Faraday Future Just Hired The Designer Of The Only Good-Looking Toyotas In Recent Memory

The FT-HS, which didn’t become the next Supra no matter how badly we wanted it to.

It looks like somebody at Faraday Future liked the look of Toyotas, or at least their concepts. The maybe-Tesla challenger has hired Toyota’s studio chief designer, Jin Won Kim, to head up exterior design.

Kim will work beneath Richard Kim, Faraday Future’s current head of design. Jin Won Kim graduated from the ArtCenter College of Design, according to Electrek. He is responsible for both the Toyota FT-HS concept and the Toyota Furia concept.


Kim’s designs are clean and fresh—exactly what a futuristic electric car company that’s trying to compete with Tesla needs. It’s also interesting to see Faraday Future claim yet another hire from a mainstream manufacturer.

Now, we’ll just have to see what FF’s car looks like. When it comes out.

Any day now.
