“Push to Pass”… that’s interesting. Sounds different too.

I noticed this in the prototype way back. It's a 10 second boost of sport plus power. A button in the middle of the sport chrono.

It doesn’t appear that the interior is redesigned at all.

Realize that there are still covers over the lower half here (at least I hope so!!), and being somewhat repetitive but, assuming those headlight covers are final, man do I prefer the current design over this 'makeover' - night and day imo (regardless of efficiency benefits)!

For some reason can’t open it. Which version did they drive? was it the GT high end one and that’s why projected mileage is low?

The GOM would adjust to recent driving history, so if they'd been canning it you'l see low predicted range, if they'd be trundling around a city you'd see high range. Ignore it.

I also prefer the current design.

I think the deign change is not only to improve aerodynamics and efficiency.

In snowy winter conditions, snow tends to get trapped around the headlights and starts to build up.

This can eventually lead to snow blocking the headlights.

IIRC it had Turbo on the door sill plates. The predicted range was probably low due to the atypical use it gets as a test vehicle (as an extreme example, the current Turbos can drop to less than 50 miles range on a full battery in track use), but assuming that it had previously been driven more in very enthusiastic road driving rather than attacking a racetrack, a more normal use range might be around 50% more than that 213 miles, which would give around 20% more overall than the current model.
