Thinking of the "what-if" earlier and decided to do some math to see what Toyota could accomplish by letting their TS050 loose. They thought the comparisons to the 919 EVO would stack up well so lets go by when they did run the TS050's engine and hybrid 'unrestricted'- the 2018-2019 Super Season Prologue at Paul Ricard...

Toyota ran it's regular TS050 close to unrestricted last year during pre-season testing at the WEC Prologue. The timing is here- http://fiawec.alkamelsystems.com/ You go to the 2018-2019 season in the drop down menu and choose Paul Ricard. The top speeds are amazing. 347kmh for the Toyota vs the next best lmp1 at 339kmh. That was with their Le Mans/low downforce package. The high downforce package did ~316kmh, but it was the faster car around the lap. Let's say Toyota gained 5-6 seconds (1:38-1:32) just from allowing their car to run it's powertrain unleashed.

That's a 6.1% decrease in lap time. I took that and applied it to their best lap at a track the 919 EVO ran, Spa. Their best time in qualifying was a 1:53.6, taking away 6.1% of that equals >6.9 seconds. Round that up to 7 seconds off and you come up with a 1:46.6xx lap time at Spa which is about 5 seconds away from Porsche's previous lap record. Not too bad of a chance to match the 919 Evo imo.

It's something kinda pointless but it's already been done, so why not again?

Without (I hope) being too facetious, I think you've answered your own question. Because it's pointless......

I think the PR is probably the one thing that might be a plus for them. Maybe it wouldn't really help the WEC though because the car isn't running to the regulations and they are switching to hypercar anyway.

With the Porsche 919 Evo I thought it was a really cool project but rather wished they would use the funds to enter at least one car for a couple of WEC races and Le Mans. At least if Toyota does the same its not instead-of but more of a celebration of the outgoing car by letting it loose. I think that's what Porsche was doing too and even though we may not like it vs actual WEC/LM competition, it's still talked about and celebrated by automotive media.

Seems like a complete waste of time. It’s a motorsport program. Let’s put that money towards motorsport programs. How about a proper works Toyota GT3 team? Rather than this weird Lexus setup? Or a GTE? Or a GT4? Or, well any racing car that’s racing.

I don't know about your thoughts but they're involved in a lot of racing already. Lmp1, WRC, Nascar, Super GT GT500, Super Formula, customer GT3 (Europe, USA, Japan) & GT4, VLN/N24, Dakar, South American Touring Car, Junior Formula, NHRA Drag Racing etc. Maybe the funds will be from what if anything is saved transitioning lmp1 to hypercar?
