The Porsche VisionGT, a virtual race car created for Sony PlayStation Gran Turismo 7, also helping designers prepare for the future.
The Vision GT car is rated at 1,274 hp (950 kW).
“A vehicle designed purely for the virtual world opens up exciting possibilities for us that are otherwise heavily regimented in a regular design process for a series production car,” explains Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche. “Projects such as the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo are particularly valuable for us in the creative process.”
Fabian Schmölz, a Porsche exterior designer,explains:
“In real life, if you have an expensive hypercar, you might be too afraid to push the boundaries on the track. So this is why we made it -the VisionGT- small and fun-looking, so you’ll want to enjoy it.”
“For sure the world is changing, and this is going to affect our process and push it further. With a project like a video game, this pushes the boundaries of how far you can actually achieve certain qualities.”
