No. As talked about before we are seeing them in their various stages of completion, but were all made the same way:
You can see the ribs of the steps of the 3rd pyramid HERE.
In response to this same comment by loveritas I replied:
It should be obvious the outer layer has fallen away from the other two whereas the 3rd clearly still retains its outer "true" pyramid layer.
To pan out we can see the outer layer has fallen away and still remains. When originally finished #1 would have looked like #3 just like #3 would like #1 today if these blocks were stripped away:
A different angle from the source of your PHOTO.
HERE you can see the steps starting to reveal themselves.

Also talked about at length:
Note the vertical face at the back of the exposed gash. Looking from the top of the gash down, we can see the blocks become increasingly larger, much larger than the outer blocks, as well as the fact the rows of these blocks, highlighted by the red circle, become incongruous with the courses of the outer blocks even when they are stacked in twos to make up for the height differential.
In context of the discussion what this is meant to show is that the core was originally a stepped core like the queen's pyramids. As I've talked about many times, I believe this core structure was the original which was later converted to a true pyramid most recently HERE
