    It could still be bolted on parts - remember the hole in one of the test mules?

    Besides, the test mules seem upright and bulky, very short and stubby - the dimensions for the Taycan are meant to be almost identical to the Audi E-Tron GT

    If I have time this week I'll put the dark pic from the brochure over the mule in Corel Photopaint and see if there's a perfect fit.

    Here's a shape to shape comparison of the pic released by Porsche (see page 1) and the latest mule pics.
    Although the angle of the mule is slightly tilted, the overall shape looks identical.

    There's 2 large differences I can see - you notice how the front fender curves over the wheel in the teaser, whereas it's straight in the mule? That's the largest one I can see yet.

    Second one, more slight, but the rear end on the teaser seems much longer than on the mule, and you can clearly see the spoiler in another teaser pic, whereas it's just straight on the mule

    Can you make a comparison of the teaser with the sideview of the Mission E?

    That's why I said it's tilted.
    Turn the mule more up and it'll align as it has the same curves.

    Even if you tilt the image, the mule's front fender still looks straight where it meets the A-pillar. Whereas the teaser shows a car where the fender is curved somewhat over the wheel, which will only get more pronounced as you move the camera lower

    Front and rear are slightly different but it is the same roof line.

    Agree but with the pic of the Mission E it looks like that too...

    The front fender curve over the wheelarches (if you tilt the Mission E upwards) is almost the exact same, the front end is a little stubbier than the Mission E, the rear end maybe the spoiler isn't quite so prounounced, but is still there

    I'll do a photoshop comparison of the two shortly, just to show my point
