The Faraday Future FFZero1 is an EV born of dreams, piles of cash, and poached Tesla talent | PCWorld

Like the Batmobile, but less practical...

"FF wants to make a mass-market EV—like Tesla, but with even more money to put behind the idea, and no patience for the slow growth of current EVs (even the top-selling Nissan Leaf has a minute slice of the overall car market).

The Tesla parallels are not coincidental. Just as Musk’s personal wealth started Tesla, another billionaire’s pile of cash led to Faraday Future’s birth a scant 18 months ago. Faraday Future also poached a very important executive from Tesla: Nick Sampson, who was Director of Vehicle and Chassis Engineering at Tesla and is now Senior Vice President of R&D and Engineering at Faraday Future. Another top executive is Global Design head Richard Kim, who had a hand in BMW’s i3 and i8 electric cars."
