Episode 3 - A Future For Faraday?

January 6, 2017

Happy New Year! 
The 50th anniversary CES kicked off in Vegas this week and one of the first big stories was a HUGE event from Faraday Future. In case you don't know who they are, they announced a "Tesla Killer" EV a year ago. They have been plagued with financial issues and written off by some as vaporware. But they came back with a vengeance when they announced the FF91

It IS a badass car! But it has been met with headlines like this one from Digital Trends: 
Faraday Future needs to start making cars, and stop stroking its own ego
Yikes! We run down all the features and specs on this week's episode. 

So, what's up with that logo? The company's initials... falling flat on their face. EEK.

Tip Of The Week

Wash your car in the garage WITH NO RUNNING WATER! This is awesome. I love washing my Tesla by hand and this makes the process painless and I can do it no matter how cold it is outside.
