"It sounded like a hissing note, like a restriction, something from the seventies." said Vice President of Product Planning, Orth Hedrick, prior to the update.

Part of the exhaust revisions included moving baffles within the muffler. Headquarters reportedly needed to ship 18 exhaust systems to the U.S. to be fitted onto media preview vehicles. The company spent more than a week fitting and fine tuning the exhaust so that they would have the proper sound prior to their debut.

That same hardware will carry over to the first customers cars, too, says the company. Still, Director of Corporate Communications, James Bell, admits that "it’s like 38 percent of what I would like" in regards to sound.
