Because we're so used to any picture of a pre-production vehicle wrapped in camo and photographed at .00001 mega pixels (it keeps getting smaller) being a spy pic, so that is what we instinctively call it.

I'm not sure I like what they've done to the rear quarter of the vehicle...

It's not completely visible, but I'll try and show the comparison.



There is a sharp line on the concept that carries the rear upward, the production body appears to slope downward... it could just be the camera angle, but it worries me. The 'hindquarters' of a car is where a lot of the instinctual references to power and speed come from (horses, predatorial cats) and I really hope they don't lose that in the 5th gen :( It was one of my favorite components.

First. realize that the comparison picture you linked is not the car, but a computer generation. Then realize that Ed is covering the curved, sharp line that joins the rear-quarters to the door.

Then...don't worry. It's a crappy picture (pixel-wise), and an on-the-spot camera angle.

Also, that camo does do a really good job screwing with our perceptions of the lines.

Dragon, you have a really good point. Does anyone have a picture of the concept from a similar angle as the prototype photo?

I just grabbed the first picture I could find, probably my bad still, though, the camo car appears to have a very top-line structure to it. I hope there's a dip in the body underneath that monster hug.

One other quick note... ALL manufacturers will add 'junk' to the nose and tail of a car to hide the real proportions. I think they have a fake tail section on this car to hide production detail.

Don't sweat it too much just yet. Wait for more photos...

Yeah on the back "bumper" it looks like cloth or something that is hiding something else. Sure would be nice if they would actually give us a clue as to what the productions will look like. I mean dont jerk us around with one crappy photo that looks like it was taken with a camera phone.

I though the same thing when I first looked at it. But now I think it is because he is covering 1/2 of it up and that there is no rear spoiler. I am pretty sure that the body moldings are going to stay.
