Porsche LMP1 Discussion

You all have permission to get excited! Looks official to me.
If anyone can find anymore details that would be great.
Roll on 2014!

Just watched this. Very intriguing indeed.
Minimal detail, obviously. At least we'll (likely) finally have a fair basis for petrol-diesel comparison.

Great news, although the cynical thought I'm having about the 2014 date is that that way, the R18 can have a three year career before Audi is gone and replaced by Porsche as VAG's Le Mans project.

So Audi to F1 in 2014 then? Makes sense as isn't that when the I4 is meant to become the spec powerplant?

I'll place my bet on it being a coupe with the hybrid system mated to a 3.0l flat 6.

That's most likely what will happen so we´re not gaining anything in terms of manufacturer numbers.

There doesn't seem to be any ambiguity there...official Porsche channel and all...

Now, if only the WEC didn't kill any interest in the ALMS...hopefully Porsche will design the 962 of the current era?

I'd love to think that they can both co-exist going for the win with differing technology. The Auidi guys didn't rule it out when we asked them. The regs for 2014 will be key. There could be any number of different ways to win. I'd hope that is the case anyway.

But setting their stall out like this is great and hopefully others will do the same. (I'm looking at you Ferrari).

Wasn't Joest originally a Porsche team before Audi came along?

I don't think that Audi will withdraw at Le Mans when Porsche returns. Endurance Racing with Sports Prototypes is vital to Audi's marketing strategy, while F1 isn't. F1 will also see V6-engines in 2014, and I doubt that Audi is willing to compete with a 1,5l-V6 turbo, as it simply doesn't fit to Audi (Who associates such an engine with an Audi?).

Yes of course! Joest's efforts with Porsche go all the way back to the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft in the mid-70s, Joest has been far longer involved with Porsche than with Audi.

Petrol Hybrid (Porsche) vs Diesel (Audi). That's what endurancesportscar reckon. It would be fantastic.

Diesel in 2014? Unlikely, Peugeot already anticipates a switch to petrol because Diesel will not make any sense if there`s even more downsizing.

Audi could use a turbo, while Porsche could stick to their naturally-aspirated boxer-6 engine.
