I have to say that -though there are some viewing angles from which it looks interesting- I simply don't like it! visually.... for all other claims like 1050hp engines, 2.39sec acceleration, 600km range and all other hi-tech "mumbo-jumbo", only time will tell...

there's also a bunch of presentation videos:

China-backed electric vehicle startup Faraday scales back U.S. plans
Reuters-Business News

By Paul Lienert and Norihiko Shirouzu | DETROIT/BEIJING | Wed Feb 1, 2017

...Faraday...is throttling back on plans...

...Faraday will build a much smaller auto assembly facility than originally planned in North Las Vegas, Nevada,
a city official said late on Tuesday.

North Las Vegas city manager Qiong Liu said Faraday told the city it will build a 650,000-square-foot...facility,
beginning later this year, on the site of a plant originally planned to take up 3 million square feet.
(A source familiar with the company's thinking said the smaller Nevada plant likely will be set up to build fewer than 10,000 cars a year and may not open until 2019)...

...also pared its planned product portfolio down from seven to two vehicles...

...At least a dozen key U.S. executives have departed Faraday in the last nine months...
