guess we all agree that DP2 (and a bit less DP1 too) was a really bleeding eyes class....

actually still can't understand how some people found the riley and corvette dp DP3 shape so ugly compared to previous gens

I thought the Crawford was pretty nice. Ok short and stubby, but the best you can do with it.

Certainly looked more like the Corvette DPs and I prefer Tennessee Whiskey over Canadian Whiskey...

If the Multimatic had a Lexus engine option I would have.

I like short sports prototypes, like the old Ferrari 333 SP.
The current LMP1 and LMP2 look way too long.
Even the Corvette DP was better proportioned.

4650mm is shorter than most mid-sized sedans. An Audi A4, BMW 3 series or Mercedes-Benz C class is longer than most LMP1 cars. Thought this was less noticeable when the cars were 2000mm wide, nearly 100mm/4 inches wider than they are now.

Not to mention that pre-2006 most LMP cars had much shorter wheelbases than now. Examples included the Audi R8 (107.5 inches), Lola B160 (106.3) and Panoz LMP1 Roadster (108.3). Then came the Audi R10 (117.3) and Porsche RS Spyder (114), which was to maximize car length to 4650mm with the 750mm rear overhangs (as well as make the cars more stable in high speed corners and under braking).

Also, for whatever reason, DPIs and LMP2s are 4750mm long, 4 inches longer than LMP1s and nearly as long as the old GTP and LMGTP cars (4800+mm).

McLaren could be the fifth DPI factory team , but in 2019.
With the future of the LMP1 class in question, following Porscheís withdrawal, Brown said heís hopeful of the FIA and ACO aligning under the DPi model, or something similar, for its top prototype class.
It would thus enable the same car to compete for overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Rolex 24 at Daytona and Twelve Hours of Sebring, something that hasnít been possible for nearly 20 years.

You can do that already. There's nothing stopping them from stylizing a p2 chassis. And there's nothing stopping them from upgrading the same chassis into a privateer p1.

Didn't Zak Brown also say he was hopeful for their results in F1 this year? Not something I'd put much faith in...

That said, while I think Toyota would be the first to pull the trigger(unless they pull the plug on Le Mans) DPi as LMP1 across the board(rather than just at Le Mans) would probably get at least three of the "evaluating" manufacturers involved over the course of a few seasons, and I think there's a good chance McLaren would actually be one of them - they've been approached for partnerships already, though nothing's ultimately happened.

Well if you have to make all those changes is it really "the same car" as what was mentioned in the article?

Left or right, allowing DPi's to compete at LM (and in the WEC) will certainly spark the interest of many manufacturers. And that would almost instantly translate into much appreciated extra cash flow for the ACO.

Big problem is with the ACO's (and some car makers') fascination with alternative fuels and hybrids. Not to mention that such things would probably be a BOP nightmare as far as factory teams wanting to run such things, other factory teams not giving a crap about it, and trying to throw a bone to privateer teams.
