I like the coupes look more than the Spyders.
But in these times, I'll take any Prototype there can be raced!

I wonder will Porsche make customer cars available of their new prototype?
They usually do after a year or so.
If I were looking at P1 that is the route that would most likely offer the strongest package but probably cost more.

Waiting on a Porsche would be a big gamble to take. If I was a betting man I'd say a customer car isn't coming. Plus as you say you'd be waiting for a long time. If someone wants to come into the series in the big class relatively cheaply and learn the ropes the Perrin might be a good bet.

Cost would likely be the reason you took this over an OAK/Dome/HPD but there's sometimes value in running something different to the rest.

Ok, your right but, right now (i mean 2014) i can only see a "rich" LMP2 team doing it. But in other hand that LMP2 rich team would stay in LMP 2 with a "nissan engine" awaiting they step up in 2015 in a semi works team.

Donīt get me wrong, i would love to see this Perrinn LMP 1 in WEC and Le Mans in 2014 but the current situation.....

That's a bit of an assumption to make on a few different levels.

I have this opinion because a think Nissan will go to LMP 1 in a near future and do a similar situation like Toyota and Oreca, but this is just my opinion, not based in facts

Depends what happens with Lola, HPD etc, teams like Rebellin, Strakka etc will need new chassis at some point.

My opinion is that Rebellion possible go with HPD, Lola car will not race next year and Strakka will leave WEC.
