    I think it is also been staged. It however brought enjoyment to many of us.

      They aren't dual rear brake calipers. The smaller secondary caliper is for the electric parking brake. This is the same thing all the exotics have been doing for over a decade.

I'm going to speculate that's actually the top part of the side scoop that goes up from there to form the curve over the rear fender which would also seem to mean the the "fang" or "shark tooth" on the door is all fake and the scoop begins immediately aft of the door line. Again, IMO.
        The more I see that image of the scoop area, the more I am convinced it (the scoop) looks nothing like what everyone thinks it looks like. For example, if you look at the left side (especially near the top), why is it SO thick? There is no reason I can think of that it would need to be that thick. And then the obvious material (the white at the top and bottom) being used as filler or support, if support, that would never be visible on a production car unless they planned to cover the whole thing with mesh to hide it, which would look goofy too. And add in how far out it sticks, no other car has the massive bulging scoop like that, it would be an aero drag nightmare.

        That "cross bar" could also be some sort of temporary mounting for the door release button so they can open the door. Pretty sure I remember the video of the car in NYC, Tadge pressed something under the fang to open the door (it looked like that at least).

        I agree, the scoop begins aft the door line. There could be a small leading edge of the scoop near the top where they hide the door release, but it will not be some big wing hanging out there that some vocal folks seem to think will be there. At least IMHO.

          Going to be amazing whatever it finally is. We have so many different perspectives on, is the scoop’s shape, where it starts, whether any part of it is on the door, and even whether the entry model is going to even have a scoop. And our very different ideas could individually all be right — due to the massive camo still on the car in that area.

          Kind of like the rear spoiler, e.g., another area massively disguised.

              Exhaust system detail. That is the closest up we have seen it.
              Looking forward to our ME arriving.

                good catch John ... looks like the exhaust has valve on it similar to NPP

                  I am sure this video was a set up. GM had to allow this. They are not just leaving these cars out in dark parking lots for Dumb and Dumber to video. Again, GM throwing us off on that side scoop configuration, that isn't going to happen as we see it.

                    Assuming those are the real exhaust tips. Those would be easy to change out for production. Heck, GM could have bought some at Pep Boys for the test cars to keep us fooled.

                      It would not surprise me that the revealed tips are entirely different (nor would that disappoint me).

                        I’ll drink to that. Also a second round.

                        Not a lot new here. Still glad to see the exhaust tip part of it.
