    TopGear BMW M-Power history (with Tiff Needell)

    Re: TopGear BMW M-Power history (with Tiff Needell)

    nice video, thanks for sharing!

    slightly of topic, but when Tiff mentions the reason for the M1 (BMW wanting to take on Porsche) I can't help to think how great it would be if Porsche would race in F1. Appearantly it's getting cheaper and cheaper to compete, and how much better wouldn't it sound with BMW vs Mercedes vs Ferrari vs Porsche than Red Bull vs Toyota vs Renault (what the he** are the two latter doing in motorsport anyway?). Please mister Piech, allow us to see some Ferrari vs Porsche in F1!!

    Thx Hawk, interesting one.

    Just a wild guess on my part, but are you too young to consciously remember 1990, or was it 1991?

    Thx Hawk.

    Re: TopGear BMW M-Power history (with Tiff Needell)

    Great video, Thanks!

    I doubt we'll see Porsche in F1 anytime soon. They're far too concerned about making money to consider the investment that would be needed to enter and be competitive. Even the new RS Spyder will be making them money.

    Something nice to dream about in the least though.

    Re: TopGear BMW M-Power history (with Tiff Needell)

    Totally agree Damien. Porsche seems to have taken financial discipline too far and are straying too far from their racing focused heritage.I'm not just talking about entering F1, though. That would be incredibly expensive. But just more overall involvement in motorsports at the factory level.

    Well, I'm capable of remembering parts of 1990, but my interest in cars started nearly a decade later, so that's more of the explanation.

    So if you'd like to refresh ( ) my memory about the 1990/91 season that would be great, but my pleed to mister Piech is about future seasons. Regardless of what happened in 1990/91, I'm quite sure it would make an interesting battle..

    Your rational for this?
