Coming over the nex few days, the next Gran Turismo 7 update adds the Volkswagen ID.R, alongside Porsche Vision GT Spyder and what looks like a 1990s Japanese saloon.
We know all this via both a tweet by Porsche, which announced the open-top version of the electric concept car would be arriving on September 29th, and the usual teaser tweet from Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi, which revealed all three cars in silhouette.
Furthest left is the ID.R, which has 680hp from two electric motors, and was originally driven by Romain Dumas to new records at Pikes Peak, followed by the Nurburgring Nordschleife, the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb and more. It’s previously appeared in other games and sims, including RaceRoom.
Then there’s the convertible version of the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo, joining the hard top model which was released back on March 4th, 2022. With maximum power of 1274hp with overboost and launch control and a top speed of 217 for the normal version, the all-wheel drive open single seater doesn’t have much of a windscreen to stop your head getting blown off.
Finally, there’s the 1990s saloon, which looks like it could be a Toyota Soarer or Nissan Silvia S14 with the sunroof and bonnet visible, but not much else to help identify the car. The lip on the rear of the boot could indicate a Toyota Soarer Z30 (or the related Lexus SC Z30) from 1991, or the sportier JZZ30 model, which was the only model sold continuously through that model generation with a 2.5 litre engine initially featuring two turbos running together before a single turbo was brought in for 1996.
