    It sounds very strange to me, because the card from the DTM are C segment here in Europe (Mercedes C klass, A4, Opel Vectra), while the Panamera is much bigger than those... is an E segment! So I personally I doubt there is such a project.

    if they shorten the platform maybe it's possible. But that means first we will see a panamera coupe a la 928!! It would be great news, though i take it with some grains of salt.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    The current DTM rules require a saloon body.

    Re: Porsche backed Panamera DTM racecar

    I think I would have heard of it by now, the season starts on april 25th, I'll double check but this season is highly unlikely.

    They could announce the car on 1st. April.  Smiley

    Re: Porsche backed Panamera DTM racecar

    There was a reference to N-technology´s (formerly running Alfa 156 in ETCC) development of the Panamera S for the V8 Supercar series. Could it be mistaken for that?

    A DTM initiative would not make sense since Audi is already successful running so it would be weird to see both Volkswagen companies in one series.

     Sounds plausible.


    Re: Porsche backed Panamera DTM racecar

     Yes, there must be some confusion with this:

    Re: Porsche backed Panamera DTM racecar

    Well, the Australian V8 Supercar series is said to be open to more makes (currently only a two make series, Ford and GM-Holden) and adopting some of the technologies of DTM.  Maybe someone will run the Panamera here!  Having said that, you would want to be pretty confident that you can win with it.  I mean, the Falcon (ford) and Commodore (Holden) are what all the taxis here are so you wouldn't want to lose to them!


    Re: Porsche backed Panamera DTM racecar

    WAY:

    I thought taxis are always on the fast side... Wouldn´t want to lose with a Porsche either.

    Having said that, the idea of entering a Porsche in Australia´s Supercar series sounds rather odd to me if competing with bread-and-butter cars like the Falcon. Smiley


    Re: Porsche backed Panamera DTM racecar

    Very true, except it's only Falcon by name and by body shell.  The race cars have nothing to do with the road cars.  As I understand it, many of them run Chevy engines very similar to a Nascar setup anyway.

     You are correct , It is going to run in the "Superstars Series".....
