t would be easy to dismiss Porsche’s new virtual concept as a plaything with no real implications for the future of some of our favourite sports cars, but it took the company a total of two and a half years to complete – not much quicker than many series-production cars – and manufacturers simply don’t spend that amount of time and cash on flights of fancy.
Ignore the canopy opening, transparent gauges and trick movable flaps at the rear and, save for the conspicuous absence of certain comfort and safety features, the Vision Gran Turismo is so remarkably complete that it feels, contrary to what its designers say, more like a production-previewing concept.
Porsche has revealed its first virtual concept car.
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo is the latest in a long line of digital concepts for the Gran Turismo racing game, and points to where Porsche plans to take its design language in the electric era.
Although it’s not real, the Vision GT is rooted in Porsche’s current design reality. The low-set headlights have the same four-point LED running light signature, and the lack of grilles or superfluous add-ons is in keeping with the rest of the current range.
