We got a mid-engined racing 911 now, so, yes the world is ending.

"“You could expect maybe with some races that we add another car,” Steiner said. “But it’s not only about factory racing; it’s the whole racing business.”"

Hinting at possibility of 3 cars in the enduros for Porsche GTE. D24, Le Mans, and perhaps Sebring?

There's no logic behind this, but, for me. Porsche edging the flat-six slightly forward in a 911 is nowhere near as big a deal as Chevy putting the V8 behind the driver in a Corvette. I know, I know, progress, right? But I understand that the current Vette is pretty much mid-engined anyway, in that very little of the engine is ahead of the front axle. I'm sorry, but I don't like it.
