Latest wheel design closeup. Looks like this one's in high suspension height.

I hate to be that guy and mention panel gaps, but I really hope that rear door is about to open or left slightly ajar, because that looks pretty big doesn't it?
Probably the door is a bit open. But then it also doesn’t quite align with the front door, and the bottom of the front door seems a bit misaligned with the top, and the front fender is showing pretty big gaps at the top.

Could they be still testing a couple of finishing methods? Maybe they are testing the finish from a couple of different methods or compounds. Pretty late in the game for that. maybe these all had finish problems so they require more finishing. But, since they still need testers, these be they.
Or, it’s not too late in game for that…

Afterall, they’re only in the last few weeks starting to do this with production tooling

Still assembled largely by hand, but now with some production tooling (incrementally more)

Those wheels are bad-ass. Really suit the vibe of the vehicle.
really like these wheels, too

however, this ring system for the aero covers is going to give that wheel finish some hell

I suspect that whomever likes these wheels, is going to want to remove the aero covers and attachment rings upon delivery - or else in no time those attachment rings are going to leave a rash

Yeah, I hate covers of all kinds. Hopefully they are a factory delete.

the window is open, so the door may be slightly ajar

These wheels would probably look Ok, and to be fair they are a little dusty and not in a product photo setting. These are a seven spoke design, but I tend to like wheels that are five or six spoke styles:

But I hadn't even realized that the original CT wheel covers were also a seven spoke design:

Still my current favorites are the CyberHex ones by Unplugged Performance that currently can be reserved, and were also previously posted by Mike of CyberOwners.com :

I'm sure there could probably be more variants but I like these the most so far.

I like those hex wheels just not the size of the tyres. Much to large for an EV.

they’s some big tires

Ought to help a little that they’re on 20s instead of the Raptor’s 18s?

Australia's end of the Monaro saw the HX 'Limited Edition' ( Not badged Monaro ) that was built with wheels like these in '76. Only 580 units were built in Sydney.
Maybe this is 'Back To The Future'

Edit: Honeycomb is BACK! SWEEEEET!

Could be a "Touch here and get burnt" warning :ROFLMAO:
Leaving it parked in the August sun is going to make it theft-proof. The steel is going to heat to searing hot levels
