What will the electric racing cars of the future look like? Well, hopefully it sounds like Porsche’s Vision Gran Turismo, which is Porsche’s stunning vision for the future of motorsport. To develop this innovative racing car, Porsche decided to create a bespoke vehicle for the Gran Turismo 7 video game where people around the world can experience the future of motorsport from the comfort of their homes. For those who want more than just a digital experience, Porsche has also built the real thing as a concept car where you can see the future of Porsche in the flesh.
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is the future of motorsport. Of course, racing cars powered by internal combustion engines will always hold a special place in our hearts, but the direction of the industry is that electric drivetrains are the future. That means top motorsport companies like Porsche need to stay at the cutting edge of electric vehicle technology, where they can leverage it in their presence in motorsport.
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is a study focused on what future Porsche racing cars might look like and drive. Instead of just a static concept car, the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is featured in Gran Turismo 7 where car enthusiasts everywhere can drive this wild machine. This also means that Porsche had to implement a real motorsport design for this unique vehicle.
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo develops an impressive 1,300 horsepower (969 kilowatts). It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.1 seconds thanks to its all-wheel drive system which helps reduce power. Based on in-game driving, the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo has genuine Porsche motorsport precision, which is something we’ve come to expect from a manufacturer like Porsche with decades of motorsport experience.
