Technology: Tesla’s New Semi Truck And Roadster (Video)

Aw c’mon maaaan! Real-life Tony Stark (aka Elon Musk) had his company whip up a couple of new future whips… and one is a TRUCK????! A damn SEMI??! Wow!

Elon Musk unveiled Tesla’s new Semi truck and (in a surprise) a second-generation Roadster. The truck is supposed to get 500 miles per charge, while the Roadster is said to achieve 620 miles.

Technology: Faraday Future’s Unveils Its Supercar Concept (Video)

Faraday Future’s FFZero1 concept car is already a star for what it is trying to do! to be sure. Plus it got leaked hours before the big concept’s debut…man, you know something’s big when there is hate out the gate.

Unlike most other car startups, Faraday was founded in the living room (not the garage) of Nick Sampson, the company’s senior vice president. The company is run by an executive team; not some stuffy CEO. And the team is extreme four former Tesla staffers and head of design Richard Kim, who was a founding member of BMW’s electric car unit.

Now… the car. One thousand horsepower ELECTRIC car. Able to do zero to 60 MPH in under three seconds. Will be connected to all kinds of tech, like the most awesome living room on the road (so damn a traffic jam, you can just jam…or chill). And it will be easy as pie to design and manufacture more – line designs that take months (not years), with multiple models available.

Sounds more like iPhones than automobiles. Hope they can do it without ‘doing it’ to our pockets too hard though. We’ll see in a couple of years, when the first Supercars should be ready for market. But for now, just watch and be amazed!

And after the jump… the big reveal of the Faraday Future FFZero1 concept!
