Don't get me wrong, I love this car and will be getting one regardless of what it looks like (let's face it, guys, there are things I don't like about the styling of both my 3rd and 4th gen, but those details pale in comparison to the sum of all parts). Now with that disclaimer out of the way, that first pic looks a lot like the Charger (not Challenger, the 4 door) to me with all those lights crammed in that grille. I know Scott, you've said that the lights aren't final, but don't they need to test those sometime? My only guess is that they are going to be part of the final reveal, but if that's the case and the purists want what we saw on the concept, then it would make sense that we would have seen them already. Clearly the entire car couldn't be engineered in it's entirety minus the headlights, which makes me (and I'm sure others) wonder (not that I don't believe you, Scott), what the real story could be, and if Scott is allowed to tell it!

Atleast you won't have to worry about salt, they don't use salt in Oak Harbor when it snows.

Hey mods, there should probably be something in the registration process to force new users acknowledge the temporary status of the headlamps. It sure would save Scott some time.

It does look like the reverse mohawk is still there. I was wondering the same thing about the lights. Are we ever going to see a test of the production headlights? I am curious about one thing that looks different, in a couple of the pics just beyond the b-pilar there seems to be a rather long extension that goes beyond the rear window. Is this just the camo or have I been missing something? The slotted rotors are a nice touch on the back, I hope to see them on the front as well. That wheel and tire combo tuck very nicely into the fender wells. I would like to see the mufflers tucked up a little more, they seem to be hanging rather low. Great find and PLEASE keep them comming.

Maybe it's just me, but the 3rd and 4th pictures make it look like this one has a sunroof rather than an inverse mohawk.

Those will probably be in the next batch of cars. The manufacturing validation cars. These are just rough engineering cars to test systems. Not the assembly of final parts.

It looks like the cars equipped with a sunroof lose the reverse mohawk.



The solid roof cars keep the mohawk.

Yeah...it's just camo.

Is there a way when a new person is registering to the site to read a disclaimer about the headlights?!?! I don't get it, when I was new I read as much of forum before asking questions. You can't really get too far without seeing something about those darn headlights!

Just wait fbodfather, once the correct headlights are in, it'll be something else.
