Faraday Future Concept Leaked on iTunes App. Maybe

The mysterious, Chinese- and U.S. Government-backed Faraday Future may have inadvertently leaked some pretty important information about its upcoming concept car, set for an official reveal at the 2016 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

A Twitter user called superannuation was surfing Faraday Future's iTunes app, which was apparently released a bit too early, and came across the images in the adjacent gallery. All of them are screenshots and presumably show a good deal of info, including most of the upcoming concept car's exterior.

As you can see, the model looks like it was penned for the Vision Gran Turismo series, with a good deal of superhero-mobile design cues sprinkled on top. The two most impressive details are probably represented by the vertical tail fin that can also act as an “advanced digital canvas display,” and what appears to be a single-seat interior, like in an advanced jet fighter.

There does seem to be some method to this madness, though, as a Batmobile, pod-like concept car is one of the best vehicles to unveil as a startup car company that smelled a bit like “vaporware” until those investments started amassing.

There aren't many words about the model's specifications, but the screenshots tell us about a 1,000+ horsepower electric motor(s) with “quad core drive,” a 0-60 mph time of fewer than 3 seconds, a top speed of 200+ mph, and a “customizable modular battery string technology” thingamajig.

The cockpit seems to be designed to offer quite a decent amount of comfort for the “pilot,” whether he's actively driving it or is just driven autonomously.

We'll know more details once the concept car is revealed later on at CES 2016, but if these screenshots are the real deal, our minds have already been blown. The only question remaining refers to how many bits and pieces found on the concept will be kept for the first Faraday Future production car.
