    Why hasn't Porsche returned to racing?

    Ferrari lives and breathes it. Why hasn't Porsche lately?

    Re: Why hasn't Porsche returned to racing?

    Actually Porsche is quite active right now. More so than say 5 years ago. They do not compete directly, but they support heavily customer cars - Penske's RS Spyder, Farnbacher-Loles GT2, etc.

    Re: Why hasn't Porsche returned to racing?

    They don't have a proper factory effort, only heavily supported customer teams because they want all the benefits of victory with none of the downsides of defeat.

    If they lose, the factory can just keep them at an arms length.

    If they win, the factory "supported" them.

    WIN WIN

    Not quite Moogle.
    The problem lies in part, with the current rules for the top class of prototype race cars.
    The current rules heavily favor diesel engined cars, and as Porsche don't sell diesel cars (yet) there is no interest in spending millions to develop a car that won't be competitive and will do nothing to project their image.
    The ACO promise to modify the rules for next year, and if they make up a set of fair rules, then it is possible that we will see a Porsche LMP1 effort.
    The other part of the problem lies with Mr. WW and his view that motor racing is OK as long as its profitable.

    F1 = Nazi Sex Orgies

    The Itlians loves it but Porsche prefer to do REAL racing instead, ie Sports Car racing.

    IMO the most real racing on 4 wheels I've watched recently (unfortunately only on video) is the Nurbrurgring VLN series!

    F1 is a club parade in comparison!
