Jim, I think you're missing the point. While it is clear Porsches are out there racing and winning in GT and sportscars, Porsche race fans want them back in the top levels of international motorsport. This means things like the prototype classes in Lemans. I think that is what the problem is. In fact, if a Porsche prototype won overall at Lemans it wouldn't matter if it was a privateer or not. After all the Gulf/Wyer 917 was technically a privateer. GT wins are not cutting it for the hard-core Porsche race fan.
