    This got me thinking. I hope that the autonomous part of the car isn't programmed as the AI in GT4.

    I wonder if they'll release a Premium version and a cheaper Standard version that's squarer?

    I'm sure Sony spent all this effort, time and money making this running engineering prototype car just so PD could pad their car list.

    A little late to the design discussion party but wow, this Sony concept looks so much better than anything Tesla has made so far.

    Anyways all I see out of this car is some road tests for PR, maybe an inclusion in GT and then it fading away into obscurity as a tech demo for Sony automotive components.

    It's a shame if this car wouldn't make it into production.

    Why not? Because the default suspension settings make it snap oversteer in corners? No "Look behind" button? Can't activate Cones and Driving Line? :sly:;)

    It is a Gran Turismo reference?

    Is my previous post not correct because this car getting produced would be a good thing.

    That was to be expected. Which is actually a shame because this car has potential.
