Normally a car manufacturer will try to make sure that the debut of the car is an event. That was true with the Los Angeles Auto Show and is true for the arrival on our shores of the real federal cars. The car companies do not like pics like that because it takes away from the magazines/reporters "scoop" of the new car, which you want them to think they have.
I assume that Donovan meant the pics will be on the revamped website, he was referring to the new official site and these pics were for that.
The good news is that it's been a couple weeks, maybe we will see a new website update any day now. With real pics of the colors instead of that thing on there now.
The user (Nazz) who posted the image is listed as a moderator on the official forum. Furthermore, two posts down paul (user name etts) claims to have taken the picture. He is also listed as an moderator on the official board. Connection?
