Some articles say the Volt's production form will be seen in November.
The article in autobloggreen.com says the debut of the production form will be in October at the Paris auto Show.

General Motors has rather quietly released two new shots of the production Chevy Volt.
We get a glimpse of both the front corner and the very rear of the game-changer, which is expected to be shown in production form at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October.

GM hasn't scared me off yet. I think I could be seen in it, at least from what I've been able to see so far, i.e. a left front quarter and rear emblem. Now, how about a full side view please.

I think it's just about what I expected. Not sexy show car, kind of a regular car with bits of the old one left. Really too bad they couldn't have kept the sexy concept look, it would have made it a lot easier to get people to line up for the big price tag. Anyhow, so far it beats the hell out of the Prius for looks.:cool:

Not bad

After watching the leaked video that Lyle posted (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daec5BwoQ3M) I'm pretty happy to see the similarities between the concept and production version. Based on the images of the driver's side mirror it looks like the car will have something on the upper part of the doors, whether plastic or paint, that approximates the concept appearance. A few grabs from the video are below.

Lip neat but...

The lip around the spoiler is a neat way to reduce drag.
It also is going to be a good place for mildew to form and dirt to collect, unfortunately.:)
