You also seem to be forgetting that Panoz got some support (though in the end half hearted) from Ford Racing, as in modern day Ford Performance, from 1997-2000.

Panoz only had Ford logos on the car through 1999. By 2000 they were entered as Elan engines. I guess you could say BMW was close enough to full time in 1999 since they only didn't show up for one race, although between the two and a Riley & Scott team winning the drivers' title it wasn't really a strong manufacturer competition.

It wasn't also the fault of Audi that when the R8 came out that BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Toyota turned their eyes towards greener pastures, namely F1 by 2000.

Nissan straight bailed on lack of results (including finishing behind the new Audis), and Mercedes downsized to DTM because there waa no championship and their Le Mans appearances were embarassments. They were replaced by Chrysler and Cadillac, which both got competitive chassis but decided they couldn't afford new engines capable of competing with Audi's purpose built direct injection race engine on both power and efficiency. Remember up until then even Toyota was using an old Group C engine.

Porsche has been testing in Aragon, here's a link to their twitter showing the camouflaged new aero. The front splitter area looks a little different imo.

I am praying that the camo means they are dumping their awful livery of the last few years.

Same to me as well.
I guess it is too early to see the major aero changes.

They should use that camo as their livery.

I think this is 2016 low-downforce kit (Le mans spec) ,the real components testing there are beneath(probably) I doubt that they are going to show us the new aero kits before Monza.

Of course not, that's the purpose of a camo livery, especially along the Mulsanne in the middle of the night.

I think the livery we saw from the Porsche GT's at Daytona will give us a clue.
