Below are my predictions for the car and track list in Gran Turismo 7. I’ve complied this list based on various sources, from their inclusion in previous series entries to various news stories published here on GT Planet. I’ve also added a few of my own considerations based on their place within automotive history. Please bear in mind this is NOT a wish list. Besides each entry I've written a small piece of commentary as to why I believe it will feature in GT7.


I’ve suggested about 160 cars plus in total. This is based on approximately the number of new vehicles released in both Gran Turismo 6 and GT Sport. Feel free to make suggestions below on new and returning cars and tracks you think I may have missed. Make a case as to why you think it’s a possible prediction and I’ll get your proposal added to the list. I see this list as being a collaborative effort and will be great to see how accurate we've been when the final game drops.


ABARTH
124 Spider ’17
- 2019 GT Sport Supra survey.
595 ’20 - 2019 GT Sport Supra survey. Would also represent a more current model for the brand than the present Fiat 500 Abarth

- Pebble Beach winner 2018

ALFA ROMEO
Giulia Gr.3
- Updated PDI Gr.3 concept for the manufacturer.

TZ3 Stadale ’11 - PS3 Premium. This or the 8C. Or both.
8C ’08 - PS3 Premium. This or the TZ3 Stradale. Or both.
Spider 1600 Duetto ’66 - The quintessential Alfa Romeo roadster. Present in series from GT4 to GT6.

Vantage AMR GT4 '20 – Updated PDI Gr.4 concept for the manufacturer.

AUDI
R8 LMS (Type 4S) GT4 '20
– Updated Gr.4 representation for the manufacturer.
RS5 (F5) ’20 - Current super saloon for Audi. No saloon representation for Audi in GT Sport despite them having a strong presence in games past.
RS6 Avant (C8) ’20- Audi’s flagship RS model. Similar reasons to the above.
R8 5.2 FSI Coupe (Type 4S) ’16- Second generation model of Audi’s halo sports car. Competition model already present in GT Sport. Found it strange how we’ve never had the road car variant.
R10 TDI ’06 - PS3 Premium.

- Very likely given the Bugatti VGT debuted the design language for the Chiron.
EB110 ’91 - Classic 90s supercar heavily requested by the GT Planet community. Great additional alongside a newly remastered Jaguar XJ220. Possibly scanned.

CADILLAC
CT5-V ’20
- Cadillac as a brand currently missing from GT Sport. Previously represented in GT6 as the CTS-V ’11.

FERRARI
SF90 Stradale ’20
- 2019 GT Sport Supra survey mention.
Portofino ‘19 - 2019 GT Sport Supra survey mention. Precedent set by the past inclusion of a previous entry level Ferrari, the California.
812 Superfast ‘19 - 2019 GT Sport Supra survey mention.
488 GTB ’16 or F8 Tributo ’20 - Both mentioned in 2019 GT Sport Supra survey mention. I expect the 488 but have my doubts about the F8. PDI have never been great when it comes to featuring up to date Ferrari models.
488 GT3 - Updated Gr.3 representation for the manufacturer.
F430 ’06 and/or Ferrari 599 ’06 - PS3 Premiums. F430 seems the most likely as it was Ferrari’s leading model of the era (alongside the Enzo).

Testarossa 80s - Heavy requested by the GT Planet community.
512 S ’70 - If we get a vintage Porsche 917 then I expect to see this drop as it was a key rival during the early 1970s. No 917 however then no 512S as the former is far mort important historically.
330 P4 Spyder ‘66 - Pebble Beach winner 2016

GT40 Mk.1 J.W. Automotive Engineering (Gulf Racing colours) ’69 – 1969 Le Mans winner. Racing variant of the GT40 as we only have the road going version.
Ford Mustang GT Coupe ‘65 - The original Mustang. We already have the Shelby GT350 so some modelling data already exists for PDI.

Ford Coupe ‘Bruce Levins’ ’51 – SEMA winner 2016

KOENIGGSEGG – NEW BRAND

You missed my favourite Nissan off that list btw so I'll mention it here!

We night not see all GT Sport cars in the next game. Mentioned above, some models may be replaced with updated versions.

It's random we got the McLaren Mercedes and the McLaren F1 race car.
Random again to get the Beat, Copen and the S660.

