Those last two words are key: Gran Turismo.
That's because it is a joint effort between the creators of the well-known PlayStation video game and Nissan.
You bet your pants I am a little bummed out. The good news is that all the haters will not have much to talk about these days. But just imagine if it was a real-life mid-engined monster. Phew, the exotic automakers would be sweating a bit.
Anyhow, Nissan released a very short press release and a video showcasing its digital performance auto.
I am not sure about you guys and gals, but I am getting a bit tired of all these video game cars. In my eyes, this won't make a generation aspirational buyers.
Nissan's press release follows:
NASHVILLE. Tenn. (June 16, 2014) – Nissan today lifts the virtual covers off the NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, a vision of what a high performance Nissan could look like in the future. It was created through close collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo®, Polyphony Digital Inc., the legendary PlayStation® driving franchise.
