Since we have witnessed the existence of Google’s Koala Pod and the Silicon Valley’s Tesla, we expected that the future ones will launch a sleek-but-sensible sports car types. However, after watching the Faraday Future’s utopian tease video, we were somehow taken by surprise. The truth is, among lots of possibilities, we really never predicted something as ‘radical’.
Featuring a fully-electric, single-seat and door-less supercar, the car’s canopy is very noticeable since it open just like a jet fighter’s top hatch does. If the production possibilities are true, we can expect that the electric motors will have 1000 horsepower, 200 mph top speed and a less than three seconds 0-60 mph acceleration. However, having that concept is really ‘bizarre’, so we’re not expecting that the car itself will become a reality.
Adding to our skepticism is the fact that hardware details are very few, if not rare. The company says that only four electric motors, preferably one on each wheel, drive the car. The single seat cradles the driver at a 45-degree angle while oxygen and water is being delivered to his or her helmet by the Halo Safety System. The overall design is based on Variable Platform Architecture, a foundation that will definitely affect their future designs, the company says. And since the wheels are all motor-driven, the supercar will have no definite Drivetrain, though the fact remains that it can also be customizable.