Is there a guarantee cars will be ported to the next game or remodelled. We were told it'll be easier to move cars to the next GT, but we were also told the same about GT6 to GT7/Sport.

PD could totally not add the F50 and 993 in the next game. I didn't expect any of the DLC cars once I got the game. I hoped, suspected, speculated, all that, but it'll be interesting what the car list looks like in GT_.

No way the original Honda NSX is not included in the next game. The list overall seams great but the glaring absence of the 1st gen NSX cought my attention.

Well, as some people already stated: I surely expect not all, but most cars from GT Sport in GT7. Tons of cars that never appeared in GT before, and maybe even some that have been all time GT classics, such as the early 2000's JGTC cars to add that little bit of Gran Turismo 3 drizzle. I'd definitely appreciate that. I also think we could very well see more classic Le Mans racers. More Group C machinery or even some 70's monsters. Regarding modern race cars: I'm thinking we're going to see some more SuperGT cars, and with that I mean updated versions of the GT500's present in GT Sport. Sure, the RC F would be replaced by the LC 500, but you get the idea. Also: "proper" GT300 cars. BRZ GT300, Prius GT300, you name the lot. What might be a far call: more touring cars. Something like TCR or even V8 Supercars. Formula cars? Who knows. A lot of people would love it. We already have a 2017 F1 racer in the game, and I can't imagine that it's not gonna make the jump to GT7. But if not... Formula Gran Turismo, anyone?

In addition to that, I guess we'll see a different class system. No Gr. 1, Gr. 2, Gr. 3, etc stuff. GT3's will race in the GT3 class, LMP1's will race in LMP1, Group C will race in Group C, and so on...

Another bold prediction is a collaboration with a major racing series.

And now: tracks. I'll try to make it as short as possible: current tracks, new tracks and old classics.

Features? Livery Editor will be updated. X-axis, Y-axis. A feature to group certain layers, more paint finishes for decals, fully customizable and relocateable number plates. Custom window banners and (relocateable) name plates.
GT Auto makes it's return, with the return of Racing Modifications. GT Auto will also be the place to give your car a new set of wheels (instead of the Livery Editor). Visual tuning also makes it's long awaited return, with real aftermarket brands for different body parts such as rear wings, bumpers, side skirts, mirrors and more. You'll also see some sort of data sheet that shows how each part affects or improves your car's aerodynamics and recommends you the optimal choice for your needs. The classic GT Auto features will obviously come back as well.

Mechanical tuning also makes it's return, again with real aftermarket brands or OEM tuning (Nismo with Nissan, RALLIART with Mitsubishi, etc.).

Career mode will also see a host of new features, although I'm not quite sure what could be possible. Maybe your own team, like in Grid or F1 2020?

Online will mostly stay the same.

And there goes my huge list of predictions for GT7. And as always: take 'em with a pinch of salt.

I expect that a some electric hypercars will arrive to GT7 such as Lotus Evija, Pininfarina Battista or Rimac Concept One.

Please have the following tracks return:
Seattle
El Capitan
Midfield
Tokyo R246
Rome Circuit

Sooooooo much nostalgia. *sigh*

I agree, it would be great to have some of the historic originals added back in. I think the new breed of original tracks seen in sport are really strong and offer a good variation in racing across their layouts amongst the slower and faster categories, but it'll be great to have a few of the top ones from yester year back with a nice bit of remodelling.

- Seattle
- Deep Forest
- Trial Mountain
- Costa di Amalfi
- Citta D'Aria (I mean it's more for fun than anything as it's a nightmare to race on :lol:)

I'd like to see some Real World Circuits return, with a few more added;

- Twin Ring Motegi (All Variations)
- Daytona
- Indianapolis
- Ascari
- Imola (New)
- Donnington (New)
- Istanbul Park (New)
- Kyalami (New)

It would be great for PD to obtain some licenses for race series, similar to what they had for NASCAR in GT6 (Maybe Formula E , V8 Supercars) which could add some additional Career mode strands as well as offering some good Online options.

