Any idea if the new headlamps can be retrofitted on the early 4c's?

I wonder if there's a new (opening) front to allow Targa stowage and this allows a different configuration of wing and bonnet or even a clamshell ?

I spoke to a mate who worked in Centro Stile until a while ago and hes says the car is a targa, so storage needed for the top, you would imagine.

Gives a chance for shut lines that allow for proper headlamps with a lens / housing and glue track ?

The package dictates a targa stop stowed under the hood, so opens up a revised front end structure and more mass, cue people complaining about duller steering response from the heavier front end.

They may announce that, in keeping with the car's design philosophy, there is nowhere to stow the targa roof panel. You just remove it and - extra bonus - the car becomes even lighter?
They could class it as a removable hardtop to excuse the issue.

Keen to see any headlight changes. Arranging off-the-shelf lighting elements within the concept car's headlight holes could easily be done in a way that didn't make the DRLs look like eyelashes or didn't give the car an insect's compound eyes.

Wonder how many coupe buyers are gonna ask if they can retro fit the lights

To me that first image makes it a bit more 'ordinary' looking and takes away some of the distinctiveness, which isn't a good thing to me. I much prefer it as it is now.

Does it have a dual-centre exhaust instead of the coupes single exhaust on both sides?

It would be quite ironic if people now said that the front end looks too ordinary and that they prefer the Coupe carbon headlights!

I've always liked the carbon surround headlights, they add to the individuality of it.
