The car clearly is relatively similar to it's regulatory incarnation. I have no doubt that Porsche could have taken it even further than they did. The modifications are not THAT extreme. They clearly wanted to "evolve" the design. To show what could be done with the platform. At the same time it keeps it's roots.

It's a marketing gimmick by Porsche. This car won Le Mans and it is faster than an F1 car. Unless you follow motorsport, who is to know.

Regulations or not, it is about to go super fast around the Ring and I wish I was there to see it!

It would be cool if they do a track map of their attempted record lap with the fastest lap at the N24 this year by a Porsche overlain.

Preparation - Full battery charge, super sticky tyres, fumes in the fuel tank. On the track - Flat through Tertre Rouge, whack on the electrical boost to the maximum plus open up the DRS and keep it pinned!

The ACO could spring a surprise with a couple of demo laps for the 919 evo to see what it could do, sure porsche would love to do it.

Maybe, maybe not. If they wanted to do as you say, then I would say the same weekend as LeMans or right after might do it. Was the Spa track record timed to overshadow the WEC Spa event?

Maybe Porsche is doing this on their own schedule? I mean it is the season to be on track right now. Anyhow... how could this car steal headlines from races? As everyone who is against this project says "Its not a race car".

I'm not sure that ACO and the spectators would appreciate such a come back after Porsche have left the championship.

I agree that chance of that happening is zero for the reason you mention.
