Not just the rocker panel, but the nose, too.

That's padding and the base of the optional front external golf bag storage package (just lay the bag down flat behind that 'lil bump - special Corvette badges bungee cords hold it down).

For those who simply have no other car in which they can drive to the golf course.

That is padding holding the grill cover, same on the rear.

But note how short the nose is.

Also note the definitely square shaped steering wheel... Didn't someone on here earlier state there would be a square steering wheel and gave a pretty detailed description of the interior? I'm not one to believe rumors like that, but just pointing out an interesting observation.

Looks like it could be ‘Squircle’ shaped to me, just like the exhaust tips.

The steering wheel was well known before Zerv showed up here.

The padding must be for the 'Bumper Car' model.

We can agree that it's a coupe, right? Look at the rear hatch part lines, the roof line, and the lack of rear camera nub.
