Holy crap - this is huge!

There is almost no camo aside from a little netting and tape here and there. I wonder if this is intentional - to soften the blow a little from ER, or perhaps now that we are out of the quiet period before ER.

Wow! Hard to tell about a nosecone because of the black car and shading. Exciting, though! Looks great to me.

Thought I'd clean it up a little bit using some quick/crude photoshop and using tail lights from previous prototype photos. I'm sure others can do better, but I feel this gives a good idea of the back of the X without the camouflage, ski/whatever box and hitch.

Here's the most revealing rear photo to me. Just look at all those gaps! There are gaps around the lights, where the front window meets the falcon door, where the falcon door meets the rear quarter panel, where the falcon door meets the rear hatch, where the rearmost side window meets the rear quarter panel and hatch...
