Porsche Will "Probably" Hit GT5 Lineup
Gran Turismo fans have been waiting for the day when all the major car manufacturers would agree to put their name and their cars in the esteemed series. Unfortunately, some of the world's hottest supercars ('cough' the ones from Italy 'cough') never saw the light of day in GT, which was frustrating for the car enthusiast and racing fan in all of us.
However, things are definitely going to change in Gran Turismo 5, as we all know. Ferrari will make its grand entrance in the world's most popular video game racing simulator - we've already played with a couple in Prologue - and more never-before-seen cars will be available as well. But what about Porsche? If you want to get technical, they have been in previous GT titles under the name "RUF," but...well, that's still not Porsche. Thankfully, though, it's just another long-time absentee that series creator Kazunori Yamauchi claims will "probably" arrive in GT5. During an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, he said that by the time GT5 is ready, Polyphony Digital will have acquired "most" if not "all" of the major manufacturers. He was prompted about Porsche, and he just said, "probably."
There's no doubt that GT5 will be a masterpiece, but considering it's going for ultimate realism, they should certainly go for as many manufacturers they can get. Let's hope that Porsche will join Ferrari in the final product!
