Scoop is still a gigantic question mark.

It appears (from my interpretation of the camouflage side scoop) that the scoop is fake.

can see some "potential" details here...

Should be very interesting to see the real design in a few weeks!

Looks like a heat exchanger to me....

I am actually thankful they put that there. Many are saying on the original cad it did not have them there, they were only in the back.

That might have been the case in the beginning, I'm glad it is no longer the case now.

Twin turbo car? Odd to see a heat exchanger up front if NA as the leaked CADs suggest they’d be more in the rear where the blue boxes are (in the CAD).

I doubt the white screen is the actual exchanger. It would get awfully beat up if left uncovered there. When the "fake panel " is removed that white area would be out in the open. I am fairly certain that is simply a temp cover.

you might be right but that has to have something behind it otherwise it would blow right on through..

I am HOPING a heat exchanger is there. Ferrari does it that way, its a good place to put one, and then another one in the back of the car on each side also.

The exchanger is back there.. I just don't think the white thing is the actual surface of the exchanger.(if that is what you were saying) No doubt some nice trim grating cover piece will fit in there.

When he was looking into the rear wheel area I wished he got on the ground behind the tire and showed the rear subframe and all the goodies around it.

So many opportunities were missed. Nobody was around, I would have stayed there getting a super in depth video until somebody came. This was literally a once in a lifetime opportunity and he just blew it.

There certainly was a lot of deception in the front as well.

Not a conspiracist but this may have been an orchestrated leak. They spoke exactly like my 14 year old but also were curious about the scoop. All of my youngsters love cars but they would not have been clued in on the camo and what it is hiding.

Exactly my thoughts. If the car was in a public place, it's a fair game... Perhaps, they were too excited by the encounter?

I'm calling staged. Showed just enough to further discussion and casually placed online without an effort to sell. Good to see GM is still having fun playing the game in stringing us all along.

I am thinking this may be a staged leak too. Also, doesn't that sound like a C8 in the background too? That exhaust sounds just like the C8s we have heard under acceleration
