To add to the long June 2015 and July 2015 summaries on Model X rumors, analysis and speculation - here in update for the highlights from August so far:

- Sighting of Model X mule wheels, with either 245 or 265/45 R 20 tires - I'm leaning on them being 265 judging by the close-ups:
OE Tires

- Rumor that Model X might have a single "60A" charger instead of dual "40A" chargers:
[rumor] MX Single 60A charger

- Rumor that front license plate would have a proper place on the Model X mule:
Rumor - Front license plate placement

- Rumor that Model X will have LED lights, including discussion of Model S mule sighting with same:
Rumor: Model X will have full LED headlights

- Delay in Model X ramp-up rumors continue to be discussed in light of the Tesla conference call and lowering of annual unit target, original rumor poster Eds posts being pulled from TMC on request by user/Tesla, and an article in the media:
Delay in model X launch? - Page 38

- Finally seeing a Model X mule riding what looks like a low suspension setting:

- Also, a sighting highlighting the importance of what lighting does to image perception - Model X looking much more owlfaced here than the very same nose in harsher light and a slightly different angle looking duckfaced:
How has Model X nose changed since 2012 - and has it changed in 2015 mules?

- Close-up images and analysis of the nose, LED lights, nosecone (which seems to be molded into the front bumper) and tires, with new concept images of the front:
