Faraday Future has hit another rough patch (and no, they still haven't built any production cars): The luxury EV startup that previewed a 1,050-hp EV last year is cutting employee salaries by 20 percent, in addition to laying off other employees.

"Contrary to what Evergrande has told the press and its shareholders, neither FF’s CEO YT Jia nor anyone else 'manipulated' the board of Evergrande in reaching these agreements. In agreeing to bring a portion of its payments forward to 2018, Evergrande had a full understanding of why the funds were needed, and when they were needed, in order to achieve production and delivery of FF 91 in 2019.......
