Faraday has just abandoned plans to build a factory in North Las Vegas in the United States and unveiled the renting old factory in August this year. This is the only plan for Faraday in the future. It is also the first factory in the open suburb between Losangeles and Silicon Valley, which is more than 300 kilometers away from Faraday's headquarters in Losangeles.

At the beginning of December, found the surging news reporters came to the abandoned 16 years of factory, the factory gate has been set up Faraday new signs of the future, but nearly 900 thousand square foot factory at present only one person in the care of.
Jia Yueting has repeatedly said that Faraday plans to deliver the first mass production vehicle in the future by the end of 2018.
But it's still not clear where the car will go.
In the corner of the factory, three or four Spanish - free Spaniards are working. After a lot of difficult communication, I know that they are not Faraday's future employees, but the tenants that have not moved out.

This is the beginning of December. According to the plan released by Faraday in August, in the next few months, FF 91 high-end plant will make preparations before putting into production: including planning, renovating and licensing applications. After the relocation of existing tenants in late November, the company is expected to start moving into a large range of machines in early 2018.
The factory has 55 years of history, was once a manufacturer Pirelli was abandoned in 2001.
The factory is the asset of Industrial Realty Group (IRG), a large Native American real estate agent. Its official website shows that the factory is used for sale, not lease, and covers an area of about 900 thousand square feet (about 275 thousand square meters). However, in recent years, real estate dealers have signed a monthly rent agreement with some temporary tenants to rent out the factory into small spaces.
Faraday took the whole plant in the future, but also rented to the real estate agent rather than buy it.
According to reports, in December 10, 2015, Faraday announced in the future that he will build a manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, Nevada, with a total investment of 1 billion US dollars, covering an area of 3 million square feet. The Nevada government has approved a $335 million reward scheme for Faraday, including 215 million dollars in tax credits and relief, and 120 million yuan public expense to improve infrastructure in the industrial area.
The future of Faraday's fund problem, the factory construction stagnation. Local media quoted information from Kings County in California, saying that in early 2017, Faraday returned to California in the future and rented the former tire factory.
Franklin said Faraday would now have to spend $30 million on refurbishing and refurbishing the rental plant in the future, compared with a $1 billion self built investment. He also revealed that Faraday was ready to lease it for 10 years in the future, but he did not tell the rent.
The windowsill, the doorknob, and the spider web everywhere
In August this year, Faraday's press release released in the future said that on the day of the opening of the new factory, nearly 400 FF employees and supporters spontaneously drove to the new factory building 300 kilometers away to celebrate the opening of the new factory. The California state government, municipal government and the Hanford plant officials in King County also the scene together to welcome Faraday into the future.
In November, a security engineer was sent to Faraday's future factory, but there was still no sign of starting a factory plan. He came to the factory around 9 a.m. every work day, and walked to the same door every time. But he wasn't here all day. He might negotiate with the government, the designers, the police, and attend some meetings.
The only employee in the factory goes to work with the FF logo every day.
The local government is also paying close attention to the future of Faraday's progress.
According to local media The Sentinel reported in November 16th, as of now, the urban construction department said they did not receive any plans.

In September 2017, Dag Reckhorn, vice president of FF global production, visited the local area and pointed out that before the operation, the company needed to get some licenses, which are advancing in the city. The data shows that Reckhorn is the chief executive of the FF 91 high-end factory strategy and executive.

In addition, Reckhorn also said that FF needed to confirm the fund before he put into production. He knew the past media coverage of the company's capital problems, but he said they had learned from mistakes and are studying these problems.
The biggest variable is still the capital.
Jia Yueting is looking for new financing for Faraday's future. In December 13th, The Verge reported that former employees revealed that unless Faraday introduced new financing, the remaining funds for the future will be enough for the company to support until the end of this year. In order to keep the company, Jia Yueting is still seeing potential investors and is likely to determine a new round of financing.
