This news also comes soon after some of Faraday's camouflaged prototypes were spotted testing. Based on the photos, the test vehicles appear to match the silhouette the company showed months ago. Even if those prototypes didn't look like what they first previewed, seeing any running prototype is a strong sign. And it's certainly more reassuring than the fantasy supercar the company showed at CES.
With functioning prototypes and plenty of employees working on bringing a car to reality, it seems Faraday Future has the underpinnings required to develop a production automobile. There's still room for some skepticism, as they still haven't officially shown anything about their production car, nor is there any guarantee that they can bring it to market. Still, it's an intriguing and positive sign for the company.
