What will the future electric race cars look like? Hopefully, it will resemble Porsche Vision Gran Turismo, which is the company’s stunning vision for the future of motorsports. Porsche decided to develop this innovative race car as a bespoke vehicle for the Gran Turismo 7 video game, allowing people all over the world to experience the future of motorsport from the comfort of their own homes. Porsche built the real thing as a concept car where you can see the future of Porsche in the flesh for those who want more than just a digital experience.
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is the car of the future. Sure, race cars powered by internal combustion engines will always have a special place in our hearts, but given the industry’s current trajectory, electric drivetrains are the way of the future. As a result, top motorsport companies such as Porsche must stay on the cutting edge of EV technology in order to leverage it in their motorsport presence.
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is a study that looks and drives like future Porsche race cars. Instead of being a static concept car, the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo can be driven by car enthusiasts all over the world in Gran Turismo 7.
It also means that Porsche had to use real motorsport design for this one-of-a-kind vehicle. The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo has a whopping 1,300 horsepower (969 Kilowatts). It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.1 seconds thanks to its all-wheel-drive system, which assists in putting the power down. Based on in-game driving, the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo exhibits true Porsche motorsport precision, as one would expect from a manufacturer with decades of motorsport experience.
