    Is this one going to have the IAV motor in it?

    The last that was mentioned was they may or may not have the IAV in this one...This will be the template for future prototypes and they will be building up to around 20.... if it doesn't make it in time it will be in the next one...

    Does anyone have any idea of what the protrusion is on top of the newly designed fender sketch is? I'm thinking the turn indicator.

    If they are so concerned with aerodynamics why is the wiper exposed and not covered by the hood? Messed up the fenders for aerodynamics purposes, which distracted from the looks of their design. and missed the wiper drag coefficient. Can you tell I want the original fenders back? :)

    Yeah, I was hoping they would get an IAV engine in this one. Maybe P5.

    I also sent in a suggestion to move the wiper to the other side so that the water squeegeed off the window is directed away from the door seal area. Just seems more logical. And yes a lip on the back end of the hood could hide the wiper and deflect wind making it more aerodynamic.

    Won't have to wait for the P5... the P4 will be cloned it won't be a different prototype so if they don't make the IAV in this specific one it will be in the next clone.
