Faraday Future FF 91 Acceleration Reaction Video


Despite the fact that the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous + mode is quicker off the line than the stripped-down Faraday Future FF 91 (and that Faraday is undergoing an onslaught of unpaid bill lawsuits – including one from the FF91’s debut at CES), it’s still entertaining to watch some passenger reactions to launching the Faraday’s extremely quick electric vehicle.

Video description:

“A compilation of passenger reactions when experiencing the groundbreaking acceleration of the 783 kW #FF91 with driver Matt Lubbers, Faraday Future Engineering Manager, during our VIP Prototype Ride event at #CES2017.”

If this video looks familiar it’s because the Model S basically made this reaction format video a classic beginning way back in the old P85D Insane mode days.

The stripped-down FF 91 zips from 0 to 60 MPH in 2.39 seconds, according to the automaker, a figure that’s considerably slower than the time quoted for the stripped, race-prepped Tesla Model S P100D Electric GT racer.

Faraday Future — “Here’s how fast your $150K+ car would go if you stripped out the interior, and put in a set of lightweight racing seats”

Makes me wonder what else they left out. HVAC system? Air bags? Side impact protection in the doors? Sound system? 5 mph bumpers? Rollover rated roof support?

“Left out”? There’s no reason to think their prototype(s) had any of those features fully implemented yet; they were too early in the process.

Exactly. Bragging that your prototype is faster than somebody else’s production car is just… Ludicrous™!

Go Tesla!

Roughly half of the riders were Asians. Was this test done in some Asian country?

I doubt the acceleration was 2.39 sec with all them people in the car. Under 3 sec, sure, but not 2.39 sec.

Well, it IS an Asian run company!

I was surprised to see that this article didn’t note that FF is circling the drain; it merely states that it has multiple lawsuits for unpaid bills.

I’d really love to see someone do a “Faraday Future Death Watch” series. That would be far more entertaining, and hopefully more informative, than the absurd, ridiculous, and FUD-filled “Tesla Death Watch” of some years past!

I’m not looking forward to FF’s failure being made into yet another anti-EV/anti-green talking point. The same way Solyndra was made into an anti-green everything talking point by the usual suspects who do such things.

Well, I hope not. They say 90% of startups failed. Among failed EV startups is CODA, Th!nk, and ZENN. I dunno if ZAP is still making cars, but it shouldn’t be, after being exposed as a multi-level marketing scam.

And Mitt Romney called Tesla one of “Obama’s failures” during a debate with President Obama. (Very nearly all companies, worldwide, would love to “fail” the way Tesla is! 😛 )

None of those has lead to a Solyndra-like propaganda campaign against EVs or “green” tech. Is there some reason to think the impending failure of FF will be different?

It’s just informational, not a hit piece, or a we told you so piece. That’s why I put it up.
Good spotting.

I think of them, FF, as similar to that zombie ant that gets its brain infected by a parasite that directs its movements. It appears to be alive and it does function like an ant but its not really an ant anymore.

I’d rather see their employees sitting in the car and having someone tell them how much their company owes their debtors, see their surprised, or perhaps unsurprised, faces.

Did you notice all the asians? Those are the employees.

It is interesting. They edit out the actual launch from stop out of most of the video cuts. In the few cuts that have the launch from a stop, many have a loud clunk. Like they have a broken mount or something at launch, and they were editing it out as much as possible.

Does this mean the racing team’s kaput?
