I think this makes the most sense.

I think the most obvious reason we could see something closer to the original Enterprise design would be that the ship gets a refit after taking much damage in a climactic space battle.

Default it's only my opinion but...

maybe we will see the old Enterprise at the end of the film in a divergence sequence showing both Enterprises splitting into their own timelines.

*I can't shake the feeling that...
At the end of the movie we'll see something more like the classic Connie.
So I have a feeling in the end all will be "Back to normal"*

Then I'd say you have a very bad feeling about that.

Cool theory!

I guess there could be a saucer separation and everything but the saucer will be rebuilt

I have strong doubts that they destroy any part of the NEW E during this film.

Slight battle damage, maybe.

Since they're trying to make movie that's accessible to un-initiated audiences, they're not going to waste half the film catering to obscure fanboy obsession by detailing why the hypospray is a different shade of silver, or why Bones' hair is parted on the wrong side. There'd especially be no point in having history 'reset' at film's end, so that no-one remembers what happened and none of the events actually took place.

Maybe the original Constitution design will show up on a schematic, or some artwork inside Starfleet headquarters - but the ship herself isn't going to have a Sailor Moon transformation sequence where she turns into the forty-year-old design from the Original Series. It's about as likely as the 'timeline getting reset' and giving all the characters the same faces and the same cheap uniforms as the original cast. It might placate one or two tragic figures in the audience, but for everyone else it'd just be a serious case of the WTFs.

I think it was in an Orci interview that he said that the movie takes places after Nemisis. And that the reasons of the changes is becuase of time travel. So I have a feeling in the end all will be "Back to normal"

I just can't shake that feeling same kind of feeling I had after Gen when I told my brother by the next movie Data will be able to turn off his emotion chip.

I personally hope you are right

Actually, that's a pretty good feeling. It would be awesome if the movie had a "Yesterday's Enterprise" type ending. After all, Orci did say that "Yesterday's Enterprise" was a big inspiration for this movie. So it is very possible.
