Could This Be Faraday Future’s Mysterious, 1,000HP Self-Driving Car?

Being creative is important when making a foray into the world of auto manufacturing. California-based startup Faraday Future knows this too well, and plans to shock the world when it shows up this week at CES. But we might have gotten a glimpse at this radical new concept a few days beforehand—and it’s definitely shocking.
The concept car you see here was uncovered by Twitter user @supererogatory (by way of Jalopnik), and shows what many are saying is the actual Faraday Future concept set to debut at CES. It was previewed on Faraday Future’s iTunes app, which has since been pulled from the iTunes store.


The screenshots of the app preview a number of details, including 1,000, all-electric horsepower, a 0-60 mph time of under three seconds, and fully autonomous driving. There’s also a, “customizable modular string battery technology,” though, we’re not entirely sure what that means.

Whatever the case, if real, it’s definitely a radical approach from the company slated to take on Tesla. We’ll know more about the concept when it makes its world debut at CES in Las Vegas later in the week.
