I thought the issue was the Honda intellectual property. Redbull thought- and had told Porsche - that they had bought the IP but Honda say they merely leased it. Thus Porsche would have no access to the current IP and should not be able to actually help with the engines in development as they use Honda IP.

So they left.

Watch this space. Honda will be ‘back’ in 26. I still can’t believe they pulled out, I bet they’ll be kicking themselves, again….

Honda are the Alonso of engine suppliers.

If / when they make an official comeback, I pray it doesn't coincide with a rise to power for another manufacturer's purple period.

Porsche need an engine partner because they don't have the capacity to make their own. That was why they were trying to go with Red Bull.
Porsche don't have the capacity to make their own PU, but Audi do have the capacity?
I seem to recall reading some speculation earlier this year that Audi's F1 engine program would be based on Porsche's WEC/F1 V6 experiment.
