Porsche Vision Gran Turismo 2022. Reality won’t let up: the digital Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is destined for a production counterpart.

Porsche and Polyphony Digital Studio unveiled a conceptual electric hypercar Vision Gran Turismo created specifically for the game Gran Turismo 7 (released on Sony PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in March 2022), but experts and enthusiasts have already seen in the game car for a new real hypercar German brand.

Since the production of the hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder ended in the summer of 2015, the place of the flagship sports car in the German brand’s lineup has been vacant.

In the archives of the Porsche design studio declassified last year, several potential candidates for replacing the 918 Spyder were found, but they all remained a fantasy.

The new concept Vision Gran Turismo (short for Vision GT) is also kind of a fantasy, but at least the Porsche studio made a real full-size mockup for the presentation.

In the appearance of the Vision GT is not difficult to see the similarity with the very real September concours Porsche Mission R, which, according to rumors, in the near future will become an electric replacement for the gasoline mid-engine models Porsche 718 — there are even renders of the production version.

The electric hypercar, even more powerful and faster than the Mission R, logically fits into Porsche’s electric car development doctrine.

The description of Vision GT specs include the following specifications: peak output of 820 kW (1,115 hp), and 950 kW (1,292 hp) available in overboost mode, all-wheel drive, acceleration to 100 km/h in 2.1 seconds, to 200 km/h in 5.4 seconds, maximum speed of 350 km/h.

Battery capacity — 87 kWh, range on a single charge under the WLTP cycle — 500 km.

Why do the players of Gran Turismo 7 need to know the range in the vegetable, by their standards, the cycle WLTP? Well, to be closer to reality.

The concept has meticulously worked out all the details, including the cabin, or rather the cockpit, where the driver and a single passenger is divided by a powerful carbon fiber «rail».

A thin transparent curved screen with three round dials serves as the dashboard.

The cockpit is accessed through a large transparent hood that tilts forward.

In general, the Vision GT looks stylish but rather restrained for the virtual world — the concepts of Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot and other brands created for computer games look much more spectacular and exciting.

But first of all, the Vision GT is Porsche’s first experience in developing a car for virtual races, and secondly, there’s a feeling that the Vision GT is not so virtual, and that the marketing department of Porsche has even drawn up a step-by-step plan for turning the concept into a small-scale production product.

The hood will probably have to be abandoned, but everything else can be put into production.

Even if the Vision GT will never become a roadster, it’s a good starting point for Porsche to tap into so-called meta universes, that is, digital worlds where, according to futurologists, people will be spending more time than they do in real life this decade.

There will be more and more virtual machines for virtual worlds — it is a separate promising and highly profitable business.

As they say, everyone will be there, but hopefully there will be enough real machines for our age.
