Keeping in mind, they're 17" wheels and the rotors completely fill the wheel space, meaning they're between 330-350mm in diameter. Not small by any means

Man, I hate to say it, but if turns out to have the same 4x4 oem ride height with skinny wheels. I wont be interested. I hope this is just the winter setup. Also the overall look in camo doesn't really scream 55k. Next to a Cayman, I'm choosing the Cayman...so far.

Also, anyone know where the gas cap is? I can find it anywhere. Wonder if they are going to place it where they placed it on the FT1

It's about 2-3 o'clock on the RHS rear fender, you can see it in these pics

These are the snow wheels and tyres
Factory sizes are 18 and 190" with 275 R and 255 F

The side profile are the money shots for this car, but the front end still looks a little “chubby”. I hope once they remove the camo it looks a little sleeker and streamlined.

I know it's all camo'd out and such....and I know its still in testing phase, but I just can't see that "camo'd/production" car looking anything like the GR Supra Concept....I just can't. I hope they are making it look this ugly on purpose....because it just doesn't have nice lines in these pics. Again, I know this is a test car and it's packed with camo and fake panels....I just hope the real deal will look good....I really hope so.
Hellen Keller could see the similarities between the mule and race car released last week.

a few people are having trouble seeing what the car looks like under the camo wrap

two biggest things that are affecting the look is the covered glass, and the wheels

here's a 5 min /seriously dodgy indication to show how much difference windows make.

^ It would be great if the usable rear glass area was that big, but going from the shots of the race concept's back window it won't be, Toyota put a very wide black band inside the glass border on the concept; if that's also on the production car will take a quarter or more of the window out of play.

Like on the Z4 coupe?

^ Probably. There was a piece some time ago on Jalopnik or TTAC about why those black borders are needed from a manufacturing standpoint, but why do they have to be so much bigger for the back windows? Fail.

I'm guessing because there's structural members under there, but would look pox to have a small window.

Given the light weight, the hatch is probably some composite material so needs bigger pillars for strength.
