The Faraday Future FF91: An Electric Vehicle With A 378 Mile Range, 0 - 60 In 2.39 Seconds

January 4, 2017

This is the Faraday Future FF91 (pronounced eff-eff-nine-one), an allegedly upcoming electric vehicle with an average range of 378 miles (a consistent 55MPH will increase range up to 482 miles), and the equivalent of 1,050-horsepower that can catapult its squashed, minivan like exterior from 0 - 60MPH in 2.39 seconds. For reference, my car can't even go 60MPH without important parts breaking off. A bunch of the car's technological specs while I change the chain on my bicycle:

Autonomous driving is a large part of the FF 91...it uses 30 sensors -- including a retractable LiDAR system [Light Detection and Ranging -- a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure variable distances to the Earth] -- from around the car to enable a self-parking function where it can hunt around a parking lot, not just take over after you've lined the car up.


The FF 91 will also use an open ecosystem where any app you have on your smartphone...will integrate across platforms. Multiple modems and two Wi-Fi antennae, it's claimed...make the FF 91 the "most convenient hotspot on earth."

Just as impressive as what is in the FF 91, is what is not in the FF 91...There are no door handles. Instead, buttons open and close motorized coach doors...There are no keys. Cameras use facial recognition to identify the driver, and...to identify passengers. Whether you take a seat in the front of your...FF 91...or in the back of an FF 91 halfway around the world, the car will automatically adjust...to your preferences.

There are no mirrors. High-definition displays replace the rear view and side view mirrors, and HD cameras...provide a far wider range of view than any traditional mirrors...If the company can pull things together, work its way through reported financial troubles and executive departures, and manage to launch this...vehicle, it will be a game-changer.

There's no official price set for the FF19 yet, although experts estimate the FF19 starting around $180,000. That actually doesn't sound too unreasonable for a car that's basically a spaceship that can't leave earth. Still -- that exterior styling though. For $180,000 I want it to be crystal clear to every other driver on the road that there is zero possibility I'm driving any kids to soccer practice.

Keep going for a couple more pictures, a short video about the car, a video of it beating a bunch of other cars in the 0 - 60, and its hour and a half unveiling at CES 2017.

    Nobody else is horrified by this car? Facial recognition for any of the cars on the planet? Fuck-fucking-no. Hell no! The world is already so sketchy with current technology (how many major companies have had serious data theft in the last couple of years?) but now a car will know each and every time I'm in any one of them? Gimme a friggin handle. I don't want to be locked out of my car in the snow just because an app is glitching.
    This is futuristic for the sake of being futuristic, not because it holds practical value.

    Self driving, no door handles, no keys...Welcome to Johnny Cab, please state your destination.

    But what if your kids sign up for soccer, GW?

    There are so many issues with this car it's tough to know where to even begin.

    The car is not going into production, and probably shouldn't.

  • "If the company can pull things together, work its way through reported financial troubles and executive departures..."
    It's never going to go into production.

    I've generated $84 ,000 until now soon working on the net moreover I'm a full time university student . I’m utilizing a home based business project I discovered and additionally I've made this kind of good money . It is actually really user-friendly not to mention I am just very glad that I discovered out about that . The possibility using this is long-term . Here’s stuff that I do>>>

    They are missing the point of what consumers want in an electric vehicle. Not a whole lot of people want a Tesla S P100D anymore. It's all about consumer level pricing and maximum range at this point, which Chevrolet is meeting with the Bolt (though it's ugly as shit), and the Tesla 3 will meet. It seems like a super niche market that won't be profitable. Even if you wanted a super fast electric car, who on earth would choose this, which is only slightly faster, over a Tesla that costs half the price and looks far and away better in terms of styling and amenities?

  • Everything I was about to write, you just broke into my office, pulled a knife on me, and ripped from my fingertips, and wrote down better than I ever could before I had the chance.

    And for that I will always love you.

    (Okay, it's not "love" so much as "lust", but that's close enough)

    I'm eloquent as fuck, brah.
