Thanks for sharing. The CT looks especially good under overcast skies. Really impressive!
Just imagine when these start rolling down streets all over the country.

It is an excellent picture. Is this a new prototype? The panel gaps look really uniform. Everything looks finished. The running boards look more pronounced at this angle as well.

Also at the risk of second false alarm, the frunk looks like it will open near the bottom. I can't wait to see that space.

The one pictured in the first post is the same one that was on stage at Giga Texas and is the most up to date we've seen. They also had a rougher looking prototype that was on static display at Giga Texas which is what you're likely referring to, you can tell by the different wiper.


The indentation on the tailgate is the only improvement (aesthetically speaking) when comparing the newer prototypes to the OG, it makes the rear look less "heavy" by breaking up the large flat panel that makes up the tailgate.

There must have been 2 trucks in Michigan or they have different rear doors on opposite sides. The forward facing camera at the rear door is mounted different. Or it might be just a artifact from the Twitter video

Just Twitter's godawful compression I'd say. Also, there's no camera on the C pillar just a button to open the door.

The wheel arches are different. The older ones have one surface, this new on has two surfaces, one short perpendicular one next to the body then the angled one to the outside edge. Also panels look much better fit and finish, and the front bumper seems different too.

Yes I think this is a new prototype. The lights on the tailgate appear to be recessed vs flush on earlier prototypes as well.
