Because they felt like it? why would Polyphony say "We're working on GT7." back in 2014, and then announce Gran Turismo Sport instead of the oh-so-longed-for "Gran Turismo 7", can you explain it to me that?
Because they decided to change the name partway through, or they just didn't want to spoil the surprise. Everyone was expecting GT7 next, it was the next obvious game so it was no harm Kaz talking about "GT7", even if he already knew at that stage it was really GTS. It's called misdirection.
People have said many times in the game code there are references to GT7, or GT7SP. GT Sport was the game they were developing at that time, there is absolutely no evidence that a 2nd game, an actual GT7, was in development alongside it. I mean if it was, "GT7" that would mean has been in development for over 6 years now. I highly doubt it, PD don't have the resources.
