GTA Online's recent Summer Update added some extra content to the long-running online sandbox, but it seems more content was cut.
This comes from Twitter user @Wildbrick142, who spotted some new vehicle customisation options among other things.

time for a tweet train of vehicle-related #cutcontent in #GTAOnline #LosSantosSummerSpecial. there's a lot.— WildBrick142 (@WildBrick142) August 21, 2020
starting with modparts before going onto entire vehicles;
-roof scoop for the club
-"Carbon Skirt" for the penumbra (explained in next tweet)
-5 yosemite bed mods

It's unlikely we'll ever know why the content was cut, and there's always the chance it'll be added in the coming weeks, but the concept of datamining remains incredibly interesting and fruitful nonetheless.
