Big question will be whether is will be 2 or 4 cars running at Le Mans ala Ford which means we could see RLL join Europe team/Schnitzer.
There are strong rumours BMW (and the other two manufacturers) will decrease from 8 to 6 cars in DTM. This could mean there's room for a GTE project at Schnitzer.

Off topic, but has anyone grown really bored of DTM this season?

I would now rather see a big team like Schnitzer transfer its weight to the 2018 GTE programme.

I personally think the Z8 will be the platform, they got a lot of stick for building the chunky mother they have right now in GTLM, and Ford has changed the game somewhat with the bespoke sportscar platform they have bought in.

I like to see a big difference in touring car and GT car too, not a fan of that crossover size and shape

I agree that too. But..... BMW Z8 does not have the new model and the rumor yet. so I think new BMW M6 will be suitable .

Team Studie BOB Suzuki revealed the rumor that BMW Motorsport is planning a very big Le Mans Project below water for next year or the year after that. Team Schnitzer did not participate in DTM this year for that development.
(He made that remark as a sympathy for the victims of the Osaka earthquake that occurred today. So this rumor is very credible.)

That's good news. Maybe an engine program if it's for next year? I think it'd make more sense to do something for the new rules in 2020 so that's in line with what he said.
