So, Faraday Future designed a logo that looks like several others, and they designed a skateboard that looks like all the others, and they know how to produce a rendering, and they can 3D print a car-shaped object ...

A single seat "race car" with a clear bubble - who the heck would buy that?

Batman, when he's had enough of his sidekick.

Me? Not the clear bubble - I think whoever designed that has never been in the western US in the summer - and maybe 100 hp instead of 1000, but yes, I certainly would consider buying a single-seat vehicle. Especially if it's reasonably low to the ground with comfortable semi-reclining seats, instead of the way up in the air, bolt-upright seating of most cars today.

Found the link to this FF in an Elio ad. Yes "skateboard" frame; but Chinese people have built entire towns in month that nobody moved into. I am not a bit surprise about this vehicle springing up quickly.

All through 2000 to 2010 beginning with Zap China was very much into EVs, and learned how not to do it. Maybe they improved.
