"IndyCar in the U.S. market is a very important series. Very historic and classic, Roger (Penske) is competing (in it) for a long time, we are good friends with Roger, we are also quite interested in IndyCar. But we've defined very closely our motorsport pyramid in the past and (we) try to shake out what is for our customer base the most important series to be in and we found that the (American Le Mans Series) with the prototypes is better suited to the demands of our customers. I think that it is not very likely that we are going into IndyCar. There is no open question (about entering the series) on the table right now." - Wolfgang Durheimer, Porsche research and development board member throwing giant buckets of ice water on the idea of seeing "Porsche, there is no substitute" racing in The 500 anytime soon.

Then again maybe we will, just under the name "Audi" or, ahem, "Volkswagen".
