I' not so sure about that. it's true that todays cars share nothing with the streetcar except the roof and other smaller things like headlights etc.
for 2012 however there will be new regulations so you wont see cars like they have in DTM today which are basically formula cars with a roof.
Dtm and super Gt will share the same regs so expect the cars to look something along the lines of alms gt2 but faster of course.
so i think the cars will share relatively much like the engine even though it will get massaged.
