This is the first time I am seeing a possible return to Le Mans (albeit in the distant future) mentioned by a Porsche exec:https://www.thechronicle.com.au/news...uture/3668599/
Quote:
Blume says battery tech will feature in Porsche's motorsport programs - both in the short term, with Formula E, and possibly in the long term at Le Mans.
Quote:
"When battery technology will be prepared for long distance races, why not?" he says.

"Up to now we will continue with GT motorsport in the Le Mans series and go to Formula E.

"But never say never for the future. Also, the guys from the WEC and Le Mans have to think about how to make evolution for their series, for [the] future.

"But, why not?"

The press release of that concept said they do NOT intend to make any sort of real, road or race, car of it.

"Here's a partial segment. Watch the full episode, including more Porsche and 100% Harris on Sunday 11/4 on /DRIVE on NBC Sports, 9:00p ET on NBCSN."
This might not be that aired segment but another one he did for Top Gear and which was just uploaded:

Shame. It would have been a heck of a lot more worthwhile than the speed record stunts.....

If only had they stayed in the first place for even little while longer (like a year or two), then we wouldn't have to have had ACO panicking like little spoiled children and hastily coming up with these garbage new lobbyist regulations... instead there would be the "boring" conventional ones ACO introduced in 2017 LM for 2020... you know, which still maintained the idea of real racing. What a shame. It's not your fault Porsche, but still a shame

They wanted the 3 ers's, two kers and the turbo ers-h. The ACO was all for it too but then dieselgate happened. Then they had to change their image to 'green' to appease the (disillusioned imo) minority of their "customers". That's why Porsche and Audi are both headed to or are in F-E. No more lmp1 because of that. Oh well. Maybe these regs will open up in the future or they'll just get cancelled for something more technically appealing and Porsche comes back?

Then again these gimmicks were part of the rules package:

- full lap made in EV mode only after a pitstop
- finishing the race in EV mode only

If there was anything good that came out of Porsche's widthdrawal it was that these two ideas got buried instantly.

The second one was silly and could've lead to horrible consequences, but meh the first would've been fine I think... maybe pushed the manufacturers a little
