Gran Turismo 7: three new cars coming next week, here are the profiles

Gran Turismo 7

As per tradition before a new update, Kazunori Yamauchi, the head of Polyphony Digital, announced the upcoming arrival of three new cars within Gran Turismo 7 with next week's update, also showing some clues about vehicles through the typical darkened silhouettes.

Below you can see Yamauchi's official tweet and possibly try to discern the upcoming cars, which will likely be introduced within the 1.22 patch perhaps scheduled for the beginning of the week, although there is no official timeline for release yet.

The great experts of the series and engines in general have already decoded at least two of the cars, while some doubts remain on the third. Most users agree that the leftmost one is a Volkswagen ID.R, a 680 horsepower electric prototype racing car that broke the climbing record at the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb in 2018 and was then also protagonist at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in the its category.

The profile of the car is quite unmistakable, considering its particularity, and it appears evident also in this partially hidden version. The central one also has a fairly visible profile in its characterization, and appears to be the Porsche Vision GT Spyder, which was indeed expected within Gran Turismo 7 given the collaboration with the Vision GT initiative.

The third car remains more mysterious: it is a coupe still not well identified but which could be a Japanese car: the most accredited choices concern Honda Prelude, Nissan Silvia or Toyota Soarer, but for this we will have to wait for the official arrival of the patch to find out . For the rest, on September 1st we saw the arrival of the 1.21 update, demonstrating the rather frequent support for the game by Polyphony Digital.

  • The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder concept car is the brand's second vehicle in the video-game-related Vision Gran Turismo program, which launched in 2013 for Gran Turismo 6.

  • The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo, which this new Spyder replicates, was Porsche's first foray into the Vision Gran Turismo program and debuted with the new Gran Turismo 7 video game in March.

  • The newest Porsche concept will be available to drive exclusively within Gran Turismo 7 starting on September 29.

  • Say what you will about the metaverse, it has cool cars. However, one drawback is that you can't drive the new Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder on public roads. The newest concept car from Porsche is part of a program launched in 2013 between the game developer Polyphony Digital and automakers. The program works with companies including Porsche that design their ideal version of grand touring cars and allows fans to experience them through the video-game world of Gran Turismo.

    Porsche's newest addition to the Vision GT world is an open-top version of its concept that launched with Gran Turismo 7 in March. Like the supercar concept it is based on, the Vision GT Spyder wraps velvety body panels over a long—low slung frame. It shares the same rectangular headlights, which, Porsche explained, reference the Taycan. In addition to the Porsche branding on the rear bumper, the Spyder now incorporates the company name in large font extending the length of the car.

    Porsche did not give out any details on the Vision GT Spyder, but the GT concept it is based on is an all-wheel-drive electric supercar with the performance numbers to back it up. Getting to 62 miles per hour takes 2.1 seconds. Doubling that speed requires an additional 3.1 seconds. Max power figures are listed as 1100 horsepower, or up to 1274 with overboost and launch control. The coupe is able to reach a top speed of 217 mph.

    The Spyder will join the coupe version of the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo concept in the game starting on September 29. Both Porsches, along with creations already in the game from the likes of Mercedes, Lamborghini, and Mazda, will be drivable in the Gran Turismo 7 universe.
