Faraday Future FF 91 Autobahn development testing underway

Faraday Future FF 91 Autobahn development testing underway

Faraday Future has lofty goals for its slick FF 91 EV. It had the car at the Pikes Peak hill climb last year and the FF 91 set a new EV class record at the event. Obviously, that record fell this year when VW and its I.D. R absolutely crushed the mountain. Faraday Future is now talking about the development it is doing for the FF 91 when it comes to sustained high-speed cruising of the sort you do on the Autobahn.

Faraday Future’s money woes claim planned Las Vegas plant

Though Faraday Future gave a rather grandiose presentation at CES 2017, whispers of money problems have followed the company around for much of the year. Faraday Future has mostly kept quiet on these rumors, but today we're seeing big indication that the company is indeed experiencing some financial woes. Faraday Future has been forced to cancel plans for its 1 million square foot factory in Las Vegas, leaving little to the imagination when it comes to the company's financial situation.

Faraday Future’s FF91 sets new EV record at Pikes Peak

Faraday Future’s FF91 sets new EV record at Pikes Peak

While Faraday Future's — errr, future — remains in question, what with the fleeing executives and uncertain unveilings at CES, the company's all-electric FF91 prototype not only made it to the top of the famous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado earlier this week, but it set a new record time for its vehicle class. This marks one of the first times the FF91 has been seen in a real-world, uncontrolled environment, and making it the 12.4-mile, 156-turn Pikes Peak course was certainly a challenge.

Faraday Future hit with $1.8m lawsuit in sizzle reel spat

Would-be Tesla crusher Faraday Future has found itself in another legal mess, being hit with a lawsuit for allegedly failing to pay for a high-tech virtualization of its electric car. The automaker made headlines at CES 2017 earlier this month, when it took the wraps off the Faraday Future FF 91, a luxury sedan with high-tech autonomous driving abilities. However, while the FF 91 reveal was a hit, some of the startup's other promotional plans have apparently gone awry.

Faraday Future FF 91: Five things you need to know

If Faraday Future's 2016 CES was shaky, with a last-minute prototype wheeled out instead of the electric car the company had intended to show, then CES 2017 has proved far more dramatic. The freshly-unveiled FF 91 has everything you need from an EV aiming to show up the gas-powered mainstream: sky-high power figures, big range claims, and the sort of technology that you'd expect from Silicon Valley players turned automakers. Here are five big things you need to know.

Here’s the FF 91, Faraday Future’s long-awaited electric vehicle

It's been a long time coming, but Faraday Future has finally taken the stage at CES 2017 to reveal its first electric vehicle, dubbed the FF 91. Ask Faraday senior vice president of engineering Nick Sampson, though, and the FF 91 is more than just a car - it's a "new species," that will be "the world's first ecosystem connected car." There are four different components to that ecosystem, and Sampson took us through each before pulling the veil off the car for the first time.

Faraday Future prototype beats Model X P100D to 60MPH in video

Ambitious electric car company Faraday Future has released a video showing a prototype it has created beating a few cars in a short race from 0 to 60MPH. The prototype, of which no details are provided, races the Tesla Model X P100D, the Ferrari 488 GTB, and the Bentley Bentayga. As you’d expect, considering it’s Faraday Future’s own video, its unnamed, shrouded prototype beats all three.

EV startup Faraday Future puts hold on Nevada production factory

While Tesla continues to make progress towards finishing its Nevada-based battery-producing Gigafactory, rival electric car startup Faraday Future is having trouble getting its manufacturing plant even started. While Faraday Future first broke ground on its Nevada facility in April of this year, and continues to tease that its consumer car will begin shipping next year, construction on the production plant has been halted due to financial troubles.

Faraday Future teases its first production EV in video

California-based electric vehicle startup Faraday Future has remained mostly quiet on its production car plans following the unveiling of its FFZero1 concept at this year's CES, back in January, but that may soon be changing. The company released a short video today teasing its upcoming production model, and while it's slim on details, it's enough to see that the EV will be less supercar concept, and more in line with the four-sedan/crossover segment.
