I'd like to know how they came to this understanding given that Toyota and Nissan(ESPECIALLY Nissan) have said they'd be there if DTM would just switch to the 2 liter turbos. What have they heard to make them doubt this?

It's just another step forward.... class A concept has always been a struggle.... recall late 2010 when party were close to finalize specs for japanese, european and american DTM style series worldwide.
BTW after mercedes withdraw I can see DTM survive only if bmw and audi agree to extend to 8 cars.

The specs were finalized and implemented in 2012. But DTM keeps delaying the introduction of the 2-liter turbo I4s.

Is it awful that I want DTM to collapse?...More GTEs please!!

If that happens, I hope they open up the GTE cars a little so they can be around the speed of the outgoing DTM's.

That's the only way to go. DTM has a reputation for having "touring cars" (more like GTs now) that go like top-tier open wheelers, so just throwing in something like GTE is not sufficient.

Two words: "Super GT3." Or even Super GTE.

***Sportscar365 understands that an announcement on a new GTE manufacturer could be imminent. It’s unclear if that manufacturer’s participation could extend into the WeatherTech Championship or be focused entirely on the FIA World Endurance Championship, at least initially.

The timing is pretty much in line with a rumoured Lambo announcement that was doing the rounds a couple of months ago, I think...?

To me mclaren is more interested to take part in future specs meetings and join WEC/LM with a rumored gtp than a gte.
Lamborghini rumor spreads since 2015.... if it is true, hope for them that they could find a great tuner for their V10 5.2L because is terribly low on torque compared to turbo engines.
Toyota stepping in gte it's more unlikely to me, but it would put in jeopardy lmp1 program.

Not according to the rules but they still allowed the 8L Viper with a waiver, I'm sure Lamborghini could get one too if they actually wanted to race the Aventador, its all going to be BoP'd anyways.
