Re: Faraday Future's Big Reveal

Tue Apr 13, 2021 11:00 am

The WSJ has an article that Faraday Future is going public via a SPAC.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/for-ev-sta ... 1618228812
(archived version to avoid the paywall: https://archive.is/ex1cY)
Faraday is among the latest examples of an electric-vehicle startup without a clear record of success to raise hundreds of millions in capital and go public largely based on a vision of the future of transportation, owing to the booming popularity of an investment structure called special-purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs.

We'll. We do have something coming. It's been a long hard path. The product is the real deal. Previous leadership did not get us to the finish line but current leadership is top notch and will get us there.

No but Aptera will start delivering cars within a year, according to their website. Not sure what this has to do with Faraday Future.
