Faraday Future Claims 64,124 Reservations For FF91, Doesn’t Confirm # Of Paid Reservations

Faraday Future recently released a tweet stating that the company had already (in under 36 hours) taken 64,124 reservations globally for the newly revealed FF91.

Faraday Future recently released a tweet stating that the company had already (in under 36 hours) taken 64,124 reservations globally for the newly revealed FF91.

This tweet was followed by queries from some of those possessing Twitter accounts about whether or not these reservation figures related to paid reservations or not. No answer was forthcoming, which is interesting because the operator of the Twitter account continued to reply to other comments, just not to those asking whether the reservations figures related to reservations that required a deposit or not. …

I’m not going to speculate too much here, but that seems to imply only one thing.

Here’s the reservations tweet from Faraday Future:

So what do you think? Marketing fluff? Is it simply that the operator of the Twitter account doesn’t know, so can’t answer? Doesn’t have authorization to say so? Is Faraday Future really just some elaborate shell-company scam?

I really can’t tell what is going on with the company at all. … Two of CleanTechnica‘s writers were on hand at the recent unveiling event for the FF91 at CES 2017, and neither of them had any very negative comments to make, but they also weren’t very enthusiastic.

I can’t really shake the feeling that something is, from the foundation on up, not right with the company. Maybe I am completely wrong about that, though. Regardless, the company’s approach to marketing and PR leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
