I thought these were being built in Texas or mex originally. Vietnam now?
When I read Chinese was that since the beginning?
Chinese company building in Vietnam?
Hisun is owned by a Chinese businessman.
Hisun’s speed mfg line is in Vietnam.

wonder how the Hisun named cars produced in Mexico are doing

And the original 'made in usa' was Hisun texas.
Got it.
I guess if you own it you can pick your own factory regardless of what country.
That Vietnam factory looked very empty in the early pics. It was probably not even a working facility.

Wonder the cost of operation differences from factory to factory....mex, China, vietnam..

Well, none of them can even build a car without issues, so not even worth researching :)

Ummmmm...

WTF are air blades?? 🤷‍♂️
I just looked it up. They are rotary blades that spin on top of the existing fan blades to cool the motor. They pull the water from the radiator and cool it like a condenser from a refrigerator.
You can also buy the ice maker as an option. The company making it is BS Industrial.

Interesting comments on FB. I’d be uncomfortable being part of the company let alone the face of the company. Congratulations to everyone that received their car, even with problems at least you have it.

No fear the Speed sales team will be here shortly to clear this all up and give you a couple paragraph explanation along with some hints that they are regular communication with Robby (he’s their buddy) and have some inside scoop no one else knows yet. Oh and you are a hater since you posted this, you have no business even commenting on it since you obviously won’t be buying one since they somehow are infinite in knowing everyone’s purchasing intentions.

I do not think anyone has the Speed key. There was talk of Speed needing to finalize paperwork for the customers that were getting the key and also waiting on CARB approval.

Robby made a big show about giving this guy the first speed key and how they are ready to be released. That was over a month ago., What paper work did that guy sign?

It's like Biden closing the boarder, right before the election.

(Please ignore the fact, he's president for over three years already, thanks so much!)

Both are Purely political moves. The faithful will Gobble it up, stand and applaud. 👏💪👏

I wonder how Karl has fared with his investments. Saw a new 4 seater for $40k on FB market place out in AZ.

El Jefe LE Unit #579, Master#697 For Sale. $15K OBO To Me, $31,420 payoff at purchase. Car was stateside, but is now on a round trip cruise back to its original port to clear customs paperwork, post which it will return stateside for a mid-August delivery.

I just found out that my car no. 700 is on the same boat

Jared Hughes
So from a speed rep this is what’s happening. All cars stopped at the port. Having import and customs issues. All cars at the port will be shipped back to Vietnam, documents fixed and shipped back. If you’re lucky like the others in our group your car is still sitting in Vietnam and doesn’t have to make the round trip to fix whatever is screwed up

Nothing like having your rig take 2 rusty trips across the ocean.

It’s like my daughters softball team Moms. There’s always a problem and someone is always complaining because their kid isn’t playing enough. Everyone is kicking rocks🤣

It’s quality entertainment lol

You Definitely couldn't make this shit up. 👍🏼👍🏼

The biggest question I have. While the “dealer network” is not there and non existent, is speed getting new orders of these. I know they said roughly 5000 units (if you can believe anything they say) that was 1-2 years ago those numbers were being said have they received any new orders at all.

I called the other day for shits and giggles and no one answered the phone. No messaging nothing. What a way to run your business

Dont need to answer the phone if your not building cars….

Or

Maybe they have caller ID and didnt want to talk to you
Ring, ring ring (answering machine picks up)

Caller “yeah hi I’m calling to gather the shittiest info on your company so I can post about it on the internet on a few different forums. If you could get back to me with information on all your issues that would be great! I can be reached at 867 5309 thanks”.

Maybe this is the next LS swap market to infest :D
Wouldn't be the first time an awesome vehicle was produced that needed a serious motor upgrade

That guy has a history of being a unique individual.

I have no desire to own one anytime soon. If I bought one I’d have to buy three, two pre runners and one race car.

I’m satisfied with my Polaris cars for now but I wouldn’t mind the chassis and suspension of the Speed car over the Polaris as it sits today.

😁 Actually, better yet... it's 3 trips across. Vietnam to US, US back to Vietnam, then back Vietnam to US with new paperwork o_O

How many months is that tied down in a container?
