE's exhaust might create a stain on a wall?

    However baking up into a parking slot is safer, because many accidents occur when two cars from two opposite rows are exiting at the same time.

    Them sneaking a driver into the FF during the autonomous parking demo is too much smoke and mirrors for me.

    Ah, the ninja driver stealthily slipping into the driver's seat of the "autonomous" car. Dim the stage lights and maybe no one will notice. ;) Now this makes me wonder if the successful parking lot demo was real or if it was done by a person off-camera via remote control (like on MythBusters).

    I wish Tesla would sneak a driver into my Model S to help it find those parking spots. More miss than hit when relying on Tesla for autopark. I have AP 1.0 so maybe AP 2.0 will have reliable autopark.

    Looks more like a wagon. Are they calling it a sedan?

    It reminds me of the spaceship from You Only Live Twice... Perhaps it is devouring EVs underway.

    No company headquarted outside of Europe will call a new vehicle a wagon.

    It is a crossover utility vehicle.
