Ever since the first "Vision GT" I've disliked those concepts... if you can call them concepts at all. People and particularly "gamers" drool over those without realizing it is quite a diferent thing to make a race car that exists only virtually and the performance numbers are basically fiction.

That's different. These Vision GT cars and other concepts (the Red Bull/Adrian Newey one) they've asked are purely made for the game without any intention to ever build them in real life.

The Lexus vision gt is pretty close to the race car version.

Adding to what PascaLM said, Autohebdo reporting Peugeot is abandoning Dakar after next year.

DSC article on “Why Peugot Sport isn’t coming to the WEC.”

Sample quote:
Quote:
And finally, in Auto Hebdo’s most recent feature about Peugeot Sport’s decision, it explained that the lack of full technical regulations for 2020 was key in its choice. Without a full rule set, Peugeot felt it could not truly understand whether or not a cut in budget for the programme was possible.

The manufacturer asked for a standardised plug-in batteries for the manufacturers in LMP1 and substructures for the cars, both requests which the ACO has not made a firm decision on.

This, plus the lack of confidence in the competition in the WEC for 2020, meant rallycross, and specifically the allure of e-WRX, was enough to prevent Peugeot from green-lighting a return to endurance racing.

Aside from all of the above though the DSC Editor has established that there were very active plans for an announcement of an LMP1 programme by Peugeot which was due to take place at the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours – that announcement though was pulled for unspecified reasons, industry source suggesting that PSA’s looming emissions scandal may have played a part.