How many new tracks at launch do we expect to see? I reckon approximately 16 or so based on what GT Sport launched with. We're probably looking at:

4 Real World Tracks - Silverstone, Motegi and a few new to series. in terms of prestigious motorsport venues, Imola and Hockenheim come to mind. To a lesser extent Yas Marina, Circuit of the Americas, Zandvoort and Paul Ricard. For reference, GT Sport over its lifetime debuted 4 new to series circuits (Interlagos, Catalunya, Autopolis & Goodwood).

3 City Tracks - Monaco, Rome and a new to series location serving as a graphical showcase for the PS5 (think Prague or Rio when new iterations of Forza launched).

3 Original Tracks (existing) - Most likely The Gran Turismo Holy Trinity. This is such a no brainer for PDI to develop and would be rapturously received by the community. However expect some significant tweaks for the circuits to be deemed FIA worthy. Trial Mountain on PS5 should look the absolute business!

3 Original Tracks (new) - Something in the vein of Dragon Trail, Lago Maggiore and Yamigawa. PDI have a habit of providing multiple circuits at the same venue so expect to see a multitude of variations. These will be designed from the outset for use in the FIA GT World Tour and will resemble real world circuits more so than say PDI's original creations of games past (say Cape Ring or the the Swiss tracks of GT6).

3 Rally Tracks - One of which may be Pikes Peak. A precedent established by both Gran Turismo 5 and GT Sport, both launching with 3 original circuits a piece. We know PDI have the Pikes Peak licence, now let's see what they do with it. If it does debut then naturally we should expect to see accompanying Hill Climb vehicles, mist likely the VW ID R and the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak (both previous winners). Probably some Monster Tajima classics as well. Would be nice to see the Escudo again!


CITY TRACKS IN DEPTH
Excited to see what city tracks PDI have instore for us as they've been sorely lacking in GT Sport. They're so well suited for cars in the N100 to N300 categories. GT Sport to me just didn't present enough satisfying venues for hooning hatchbacks around on.

I've already mentioned Rome and Monaco as the most probable candidates but I'm trying to think what other major cities may crop up. Historically we've had:

PS3 Era
London
Madrid
Monte Carlo: Monaco GP circuit
Rome
Tokyo: Route 246
Special Stages 5, 7 and 11 circuits (fictional).

PS2 Era
Assisi (Città di Aria)
Capri Island (Costa di Amalfi, albeit a fictional take on this stunning Italian island)
Hong Kong
Las Vegas Drag Strip
Paris
New York
Seattle
Seoul

Thinking on Seattle for a moment. I know it's hugely popular amongst the community (and deservedly so) but it's such an odd choice for PDI to choose as a venue. Did Kaz holiday in the Pacific NW and just fall in love with the place?
 
33
Netherlands
Rotterdam
GTJG44
AVVSOM3
This is what I think GT7 will look like at launch.

GT Sport had 28 locations in the game, with these tracks the number would rise to 40 locations. Which sounds like a good and even number.

Car List


GT Sport counts 335 cars in total, I think some of the Gr3. and Gr4. cars will be updated to later models, which means the older models might disappear. Knowing PD however, these may stay in the game to up the car count. In the end I expect there to be 500+ cars.

Old fan favorites will return with new cars never before seen, like the Mitsubishi Starion and Lamborghini Espada.

Features

3 Original Tracks (existing) - Most likely The Gran Turismo Holy Trinity. This is such a no brainer for PDI to develop and would be rapturously received by the community. However expect some significant tweaks for the circuits to be deemed FIA worthy. Trial Mountain on PS5 should look the absolute business!

It would be nice to have both versions, like some racing games have 2 versions for the same track (old Spa and new Spa, old Monza and new Monza, etc). The FIA complient would be the one used in Sport Mode, but the other one could be used in lobbies, offline, and TT.

Your list looks pretty good, although I feel like 70% will be accurate, and the rest will be cars coming out of nowhere that nobody asked for. Not necessarily a bad thing, but PD likes to completely shatter our expectations.

As a side note, I think your list needs the Pontiac Fiero.. that absolute legend of a car which brought the mid-engine layout to the average American driver.

Semi-realistically I can see almost every licensable Premium cars to return in a future GT game (this includes Lotus since I assume they'll mend bridges by the next game). Might also throw in some important cars that were formerly Standard in the PS3 era, too.
