They all seem to think sportscar racing is the place to be. Why not stick around if they possibly can...

They must have came up with a sweet set of regulations in that manufacturers meeting.

They said "works entry" right. Does Roger Penske qualify as a works entry? Surely theyll involve him right? Or at least let him run in american lemans series right?

And in an interview with Adrian Newey, I think linked in the V6 for 2014 thread, Audi was a driving force for the I4s and now that they have supposedly backed out the teams, including veto powered Ferrari, agreed to the V6 formula that they mostly preferred.
I more feel we could see both Audi and Porsche in the LMP ranks together but they probably won't be able to race anywhere but the WEC by the time the Porsche project comes out. Don't think we'd see Porsche drop the money making 911s to let Audi take the R8 GT racing, plus with Ferrari/Corvette and whoever else shows up already running Porsche leaving wouldn't do much.

So First Porsche.....Who might be next?(Toyota of course). then Nissan/Renault? I'd prefer a nissan P1 because that would have the ability to run in america. Renault is unheard of in america. itd be like peugeot.

MitchZ06 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
In no particular order I'd like to see:

Aston P1
Nissan P1
Toyota P1
Honda P1
Peugeot P1
Porsche P1
McLaren P1

7 manufacturers (likely to be only 3 of those above...) competing at Le Mans for overall honors would be a wet dream...

Interesting that you added Mclaren to this list. You might be on to something.

Toyota is likely, Nissan at least maintains a steady presence among the LMP ranks but Honda is already on their way out in LMP2 - So not very likely.

Aston may be around in some form or another but competively? Not unless they throw major money at their effort..

Peugeot already talks about 2014 so they´r most likely still around then.

We´ll probably end up with at least 3 manufacturers in 2014 ( Porsche/Peugeot/Toyota).

I wonder if Porsche's plans were one of the factors that gave the ACO the confidence to launch the WEC... they must have some long-time planning going on to make sure it dosen't turn out to be a Ratel-like failure.

Theres probably a bunch more manufacturers that we don't know about that have said they would come if the WEC was made.

They won't be back unless there are some massive regulation changes coming up. They do wanna compete for overall honours, but only with machinery that resembles their actual road car models.

Porkies back at the front, yey. Spyders never really catched my imagination.

For those that think this means Audi will be headed to F1 in 2014, I suggest you read some of the Adrian Newey comments that he made regarding future F1 engines and Audi, and If he is right it sounds like no chance they will go.
