test car appears to have a wart like antenna on the rear part of roof . I am not a fan wish they would build it into the windscreen like Porsches models . regarding the model car without the grill and the sketch with the chrome looking like horizontal bar is a much better look .
Unless I’m not looking in the same spot as you, I think that’s the rear break light...they had one on the proto, top of the rear view window?
As to the spoiler, that was seen on the earlier leaked supposed production cars, so would of been more surprised if it wasn’t there

The wart like antenna is definitely visible on the leaked production car photos. But yeah, I agree with you about the placement.

Sooooo what are we thinking about the brakes? To me at least in the first photo they look like Brembos. I can almost make out the logo, but they could also just be Akebonos like in the last picture I can't see a logo. The photo was taken at an angle though. If they are Brembos in first picture and if what @Houston.Z35 is saying is true, that should be the sport package right? If the last one doesn't have Brembos and are Akebonos it should be a Base? I'm thinking the three different cars are three different packages like what Houston said in March maybe a Base, Type S, and Type T. Correct me if I'm being an idiot please I'm a newb lol.

As for the grill, that's where the support beam is located behind the grill. Placing camo there doesn't block airflow. We're getting the same grill we all know and love.

As for brakes, typically....
Red = Akebono
Gold = Brembo

I was told Sport (Version S) and Nismo get Brembos, Akebonos are for Base and Touring (Version T)

Those rotors look a little bigger vs the ones with Obvious Akebonos......I think this is our White one fellas.

I know nothing about the Nismo aside from it'll have Brembos (the same Brembos the Z proto has) and be more than a bodykit and an ECU tune this time.

0 clue on when it'll come aside from it's coming.

Yeah I just looked real quick they look like the akenonos. Def don’t look like the ones from the yellow protos (gtr) I’m really hoping the sport model ones come with those brakes
