Quote:
Financially struggling battery-electric automaker Faraday Future will cancel plans to build a $1 billion assembly complex in the Nevada desert near Las Vegas, raising further questions about the start-up’s long-term future — and costing about 4,500 planned U.S. jobs.


So much for that.

"But state officials took shots at Faraday after learning of the production delay last November. “This is a Ponzi scheme,” Nevada State Treasurer Dan Schwartz told Reuters. “You have a new company that has never built a car, building a new plant in the middle of the desert, financed by a mysterious Chinese billionaire. At some point, as with Bernie Madoff, the game ends.”"

That company was all hype from the get go. Their launch and investor parties were fraught with technical delays in showing a working prototype beyond a CGI video. Everybody and their dog knew they were selling nothing but pipe dreams while a few were just riding the seed money they had been given just partying and blowing it on more smoke and mirror events.

Ponzi scheme is right.
