Despite historically a rivalry, Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup usually utilizing Mercedes-AMG vehicles in every race weekends

The Mercedes-AMG Safety Car in a Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup race.

Porsche and Mercedes-Benz AMG historically are a fierce rivalry but Mercedes-AMG vehicles usually supplying a courtesy vehicles such as Safety Cars, Medical Cars and other course cars due to Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is a de facto Formula 1 support race tournament.

Sadly no Porsche vehicles supplying Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup courtesy vehicles at the moment.

Porsche is free to offer their services to the FIA the next time the FIA tender for the provision of safety and medical cars. A Porsche Panamera safety car / Cayenne medical car combo could work well.
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"

Panamera? Why not Cayman or 911 Turbo as Safety Cars?

Panamera Turbo S E-hybrid. 700bhp and fits in with the hybrid direction of F1.

The 911 Turbo doesn't fit that image.

Edit: thinking further, the Panamera could do both the safety car role and the medical car role. The current medical car is just a Merc coupe so the Panamera would be no worse.
