This was a big one. Fara­day Fu­ture (or FF as peo­ple kept short­en­ing it to) talked a lot of smack about the big­gest player in the elec­tric car game, Tesla, be­fore the un­veil­ing of their con­cept at CES. They said it wouldn’t only be more ef­fi­cient, but it would be quicker as well. Four quad­core elec­tric mo­tors were to pro­pel the FFZERO1 to over 200 mph, zero to 60 in less than three sec­onds and boast over 1,000 horses.

When I got to FF’s dis­play, it was packed. So many peo­ple stand­ing around the FFZERO1. So many peo­ple get­ting in the way of my cam­era… I couldn’t blame them too much though – I mean, just look at it. It’s gor­geous!

So, you may be ask­ing, “When can we see one of these things on the road?” Well, the an­swer is never. This con­cept doesn’t run and there is no pro­duc­tion ver­sion planned. What FF is plan­ning, how­ever, is a mod­u­lar ve­hi­cle plat­form that can be ex­tended or shrunk to ac­com­mo­date a full ve­hi­cle lineup; from a sports coupe to a full-size SUV. They could be the com­pany to give Tesla a run for its money – if they can pro­duce some­thing that runs by 2017, that is.
