Porsche: Looking into racing at Le Mans instead of Formula One?

Porsche 918 RSR

Latest rumor has it that Porsche is looking into racing at Le Mans instead of investing into Formula One.

Sorry Formula One fans, it looks like Porsche won’t be throwing its hat into your ring anytime soon. Instead, the German manufacturer is more likely to back a factory team at Le Mans, at least according to ESPN. CEO Matthias Mueller said that while F1 has some attractive aspects, it’s also very expensive. Throw in the fact that success is a good sight less predictable than in other racing theaters and you can begin to understand why Porsche is a little skittish about diving into the deep end of the motorsports pool.

Instead, Mueller says that there’s a stronger possibility that we could see Porsche return to Le Mans.
