The Tokyo Game Show begins tomorrow and you would have thought that would have been the place to make any game announcements. This should go double for a Japanese developer. Polyphony Digital decided not to go down this route and instead chose the Frankfurt Motor Show instead. However, it does make some sense as the announcement was about the new Porsche Taycan (pronounced tie-can) Turbo S coming to Gran Turismo Sport. This isn’t the only Porsche that will be added to the game, though. The Porsche 917 Living Legend concept car and the Porsche Vision Gran Tourismo Project will be coming to the game. Here’s the trailer for the Porsche Taycan announcement –
The Taycan is an important car for Porsche as it marks their first all-electric vehicle. The name may be a little misleading as the car doesn’t have a turbo but this is still a very exciting car. With the car costing around $185,000 driving one in Gran Turismo Sport may be the closest that us mere mortals will get owning one. The Taycan Turbo S should arrive in the game sometime in October. They’re hoping to add the Porsche 917 Living Legend concept car in the first half of 2020. You’ll have to wait until the end of next year to try out the Porsche Vision Gran Tourismo Project.
