Rancho Palos Verdes in the wealthy Losangeles suburb, with a more than 700 square meter villa is located in the picturesque cliff in the villa is across the vast expanse of the Pacific ocean. This is a two storey detached villa with six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a huge garage that can stop three cars.
this villa also has absolute privacy, even Google maps can not provide the street scene in this area. Although there are so many villas in Losangeles, the difference is that it is not a rich person, but a company called Ocean View Drive.
according to a previously unpublished internal document, the villa was registered under the name of Faraday, vice president of Deng Chaoying. And the company's CEO is Jia Yueting, a science and technology entrepreneur from China, is also Faraday's major investors in the future.
over the past year, Faraday has been plagued by financial problems in the future. But Ocean View Drive, as a "shell company" in the Empire of science and technology, still owns this luxury villa, which will inevitably cause outside criticism. Introduction to Jalopnik according to four people familiar with the matter, the villa in the future Faraday inside a special nickname: "club", the
club not only used for temporary reception for new employees, at the company meeting, also can undertake some luxurious reception dinner, a private chef specialized cook a variety of delicious meal.
, a person familiar with the matter, says that drinking a 2000 dollar bottle of whiskey or wine at the party has become a routine thing. This luxurious style with Faraday

Last year, CES's regret continued to the present, and there was no sign of improvement. In addition to the frequent turnover of employees, turnover and cash flow,
is facing a new prosecution in the future, according to the unpublished lawsuit before Faraday. Of course, we have become accustomed to the prosecution content, including meals, warehouse rents, these suppliers in arrears.
