i've been following the S5000 rollout from a distant...but i'm disappointed by the cars, they look way to bulbous, especially the nose...

but i remember seeing one for the first time and thinking it looked awesome!
so i went to google, and found this article: https://www.motorsport.com/openwheel/news/new-formula-5000-car-makes-track-debut-837703/837703/

that's a formula5000 car! not an S5000! but that article is already from 2016...anything happened with this series? this thing still alive and kicking? i haven't heard anything about? or was the Formula5000 the prototype and the S5000 the final product?
