Same can be said of Porsche, though I can't exactly say that Porsche in GT3 has been that competitive outside of like Spa this year. They're not setting the world on fire in GTD in IMSA, either.

Seems like Porsche is focusing on the GTE/GTLM program. And as we saw at Spa, if Lotterer wants to run for WRT, they and Audi Sport seem to be happy to make room for him. Though the same thought can be applied to the GTE/GTLM stuff, too.

If Toyota want him, they're going to have to put up a lot of coin to buy out his VAG/Porsche contract. And Andre seems to be happy to be at VAG, aside from the Audi Sport and Porsche LMP1 programs shutting down in consecutive years.

My bets are GTE-Pro/GTLM for Porsche in the WEC or IMSA, or maybe going back to Audi Sport and run GT3 cars.

Of course, what that has to do with Toyota (since TMG will likely retain at least most of their current driver line up) is beyond me aside from rumors and Lotterer's past connections to Toyota in Japan with Super Formula and Super GT.
Not just past, but current He still runs TOM's Toyota in Super Formula.

No, I just think everything is relative. For example, TCR is a great set of series. But if Lotterer left WEC and went to TCR, I'd consider that a step down, and in comparison, 'lackluster'.

Sorry, I've tried FE. I just don't find it fun. It has an odd tone where it pretends it's incredible and then everyone drives like a BTCC driver on an overdose. Hoping Electric GT will be better.

If Toyota isn't an option for Lotterer then I'd be looking to see if any P1 teams, or IMSA teams (Mazda Team Joest...) are interested.

It would be great if, wherever he went, he could have the weekend off and drive at Le Mans. I doubt it's likely, but Toyota would be great.

Hopefully Electric GT will happen first.

But how well might VAG like Lotterer at another factory team (in IMSA), even if they're not involved. Super Formula's different because VAG (like every other foreign automaker) has a small market share in Japan and it's not nominally a factory squad.

On another note, who might be Porsche FE's other driver (Jani obviously set to be one)?
