    I'm getting more excited by the day. The car just looks better and better every time I see it ... even in camo.

    Look at this view! The duckbill spoiler and short rear end look so good! Based on the reflections you can also see the nice curves that are going to extend from rear of the doors into the rear wheel fenders.

    If you zoom in on some of the other more detailed spy shots you can see they have something screwed in covering up the bottom part of the door. I hoping for an air vent/duck/intake or whatever you want to call it.

    I can also see where they drilled a panel on, but I'm having a hard time imagining a duck there with such a small space between the door and wheel arch.

    Does that look right, or am i seeing things here?

    I have been looking for evidence of the retractable spoiler on these test mules, this looks like one of the first times that it has caught my eye.

    Here is a 20 min quickie I did on paint. Its not perfect but you guys get the idea of how a possible air vent could look. While I was at it I shorten both the hood and wheel base to better match the prototype.

    Didn't notice that. I thought it was gonna be a hatchback but I see those lines you pointed out. Curious if the trunk layout has more structural rigidity than a hatch.

    naw, look at some of the other photos of the trunk, it is a hatchback..they covered the edges of the rear window with camo so what you're seeing isn't the start of a retractable spoiler, it is where the rear window ends.

    The bolted on panels are more likely to be camouflage panels designed to obscure the shape of the car, rather than evidence of vents or actual body styling. The panels on this mule seem to be less fat than some of the older ones, so you can really start to see the shape of the car as a whole. It looks sexy!

    This is what a Supraforums member and Toyota employee said on the matter.

    If any forum member spots the mule in Cali, pull in front of it...get out and approach the driver as if you are going to mug him...point your gun at his face and demand to know the powerplant specs.

    I'm still hoping for air vents. Its worth noting that the LC mule had a lot of them covered up.
