Motor1 sister site has conjured up a Porsche F1 car as the car maker decides whether to get involved.

Porsche is said to be considering a return to Formula 1 should the new engine rules that are set to be announced in the next several weeks prove favourable – and possibly as a works manufacturer in its own right.

Lutz Meschke, deputy chairman of Porsche's executive board, confirmed the interest at last month’s Italian grand prix, giving hope that one of the automotive world’s most famous manufacturers might return for the first time since 1991.

While Porsche is a long way from committing, and it’s unclear whether it would return only as an engine manufacturer or would consider its own team, Motor1 sister brand Motorsport TV has created this 3D animation of what a works F1 car might look like for the German brand:

The car stars on the cover of this week’s Autosport magazine, which features an in-depth feature on what it might take Porsche to commit to F1 and how close it could be to doing so.

Autosport magazine is released every Thursday, available both in print and as a digital magazine, and offers the best in coverage of F1 and the whole world of motorsport.
