    I won't accept any cover that doesn't showcase all 50 different Miatas in the game.

    Any assumptions about the key art being the cover art is on the individual. Nothing has ever suggested it actually will be, just assumptions and fan mockups.

    That being said, there is zero chance they'll actually make the decision based on what fans say. It's just about engagement.

    Yes They obviously will not choose a car that someone on Twitter told them to

    I said either the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, McLaren 765LT, Ford GT (2020 Version), Porsche 911 Turbo S (992), Aston Martin Valkyrie, Lamborghini Sián, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, BMW M8 Competition or Toyota Supra... my bets on the Supra...

    - Already a relatively “old” car at this point
    - Forza already used it 5 years ago

    C8 Corvette or the upcoming 400Z is my bet, since PD seems to have good relationships with both companies.
    Although I have feeling it could be a Porsche as well.

    It has to be the Daihatsu Copen, no discussion.

    I kind of want either the Koenigsegg Gemera or Lotus Evija to be on the cover of GT7, as they come from two brands that should be in the game nonetheless.

    Gran Turismo game covers have never featured a hypercar in the past so I don't think it will happen

    The F1(from cockpit view) was back then. We also got the Ford GT race car. Now the ultra hyper race car Red Bull X2019, is the "cover" for GT Sport 2.0. A hyper car is possible.

    Hypercars and Race Cars are totally different things

    That doesn't matter. The possibility to place a hyper car on a GT cover is 50:50. There's no absolute it won't happen.

    We've had road cars on most of the covers. Very fast cars, for those eras, on the cover. A few race cars. So, if a hyper car is NOT a race car, that increases the chance there could be a hyper car on the cover. Since a race car has less of a chance to be a GT cover car.

    I can guarantee you 100% that there will not be a hypercar on the cover of the game. Gran turismo was never known for hypercars and other than the Bugatti Veyron there are very very few hypercars in the existing games. Previous gran turismo games have had fast cars on the covers but nowhere near the level of the performance that a hypercar has

    Well, let's try this again. According to Wikipedia:
    Here's a hyper car(McLaren F1 cockpit view at speed), on the cover of a Gran Turismo game, as I pointed out(one of a few very fast cars on a Gran Turismo cover), as defined by wikepedia
    images (39).jpeg

    You can believe there won't be a hyper car on the cover full stop
    You can not guarantee me there won't be a hyper car on the cover.

    I guarantee a vehicle of some sort will be on the cover period

    Gran Turismo was also never known as a serious online eSports game. Things can always change.

    Its unofficial artwork but maybe it could lead to some clues?

    Since that box art is on Kaz's Twitter profile (apparently) quite a lot of us think that it is the final design.

    Since Kaz asked on Twitter a few days ago (9-2) which car should be the cover star, I believe it will not be the final version...

    Kaz didn't, the official GT account run by US social media managers did, and there is no way they actually take any suggestions from fans on what to put on the cover. Whether the real cover is already decided or not though, who knows.

    My guess would've been the Mazda GT concept before seeing that, but now i'm almost 100% sure.

    Thinking about it now, it would kinda make sense if the RX-Vision or any Mazda of sorts becomes the GT7 hero car, considering that Mazda is a partner of the FIA Gran Turismo Championship

    Definitely a placeholder. Final version will have the PS Studio & Polyphony digital logo, plus the esrb/age rated sticker as well.

    It's going to be interesting with Mazda and Porsche the new partners. With the GT Sport cover car being a Mercedes-Benz AMG, for the second time, I wonder how much they paid to have it featured.

    Thinking about the car sales article, also makes me wonder if the Porsche/Mazda cover will stay. Wouldn't make sense, at this point in time, to place any other car on the cover that isn't a partner of PD.

    Just seems like the way cars are presented has changed. If some manufacturers are wanting their cars at the forefront, I couldn't see Volkswagen on the cover over the two brands in Kaz' cover pic.

    I'd like to see the new Maserati as the hero car. I just fall in love with this beauty. Hopefully, we'll see it in the game.
