Faraday Future.



There has been a lot of buzz around this car. It was in a dimly lit very enclosed area of the hall.  So, my pictures kinda suck.

A lot of the electric car makers this year seem to think that people will want to sit in line/cockpit style, rather than next to each other side by side. I think that is ridiculous. We aren't that anti social yet. I'm guessing they are trying to save weight. Even the Blade Supercar I saw months back was a cockpit style car.

Just look at how groups of bicyclists behave. It used to be riders would ride one in front of the other. These days you mostly find groups riding side by side. I only noticed this because bike lanes were made for the old riding style. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to yell out the window -single file! Especially since California has made a rule you have to give them so much extra space. Sometimes they take up half of the car lane. You get stuck around them more often than you'd imagine. You really can't hear people talking well when you ride front to back. So I understand why they do it. It's just annoying. If bikers behave like this, I'm guessing people in cars will still want to sit side by side as well.

Mr S thinks this car will never be built. It's only a shell anyway. Jalopnic seemed to be shocked this was the case. Everyone knows how CES works..... right? Wait...Jalopnic knows how ALL car concept shows work. Right? That Trion Nemisis also was a shell. This is more the rule than the exception when it comes to concept cars. Some are one offs. Some are shells. It doesn't mean you can't give them shit about it. But at least be honest and give them all shit about it. Because it happens all the time. The Trion was at least of the stage of taking pre-orders. So it's pretty close to being a real car.

Mr S. thinks they are just creating buzz so they can get funding to make more affordable models. Tesla Style.  Tesla started out with a very expensive model. They are just now getting to more affordable models.
