Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder Debuts Slim Look For GT7

Posted on

Porsche has a new one-seater electric sports car with 1,300 horsepower (969 kilowatts) on tap. And, you can ride it, assuming you have it Gran Turismo 7. The vehicle is the Vision Gran Turismo Spyder.

The engine took the previous Porsche Vision Gran Turismo coupe and ripped the roof off. The front end is the same as the hardtop by utilizing a simple nose with four running lights on each side. The splitter on the hardtop variant has active aerodynamic elements that adjust to the speed of the vehicle.

From there, the line flows into a raised beacon for the fender. The company makes most of the bodywork flat and low. The driver gets a small windshield in front of the cockpit. Nacelle with roll hoop is stylish protection for pilots.

The tail has full width lights. At least on the coupe, the spoiler is capable of active adjustments.

This car exists only in the digital world, so Porsche can integrate all sorts of exotic technologies and materials at no extra cost. For example, the instrument panel includes a holographic display that makes the gauge appear to float above the steering wheel. There is also extensive use of carbon fiber.

Porsche does not offer technical specifications for the Vision Gran Turismo Spyder. The coupe has all-wheel drive and can hit 60 miles per hour in 2.1 seconds of in-game play. Typically, convertibles are heavier than their hardtop counterparts due to the roof mechanism and the need for additional body reinforcements to maintain rigidity. However, this vehicle will probably lose some weight as Porsche is simply removing elements to simplify the car.

The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder will join the lineup of vehicles in the game on September 29. It will be a nice trip to have fun around the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The electric powertrain is increasingly important to Porsche. The next EV on the horizon from the company is the Tiger. The future successor to the 718 Boxster and Cayman goes the same way. The company also confirmed the development of a seven-seat crossover. Plus, the Panamera might get an electric version to fit over the Taycan.
