    Porsche drops Le Mans hint

    22 December 2009

    Porsche could return to Le Mans with a car capable of challenging for outright victory, according to company bosses.

    Although he did not specify when a car would make its competitive debut, Porsche boss Michael Macht told Autosport the company had "big plans for the future" and promised an announcement "that will surprise you" in the spring.

    He added: "Everyone in the Porsche family would be happy to go to Le Mans to challenge for victory again. When we do go we have to be prepared; we will only go if we have a chance to win."

    Wolfgang Durheimer, Porsche board member in charge of motorsport, confirmed that there is no reason why Porsche and Audi couldn't race against each other at Le Mans, despite them both being part of the VW Group now.

    So far, so good, after the marriage between Porsche and VW!

    In the near future this sort of news were impossible. Really, really great news!

    This sort of stuff was unheard of in Wiedeking times, all in all the cost of staying independant with wiedeking's ideas was to high of a price to pay and was loosing its very identity we all loved with no apparent benefits (and there was all the posible part sharing going on already with VW like building cars like the Cayenne together). We have a saying here that translated to "the remedy was worse than the disease".
