    Yeah, but I think that's because they were taken at different camera angles

    The second one is where the camera angle is much lower, so the spoiler becomes less pronounced as it's less visible, and so the whole profile of the car is distorted. That's one of the things that most intrigues me about the Mission E, it was designed in such a way that the profile can distort somewhat as you look at it from different angles, it's hard to explain, but it's designed in such a way that the profile can distort whichever angle you look at it from, but it adds to the feeling of a 4-door supercar - many cars are four-door coupes, but the Mission E is a 4 door supercar, as the Taycan will be.

    Both images are of the Mission E concept, but in the first one the camera angle is a little higher, whereas in the second one it's lower, and the profile of the car looks different - not much, but some of the curves are more pronounced in different ways.

    A few degrees difference in height yes, but it would rather be the distance from the car. I guess they were really close and used a wide angle lens for #28 pic. Bit misguiding though, makes the car look VERY short and with the wheels very far out. Which again makes the wheels look enormous. Bit strange the wheels don’t look a bit elliptical though.

    They should only use a lens that resembles the human eye IMO.

    If you look at the spacing tire-wheel well you see that it's very uneven = taken very close to the car with a wide ange lense.
