Correct me if I'm wrong, but those wheels in the teaser vid seem to be the BBS wheels that were standard on the GRY Circuit Pack, but not the "base" GRY. I hope this means that the torsen diffs that came standard on the circuit pack are included as well!

EDIT: Nevermind... In the fender pic, you can guesstimate how many spokes are on the wheel and they appear to be more than 10 spokes (which are on the BBS Circuit pack trim). Bummer... Really thinking the diffs wont be offered on the car, at least not on the base model. And I highly doubt the first year model will have multiple trims.. Ugh...
Still excited and grabbing one though, maybe ill hold onto it for a tear and trade it in on a 2024 model year if the diffs are available on a "circuit pack" trim.
