Porsche is well renowned for making amazing cars for real-world racetracks. And Porsche doesn’t want to stop here and wants to conquer the virtual racetracks and has revealed its first virtual sports car that has been exclusively designed for a video game, specifically for Sony’s upcoming Gran Turismo 7.
Sony’s Gran Turismo series has been one of the most critically acclaimed game series since Sony revealed its PS1, back in 1997, with every instalment of the game providing an incremental upgrade in terms of graphics and selection of cars. However, Porsche was mostly absent from the Gran Turismo world until 2017 due to licensing agreements.
The company’s first virtual concept car under the Vision Gran Turismo program will be making its debut in its seventh instalment, aptly named Gran Turismo 7, which is scheduled to be released exclusively for Sony PlayStation 4 & 5 on the fourth of March, 2022.
Porsche all-electric virtual concept car that you wouldn’t be able to drive on the streets has a few tricks up its sleeve, including futuristic features that would work only in a video game or perhaps sometime in the near future.
From the outside, The Porsche Vision GT features a set of square-shaped headlights reminiscent of the real-life Taycan, while the wide, sleek haunches and light strip at the rear shed light on Porsche’s signature style found on Porsche’s current lineup of cars.
While from the Inside, the car features a yoke-style steering wheel, with a curved holographic display for the instrument cluster behind it, which is still reminiscent of the shape and layout of Porsche’s current gauge clusters.
While we don’t expect the Porsche Vision GT to make it to production any time soon, it is very exciting for Porsche and gaming fanboys alike. It provides us with a glimpse into the future of electric cars in general.
