Message from Gran Turismo Series Producer Kazunori Yamauchi on GT7 Opening Movie
Thank you all for your patience.
We are very happy to deliver our latest title, Gran Turismo 7, to you all.
GT7 is a title that packs all the elements expected by long-time fans of the series, while also making an effort to convey the profound and alluring car culture, even to those who have no knowledge about cars or don't drive.
With this 7-minute long movie, we wanted to paint a picture that could summarise the history of the relationship between cars, people, and society over the last 150 years. The intro features a brief history of automotive, starting from the very first proposal by Carl Benz to the latest EV, the Porsche Taycan.
Cars are mysterious objects that have been fascinating people for over a century since their birth, and I hope that you will be able to feel something from watching this movie that can expand your imagination. For reference, below you can find a list of events in chronological order included in this intro.
GT7 will receive regular updates adding more content and features. My hope is that GT7 will continue to be at your side, and that it will enrich everyone’s lives.
Now, please enjoy GT7.
