The reports that Faraday Future is dead and buried may be a bit premature. The company says it will race a FF 91 in the 95th Pikes Peak hill climb this year. It will compete in the Exhibition Class using a car that uses “production representative hardware and software” with certain modifications to accommodate the 156 turn track that has an elevation change of nearly one mile from start to finish.
Running at Pikes Peak will be part of the company’s “Testing the FF 91” video series that will document the efforts company engineers are making to make the FF 91 ready for production in 2018. The FF 91 will be driven at Pikes Peak by Robin Shute, principal engineer at Faraday Future.
