Each month that goes by, Faraday Future is looking more and more like a legitimate automaker.
Given how many ambitious startups have tried to enter the automotive industry in the past decade, there are valid reasons to be skeptical about Faraday Future. It has, for the most part, been shrouded in mystery until it came out of nowhere and unveiled an outrageous concept car earlier this year at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. Since then, the company has continued to make headlines and, most recently, broke ground on its $1-billion facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Now, Business Insider reports that Faraday Future has hired former Ferrari executive Marco Mattiacci for a top leadership position. Mattiacci led Ferrari North America and Ferrari Asia Pacific between 2006 and 2014 and an official announcement is expected to be made this week.
It’s unclear exactly what role Mattiacci will take with the new American automaker, but this is the latest of interesting events surrounding Faraday Future. The company already has former Tesla executives in management positions and is backed by a Chinese billionaire who runs LeEco.
