In which case, I would hope that the teams be Penske, Joest, and maybe Pesca, with Porsche support and drivers. Do we have anymore clues as to the guns that Porsche are trying to steal from Audi?

The article does not specifically mention that Porsche are trying to steal any "guns"from Audi, perhaps because two of the Audi "guns"are actually Porsche factory drivers. It talks about Porsche trying to lure a senior person from Audi.

If Porsche is running 3 cars they do not need 3 different teams to run them. Penske ran 2 cars and even 3 at one point. Adding the 5 car for the indy car stars in the enduros. Pesca, Joest, and Penske is somewhat overkill. Joest will be with Audi until the end of time haha.
This looks like an in-house job from Porsche. First time in a long while that we see a works Porsche team.

They are still racing it seems.
Thanks for posting that up. Seems they have dropped under the radar and are doing club style racing at the moment. Would be nice to see them back on the international stage back in GT racing again.

I dont think you will see an in house effort . From what I understand , Manthey will lead the effort , and will start gearing up in 2013 .

Manthey? Dont get me wrong-Manthey are a very capable team but they have no history (that Im aware of anyway) of running an LMP so it doesnt make a lot of sense them running an LMP.

Maybe they'd be better off stepping up to the WEC etc to fill the spot left by an existing Porsche GTE team who might run an LMP in the future.

I think we'll see an inhouse effort like what was done with the GT1.

That Motorsport-Total article mentioned above said that they can't really do it "in house in house", due to labor laws and what not as all the rules that apply to the last mechanic and bean counter of Porsche AG would also apply to the race team, e.g. for working overtimes, holidays, etc and that would be a huge burocratic pain in the neck.

What I could see them doing is using Manthey (or someone else) as a shell for what it effectively an in house operation.

From what I hear , Manthey will run a semi-works GT WEC team in 2013 , to gell a top running crew together , drivers/pit crew , and will run a P1 team for Porsche in 2014 .

Rene Rast was mentioned by the danish Eurosport commentator as a driver who will be sure of an Porsche LMP1 seat. He didn't give any real reason, but he performed well in todays Porsche Supercup at Silverstone.

Highly doubt that, Rast has no prototype experience and he is wanting to go to DTM.

If it is Manthey, it would make sense to have a prep year, like VW with Skoda this year in the WRC.

Any chance of Manthey running the yellow and green colours????

Jeroen Bleekemolen could be a good choice? Obviously well accomplished in GTs with Porsche, prototype experience with Rebellion, and seemingly ready to break-out in a higher profile factory-backed team I would think.

I think Rast will go nowhere. So far he hasn't scored a factory seat anywhere despite having multiple tryouts with various manufacturers.

Something about him seems to be a big turnoff for the manufacturers. Rast was also scheduled to compete in Intl. GT Open with Manthey before he was kicked off the squad shortly before the season.
