Porsche says bye Audi but wants them to come back

Here’s a very touching video from Porsche’s Le Mans teams. It says bye to Audi, thanks them for being a great competitor, and wishes that they come back.

This is somewhat ironic as both brands are part of VAG. VAG, as we all know, is struggling due to #Dieselgate. In fact, some say that if Porsche did not develop its own Le Mans team, the Audi team would still be in it.

Bye, Audi.

    Awwwwww! Right in the feels…

  • In one of the “Things to Read” in the Monday Motorsports was an explanation how/why the Company ran two teams. It certainly could be boiled down to a mood of Herr Piech, and he demanded two different drive train concepts. Now the diesel had to go.
    I have the impression that the Emperor planted the company culture that allowed, maybe even caused Dieselgate. I hope that some race engineers could swap over, it must be hard to go from Le Mans to four-door Polos.
