    I'd bet the Ferrari is Hot Rod.

    - If bumblebee is that Datsun then he's just reformated himself temporarily as a disguise and to keep an eye on Sam- but due to the mass of the car mode if it's a Transformer at all I'd guess Skids.

    I'm doubtful it's a Tranformer at all though.

    I can see a situation in context where Skids & Mudflap keep swapping modes...

    They could come in to the movie as a non-rusty Icecream truck split up Mudflap becomes the new car mode and skids changes to the old Datsun, then he's involved with Sam then later he matches his mode to Mudflaps (or vice versa) .

    But that's just a possible explanation.. I think the movie won't make a big deal about the Datsun and it's probably just a sight gag.

    My Theory

    Ok here is my theory about the Datsun:

    I dont think it is Bumble Bee, I dont even think it's a transformer of any kind. In ROFT Sam expressed a desire for a normal life, he also said that Bumble Bee needed to be with Optimus and the other Autobots. I think Sam leave's them all behind and tries to presue this "normal life". He lands a job with Hotchkiss Gould Investments, where big wigs roll pretty in Jaguars and Aston Martins, but Sam bought his beater Datsun because it reminded him of Bee.

    His co-workers obviously will give him a hard time about it, especially when it wont start... but the car will be forgotten all together when the Autobot's Scoop Sam and his friends away for yet another crazy adventure.

    I think the Datsun, the Jag and Aston (or the 2 Aston's, which ever it is) arent going to be characters nor will they be all that important to the overall movie.

    This is just my Theory anyway, and I know I'm probably WAY off, but it's fun to try and figure stuff out. I always do that when I watch a movie, try to figure out whats going to happen next.

    "HOTCHKISS GOULD INVESTMENTS", eh?

    I smell Jewish stereotypes for Bay to make.

    my theory is that somehow they have time traveled backwards so BB had to take on a new form in order to keep his cover :)

    This is not the bee. It seems like in these pictures Sam has just got a real job and is broke and could only afford a cheap car that resembles bumblebee, who is perhaps off somewhere else doing important things to save the world and can't be there to drive sam around at the time. Surely NOT a transformer, just Bay humor.:2c:

    This movie is shaping weirdly. I hope it's not Bay trying to screw the franchise since it's his last TF movie.

    That Datsun must be Bumblebee as he can change his altform whenever he wants. If it's not, then Sam is having some serious mental problems with yellow cars with black racing stripes.

    I like the 510, their pretty bad-ass, as a matter of fact an Autobot in my Fan Fic Intiation of the Facisimile is a '71 Datsun 510 wagon. He's a 'Gay Autobot' LOL. I got a very high quality drawing of what he would look like, and the artist made sure to capture certain features of the car into his Robot mode, scan through the thread and you'll eventually come across the pic.

    Somebody said it was a "step down" from the 79 camaro. That person has never priced 72 510s.

    Bumblebee movie 1 redone

    I think that for the beginning of the movie Bumblebee will downgrade to this car. We won't see him as the Camaro in the beginning but this car instead. Later on he will upgrade back to the Camaro with the all new paint job and drop top.

    My bes guess is that it's Shia's car in real life, going from a 2010 Camaro to a Datsun is a downgrade

    Could it be possible that this movie will introduce a new human adversarial element?

    I think it would be really interesting to see an organization like the Machination from the IDW comic series come into play, and bumblebee has to take a new form to hide from them.

    Well, okay, but if they're so expensive, then there's little justification to the theory that Sam is only driving this car because it was "all he could afford".
