The panels have to attach to the rest of them, and that's probably where the tighter folds are.

It'll be interesting to see where they are; the edges could be folded over to provide tube shapes to mount hinges and each other to.

When bending annealed SS (3mm thick) you typically will require a 1-2 T (Thickness) internal bend radius. Externally this is a 6-9mm radius yet the observed bend radii on the CT seem much tighter. Since the 30x will be ~ half hard I expect there will be internal cuts where the shallow bends are and this will allow much tighter external bend radii to give the CT the stylistic creases it has on the sides. But I have not seen any part of the CT that appears to have 90 degree bends or tabs.
However, I can only see a certain level of detail from photos.

Maybe bends just on the front "grill?"
Nah, no 90 degree angles there, were you thinking of the 90 degree transition between the frunk and the grill area? Thats the light strip all the way across.

Most of the hard edges are seams where 2 pieces join.
