I refer to the very interesting article Born Not To Run (October) and in particular to the story about the Porsche LMP2000 car.
I drove to the 2002 Geneva International Motor Show with Bob Wolleck and Bernard Cahier. Bob had recently returned from Weissach where he had been testing a new prototype race car that “would easily win Le Mans, no question, but the project has been shelved in order to put all engineering resources into the development of the Cayenne SUV”. He was obviously referring to the LMP2000 but did not give the name.
This was confirmed in your article, but you also mentioned the focus on the new Carrera GT project. Bob didn’t mention that (assuming he knew) but he was really upset about the shelving, as not having won overall at Le Mans was emotional unfinished business for him.
