Gran Turismo from Playstation is one of the most well known racing simulation series. Porsche was never a part of this series as the brand had an exclusive licensing arrangement with EA Games. Porsche had an exclusive licensing deal with EA (Electronic Arms) Games, which is the studio behind the Real Racing and Need for Speed series. EA had the exclusive game rights, and every other game developer that wanted to include Porsche had to get permission from EA. This made it difficult to license Porsche’s cars. This is why Porsche cars were seen only rarely in games like the Forza Motorsport series. Now that the agreement has expired, Porsches will finally free to be featured as part of the Gran Turismo games.
The first Porsche to make an appearance in the famous Gran Turismo series will be the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It will make an appearance in the next installment of Gran Turismo, which will be called Gran Turismo Sport.
Gran Turismo Sport will feature replicas of standard Porsches that are accurate down to the finest details like the bolts on the wing supports to the blank buttons on the center console. It is likely that the game will be released soon a closed beta program for Gran Turismo Sport has already been released to select players. Gran Turismo Sport will initially include 140 cars. The game was initially slated for release in 2016 but this has now been postponed to late 2017.
