Series producer Kazunori Yamauchi has once again tweeted a customary shadowy teaser image, which provides a hint to new content due soon.
This time, it’s four cars under the cloak of darkness. Here’s what we think some of them may be, but you can also let us know your guess in the comments below.
This diminutive Formula 1 car is from 1964 and was the first entry into the single-seater series by the Tokyo-based manufacturer. It was also the first F1 car from a Japanese company and used a unique 1.5-litre V12 engine.
A historically significant vehicle, only one was ever produced and it competed in just three Grand Prix.
First launched in 1955, the Citroën DS looks other-worldly today, never mind 68 years ago.
It features hydropneumatic suspension for a pillowy ride and the ability to stay level, even if, let’s say, an assassination attempt shoots out one of your tyres. This is exactly what happened to French President Charles de Gaulle in 1962.
Will that help your lap times around Trial Mountain? Unlikely, but yet again, another car of heritage in the Gran Turismo 7 collection.
A Porsche 911 variation
There are several classic Porsches in Gran Turismo 7, but none from the original 911 line, which ran between 1964 and 1989, before being replaced by the 930 generation.
The latter model is present, with a Turbo, in the game, and one of the sports cars that preceded the 911, the 356, is also present.
While this silhouette is clearly one of the early models, the specificity of the exact engine and trim level remains a mystery. It does feature a ducktail, which first appeared on the Carrera RS 2.7.
Mysterious concept car
The middle car of the image is unknown at present. The Gran Turismo series has, since Gran Turismo 6, worked with car manufacturers directly to create ‘Vision GT’ concepts, and it could be another addition to the roster.
Of note, Korean luxury car manufacturer Genesis teased a new concept at the Salzburg Gran Turismo World Series Showdown last year and industry giant Ford has not yet produced a vehicle in this series. Colour us intrigued.
“Big updates are coming next week,” reads Yamauchi’s tweet, in an uncharacteristically portentous fashion.
