Porsche has unveiled a prototype called the Vision Gran Turismo, a hypercar made of titanium and carbon. This is a unique development for the brand, since previously only computer copies of real models participated in Gran Turismo, and a new concept was created specifically for the seventh part of Gran Turismo. At the same time, the automaker promises that some of the solutions implemented on the virtual hypercar can later be implemented on real production cars.
Porsche said there are a number of advantages to working on a virtual car: for example, designers are not bound by technical constraints, and designers have more opportunities when comparing this process to creating a real car. Despite this, the hypercar for Gran Turismo is quite realistic and retains the proportions of the production Porsche cars.
You can trace what features the virtual hypercar inherited from real-life models: for example, the head optics and air intakes refer to the Taycan electric car, the LED strip across the entire width of the stern is familiar from the serial 911, and the interior is made with an eye on the brand’s track sports cars. It clarifies that only recycled materials are used in the interior decoration, and the hypercar itself is made of titanium and carbon fiber.
The company has not yet disclosed the technical details of the novelty.
Part 7 of Gran Turismo is coming to consoles on March 4th, 2022.
