A rumor circulating around the floor of the Paris Motor Show involves a certain German sports car brand that’s looking to get into Formula One. Care to venture a guess which brand it is?

Ok, we already spoiled it with the title of the article, but it’s worth mentioning again that Porsche could find its way on the F1 grid sometime in the future. To be fair, there’s nothing official about this little bird that talked, but Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller was quoted by Autocar singling out Audi and Porsche, saying that there’s an unlikely chance for both brands to participate at Le Mans.

Instead, according to Muehller, “We have to discuss whether it makes better sense for one of the brands to go into LMP1, and the other brand into formula one. So we will have a round-table to discuss the pros and cons”. It’s also worth mentioning that Audi, specifically motor sport chief Wolfgang Ulrich, has already shot down the possibility of Audi venturing into the circus that is Formula One, saying that “Audi and F1 do not fit together.”

Take one brand out of the equation and you’re left with the other one. We don’t know how valid these rumors are, but if it ends up being true, it sure is intriguing to see a Porsche on the F1 grid in the future.

Recently, I haven’t heard any formula team from this car company. It seems that they have change their mind for the money that they are going to spend here is kind of huge.

Well, it seems that the company has tons of moolah to support their own team! And I guess the sponsorship will help or they don’t want it either?

Well, I don’t think that they should be hesitate to do so. There car has an amazing power and speed. And I think Porsche 911 would be a great car to join in this competition.

I have found this news and thankfully they have entered in the Formula One. And as expected, the performance of this car seems powerful just like their production version.

Even if they don’t it comes down to personal opinion. I happen to think that the more complex an F1 car the better, that is what F1 is. If you want less complex watch NASCAR.

I prefer watching the NASACAR compare with Formula One.
