    The 918 looks nothing like any new Porsche's. And oh you can say the same about BMW.

    PD could put some Porsche in the game, but they would have to buy a temporary Porsche license like Turn 10 did with Forza Motorsport 4.
    Who knows? Perhaps they will do that as DLC.

    They could, if the price isn't ridiculously high (as it appears to have been for even Turn 10).

    I can only agree with this.

    Besides Mercedes (my dads old car) and Ferrari/Fiat (F1) I only got attached to other car brands through Gran Turismo.

    GT made me fall in love with Honda thanks to the NSX.
    GT got me interested into Corvettes. GT showed me what wonderful cars they are, I also grew attached into other Chevrolet cars. GT also rekindled my love for Toyota thanks to the GT86.

    Now, I will never be able to afford a Ferrari and new Mercedes cars are out of reach for me too, but maybe Fiats, Hondas and Toyotas.

    I never got that kind of attachment to Porsche. I didn't grew up seeing them dominate the 24h LeMans, I didn't experience them in GT. I only get into contact with that brand by seeing Porsches driven either by old man or young women. Im sure that someone who grew up in the 70s or 80s will have a very different view than me.

    Translating from that (using only babelfish though). From the initial tweet:

    "GT6 will also be present on our stand"

    And the response tweet:

    "you have l' eye"

    Terribly murky translation there.


    Anyhow, pretty sure this does not mean Porsche is in GT6, only that its up there due to the playstation sponsorship.

    you have to wonder, people pay big money to want their cars in Gran Turismo. IF this team want their car in GT6, there must be some clause to override EA.

    I would really love it if PD gave us some insight on how this process works.

    I know I would. It's like the guy Magnus Walker that fashions old 911s and then sells them. he owns the car, designs, modifies then, sells the car. A person brings their vintage 911 to him and he customises it. does he need Porsche's permission to sell the car as a 911? If I buy a 911 and I want my PERSONAL 911 in GT6( remember, Kaz owned/owns a 911), do I really have to go via EA and get permission? Again, Mark Webber owns a 911 GT2, if he or anyone famous like a Glickenhaus, want their personal 911 in Gran Turismo, must they ask EA first? Or is it good enough to just change the name to Yamauichi911 or Webber911?

    I believe the more accurate translation is:

    "GT6 will be present in our booth/stand"

    "[Is that a] Porsche?"

    "You have a good eye"


    In other words someone asked if the car in the picture was a Porsche and they said yes. Not exactly earth shattering.

    Like I said, it was only with babelfish as I really don't know of any better translator.

    As for the 2nd translation, pretty much figured it was no big deal.

    Exactly.

    I am sure Yamauchi-san would be very aware of these guys considering he has a Porsche himself and no doubt it gets a massive "HAI!"

    I will love to see Porsche in Gran Turismo 6, I really like Porsche, and even know Gran Turismo have RUF, I will prefer Porsche, but hey if we can't get it, wont change my mind and I will still buy Gran Turismo 6. I hope they can at least make every RUF a premium car! :D

    Hi SlipZtrEm, thanks for advising - apologies thought double posting was the same post by one's self posted twice *facepalm*. GTP is the only forum I take part in online so I wasn't aware that's what a double post was. You learn something new everyday! I will respond individually from now on.

    That's not possible until PD pays the price EA is asking for.

    I think the 918 looks very much like a porsche whilst also having its own distinct look, same as the Carrara GT did

    Kaz would like you to know that they are looking into the possibilities, and pigs may fly with a future update.

    Whatever way you look at it, its odd they have a Porsche in front of the GT6 booth, if they had sorted some sort of liscence out i dont think we would know until the content is actually released as it would make a huge surprise for GT fans that no one would be expecting anyway.

    Someone must of specifically sourced a Porsche for the booth and surely they would of been told it would be a foux pas seeing as it is the one big player/manufacturer that everybody talks about not actucally being present in the game.

    Definatly makes you think it may be possible.

    This thread can be closed a long time ago...
    There will not be Porsche in Gran Turismo, untill PD comes with great news. If it was in GT6, the great news would have been here for some weeks ago, so no!

    I think PD is getting closer to being somewhat able to include Porsches. Way back in the GT2 days, the manufacturer description of RUF was that they were a complete reworking of "a famous german sports car" but in GT5 when reading the yellowbird's description Porsche themselves are mentioned at least once.

    A lot of people on here have, it's just advertising that PD is allowed to use and nothing more. A car manufacture allowing PD to use their logo on a race track doesn't automatically mean they can use their cars too.
