This is the discussion thread for an article on GTPlanet:
On GT7 final race🤔This could be the car for the final round of the GT Sport Porsche Asia Pacific Cup, which will take place on December 12.
Wishful thinking, but hey.
Who said anything about a trailer?Hope to see new GT7 content in this trailer (tracks and other stuff)..
Quali and Race times for F1 are 3 hours after the GT streams."Formula 1 STC Saudi Arabian Grand Prix"
WHICH ONE SHOULD I WATCH?!?!
The bugatti VGT and the Audi E tron exists in real life and there is enough space in the game for a few VGTs,real life cars are still the majorityWhoop dee doo, more imaginary cars based on imaginary technology that even if it were somehow real would probably be made in single digit numbers with an eight digit price tag.
So much for Gran Turismo going back to it's roots: the game where you got to drive and modify everyday cars.
It's not about what there's space for in the game, there's space for a couple of Wipeout anti-grav ships if they wanted. VGTs were a cute idea that went off the rails when the car manufacturers started using it as a means to swordfight with their e-peens.The bugatti VGT and the Audi E tron exists in real life and there is enough space in the game for a few VGTs,real life cars are still the majority
It's almost like this is a discussion forum or something...People still seething about VGT cars 8 years later.
Sounds like the entire Gran Turismo series, from 1997 to 2022, just isn't for you then.I am not interested in fictional cars.
Why is there an "instead"? We're not missing out on cars in Gran Turismo because some other cars are there instead; we get all the cars we can get. Omitting a car doesn't mean it can be replaced with something else, it means it's omitted.Instead they should bring some rare, but real, prototypes to the game
I mean, it's literally in the name. Vision Gran Turismo. Their vision of a Gran Turismo car. It's not the same as Kaz saying the next game will have the best physics ever.People still seething about VGT cars 8 years later. Like how people take what Kaz says in a single instance like 9 years ago super seriously as their point as if things are never subject to change and as if Kaz himself never changes what he thinks. While at the same time never believing what Kaz says about game features and the like because he "isn't reliable".
Yeah i hope this porsche is at least a little bit relatable. Something Akin to a 918 maybe?It's not about what there's space for in the game, there's space for a couple of Wipeout anti-grav ships if they wanted.

At best it's pure marketing bollocks. They're random engineering projects that have less real world application than most concept cars. At least if they all fit in a single racing category there could be something around having a manufacturers challenge. But Polyphony's failure to set any bounds on the project meant that manufacturers were free to do whatever they wanted, from the plausible BMW and Honda to the slightly bonkers but cool looking Mercedes to the outright impossible Chaparral and Dodge.
Hell, the cars are supposed to be Grand Tourers, hence the name. From the Gran Turismo VGT page: "The Vision Gran Turismo project started with a single question from Gran Turismo founder Kazunori Yamauchi: “Would you design your rendition of the ideal GT for us?” GT stands for Gran Turismo or Grand Tourer (where the game got its name from), which describes a sporty performance coupe."
Half of them are just race cars that would be defeated by a sleeping policeman, and at this point I wish the entire thing would bugger off and they would start again with some actual restrictions that would require the manufacturers to design something at least moderately related to the initial concept.
Have to agree with you there.That’s been one of the reasons for arguments through the years, assets could have been used to build a 1983 Cadillac, than taking the time to model a fantasy car.
Doesn’t bother me. We get what we get. I’ll complain a little about cars I wish we had.
If a Porsche VGT is not a sporty performance coupe, I don't know what would be one.which describes a sporty performance coupe."
I genuinely have a hard time understanding why people still have an issue with this in 2021. Should this be in GT ? Should it be less ridiculous and more realistic ? Is it a marketing ploy ? Its all debatable and I understand the debate but at the same time it shouldn't be debatable at all because its all pretty moving numbers and letters with nice sounds at the end of the day. Whether or not this thing should be in the game instead that thing and allocating assets, dev time, budget in a brand that has built to be fake and make money from people twiddling their thumbs thumbs on tiny round sticks and pressing triggers OR a toy steering wheel.

People are still "seething" because it was supposed to be a short year long project in Gran Turismo 6 for the 15th anniversary, now we're running into the third game where they're taking a large part of the spotlight.
GT has always had concepts, but they were usually concepts of real future road cars, like the 350Z, GT-R, Viper, NSX, RX8, etc, most of which carried over from the specific Concept Car game. It was fun to drive what we knew were coming as real road cars before they released. Most of the VGT cars however have been wacky spaceships that will never be made, only a few were actually based on future real cars.
There was also the percentage issue. GT4 had around 30 concept cars out of 700, less than 5%. GTS, at launch, had 34 out of 162. 20% of the cars were VGTs. It's not going to be as bad as that on GT7, ~45 out of ~420, so back down to 10%. But they're still pretty abundant. There could have been another 20-30 real cars if they hadn't been modelling VGTs.
So on the contrary, I don't know why people still have a hard time understanding why other people dislike the VGT program.
