who are these prospective customers?We've had an overwhelming demand with 64,124 reservations already collected globally in less than 36 hours.
Promise money doesn't pay the bills. I'd be worried about their future. Do they even have a present? :huh::angel:Looks like they have some issues beyond design:
Faraday is counting the people who plunked down $5000 (if any) and everyone who signed up for the no-deposit-necessary "reservation" to get on the mailing list. They did not differentiate between the two in their announcement and I think it's fair to assume that the overwhelming majority of "reservations" do not signal purchase intent.https://twitter.com/FaradayFuture/status/817068154845360129

When is KA delivery data on an actual Revero?
Dealers (such as Rusnak) are claiming deliveries end of Jan so not sure how this meshes. :huh:On getting things off the ground
We’ve made 50, 60 cars, so we’re still in the engineering part of the production that goes to high mileage testing, miles on the road. Software, over-the-air updates, debugging, validation testing—all of that. Cold weather testing—some of my guys drove up here over Christmas and produced a pretty good long list of cold-weather testing [issues]. As far as the plant’s considered, it’s validated, and it’s moved through its stages. We’re still in the final stages of engineering validation, so you should be seeing cars in the next few months.
I passed a Revero on the 73 in Newport Beach the other day, and it started to follow me down to Bristol St. and was trying to get my attention. It ended next to me at a signal light, rolled down the windows and there were 4 suits in the car. Some small talk and the driver said they were the engineering team. He mentioned that they were still working out some 'bugs" in the vehicle and they should be available in a few months.
Hate to say, but the white Revero looked pretty sweet. The slight refinements to the body really stood out to me. Too bad about the ridiculous price tag.
Since when was Newport Beach a normal city lol.. I think it is one of the most abnormal cities in America with regards to median income, dispensable income and just overall wealth. I also think Newport is probably one of the most car-centric cities in America. That is pretty nuts to make that claim. I think the issue is more the company than the industry.. There are plenty of auto manufacturers with head quarters in California, Mazda, Kia, Hyundai, Tesla design etc They have no problem hiring in the area.One would think it would be an easy sell to [entice job candidates] to come to California. But it’s not. Detroit feeds on itself, loves itself and people love living here and being in the industry. You go to a normal city, like Newport Beach (Calif.) where we are, and it’s not as auto-centric and consumed with the business. Funny enough, we’ve had quite a challenge drawing people out.
I just want the grill, which should fit they said. You would need to replace the grill and chrome inserts.You will likely be able to purchase the front and rear fascias separately and upgrade your current Fisker Karma in that manner. Shouldn't be that expensive maybe ~4k
Their HQ is on bristol/redhill...currently so that is why you probably ended up in the same spot.
If you saw the original Top Gear segment, you should know that the moustache on the front of the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust was a thinly veiled reference to the Fisker Karma.
I did back in 2010, when Fisker was not the household name it became two years later, and my recollection is that the moustache was a tribute to the actor Peter Bowles, whose picture featured prominently in the TG Mood Room.If you saw the original Top Gear segment, you should know that the moustache on the front of the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust was a thinly veiled reference to the Fisker Karma.
