One theory is that right now the manufacturers and the ACO are in talks about a unified GT category. So the regs will change and the ACO homologating this car could be the first sign of what that new GT category will look like.
Also with the ACO/IMSA facing a possibility that BMW wouldn't be back in the ALMS unless they let them run the V8 in the Z4, the ACO/IMSA caved so they could keep another manufacturer backed team on the grid.
But that is the million dollar question.
