My big takeaway: "Probably before the end of the year."

Sure, it's not a promise, but it's still good news in my book.

Yes. After all this time, seeing "Probably before the end of the year" was music to my ears.

There are some really good-looking designs there (a few I wasn't too keen on, but that might be just the top-down view).

Thanks for sharing, Phil.

Agree that it's quite difficult to visualize the cars from only a top down view, but very fun nonetheless!

We are going for variety in the designs, not all the same. Just like real cars, if we do this right, there will be cars that someone loves at the same time that someone hates that same design.
