Gran Turismo Finally Adds a Noticeably Missing Automaker

Virtual racers can finally get behind the wheel of a Porsche in Gran Turismo Sport.

For as long as the Gran Turismo franchise has existed, Sony and Polyphony Digital were unable to include Porsche sports cars due to an exclusivity deal with Electronic Arts. But as we reported last year, that deal has finally ended and now other racing series get to benefit. Sony PlayStation’s Twitter account confirmed that Porsche is heading to the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4, along with new tracks.

So far Sony has only shared images of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in the game, but we expect more models will join it by the time Gran Turismo Sport is released sometime this year. The game is currently hosting a closed beta that you’ll have to sign up for and get invited to, if you want to check it out.
