Yes to most of the comments mentioned but I think we do have normal GT's in the races so if the prototypes take things to the next level in looks as well as technology then that is all right by me

As late as 1966 Le Mans organizers required cars to have a horn, turn signals, 4 inches of ground clearance, luggage space, and a spare.

As I explained earlier, they were originally called "prototypes" as they were the prototypes of models that manufacturers intended to sell after racing at Le Mans.

Now the only thing that's "prototype" is some of the technology, rather than the cars themselves, but there needs to be a link.

The 962 had indicators, a stock block engine, and a Porsche badge stuck on the front with immense pride. It became a Porsche.

Is it possible to do that with a current LMP1? The ACO need to ask themselves that. They need to remember why Le Mans is celebrating 90 years this year...why it's survived a World War, a couple of economic depressions and oil crises.

Two word answer to that. Road. Relevance.
+1 to all of the above too^

Don't forget even the GT1 cars of 1998 needed luggage space. I remember Toyota exploited this by getting the ACO to approve their empty petrol tank as a "trunk" lol.

I think it was something like:
"Ok, this is our luggage space, and we have put out petrol tank in it. Nothing in the rules says you have to be able to put suitcases in it."
But anyhow, the ACO was not amused.

Ah ok. I understood you were a little bit too busy lately, so only do it when you have time. Don't make time for me.
Thx in advance,
Vincent
