Gran Turismo 6 has the Vision Gran Turismo cars which are radical designs from real car designers at major automakers. Some of the cars exist purely digitally for gameplay, while others have been rendered as show cars as well. Participating companies range from Hyundai to Aston Martin, but one notable exception is Porsche. All of Porsche’s cars have been absent from Gran Turismo ever since the first game due to licensing issues, some of which have also plagued other game developers.
However, that has not stopped a small, independent team of designers from coming up with their own concept of a Porsche 908/4 for the video game. The team consisted of six people from around the globe – five automotive designers and one expert photo retoucher.
Inspiration was the 1969 Porsche 908 LH Langheck coupe race car, and this 908/04 shares the classic racer cars lengthy tail. The design also borrows from some current Porsche designs, including the 918 Spyder, and the Mission E electric concept that has been greenlit for production.
“We wanted to create a car that nobody makes anymore,” writes exterior designer Alan Derosier. “A ‘back-to-basics’ kind of feel, mainly focused on generating a feeling for the love of racing.”
Creating a raw, race car seems to be the goal of their design, as they say it is “a purely manual car” and that they want it to “give you goose bumps just by imagining yourself driving it.” It’s not meant to be a fantastical concept either, as the designers state they aimed to make it so someone could realistically fit inside and drive.
