According to http://www.motorsport-total.com/wec/..._13041701.html the rollout is planned for June. I agree that this is probably means post Le Mans.

Do you think the car will be "a more elaborated RS Spyder" or something very different?

Again, I would place my bets on it being quite different.

I think it will be unveiled at Le mans itself, the ACO will be keen on that and Porsche will be keen on keeping on the right side of the ACO

It's possible. It's not the style of the "old" Porsche, but now-a-days, anything is possible.

Porsche already have the ACO on their side , as the manufacturer with most wins and Norbert Singer working for the ACO .

Wouldn't surprise me to see the car unveiled at Le Mans ..... but wouldn't surprise me if it isn't either .

They could launch something at LM but I think it would be in the same vein as an F1 launch where it's far from the finished article.

Would be good to see them have some kind of presence this year - maybe do a couple of driver announcements if nothing else.

Hopefully, it's a modern version of the 911 GT1-98. That was a phenomenal car and was great looking, IMO. With modern aeros, it would still be a great design.

It's going to look like a slightly worse version of the current LMP1s.

I think there is little question that it won't look that different than the other LMP coupes that are out there now... some detail differences, but not much.

Does anyone think that it will enter a race this year?

Like Petit Le Mans?

Given Porsche's entry in the first PLM, it would be a fairy tale ending for the event on the world stage, but I can't see it happening.

The Lotus is the best comparison, rather than the Audi or Toyota. The T128 is the car the LMP1 2014 car will be based on next year.

I could live with that, it's probably the prettiest prototype going right now.

It looks like mix of Toyota and Audi to me. Maybe the black hides the fin better though.

Yes, I suspect the first words that will come to my mind will be UGLY FIN!!!!
Then I will make a concerted effort never to look at that ungodly piece of carbon fiber again.
Secondly, I will wonder why there are bits of the car missing over the 4 wheels. Then I will remember the rules; Another item that I will make a concerted effort to ignore.
Finally I will take in of what remains of the car. I hope I like it.
