GT Sport 1.38 Update Adds Five New Cars

The Porsche 962 C ‘88, new rounds for GT League, new Scapes for New Zealand, and more are coming to GT Sport in a free new update.

April’s content update for GT Sport, Patch 1.38, is now available for all drivers, featuring classic European race cars and stylish all-wheel-drive roadsters from the annals of motorsport history.

New Vehicles

Five new vehicles have rolled onto the Brand Central forecourt, including:

  • Porsche 962 C ’88
  • Renault R8 Gordini ’66
  • Audi TT Coupé 3.2 quattro ‘03
  • Honda Fit Hybrid ’14
  • Toyota Sprinter Trueno 3-door 1600GT APEX (AE86) ’83


Featured Vehicle: Porsche 962 C ’88 (Gr.1)

The Porsche 962 C is a prototype racing car Porsche that debuted in 1985 in order to compete in the WEC (World Endurance Championships). Porsche developed the 956 starting in 1982 for the WEC, fought under the FIA Group C category. The 956 showed spectacular performance from its debut year, winning races in the WEC as well as dominating the Le Mans 24-hour race. Thereafter, the 956 was improved for the IMSA-GTP of North America which had similar regulations as the WEC, and debuted in 1984 as the 962. Then in the following year of 1985 when the Group C safety regulations were changed to be in line with the IMSA-GTP, Porsche gave birth to the 962 C. It was powered by the flat six twin turbo engine that the Porsche 956 had refined in European races.

The Porsche 962 C brought many victories and championship titles home to Porsche, beginning with winning 7 out of 10 races in the WEC during its debut year. In 1986 it won four races out of nine in the WSPC (World Sports Prototype Championship), which took the place of the WEC. In 1987 it dominated Le Mans, and then placed second here in 1988.


GT League

A number of new rounds have also been added to existing GT league events.

  • Beginner League: 2 new rounds added to the Compétition de France.
  • Amateur League: 2 new rounds added to the Tourist Trophy.
  • Professional League: 2 new rounds added to the Group 1 Cup.

Finally, in Scapes mode, we’ve added “Embrace the natural beauty of Oceania” to the Specially Featured section, allowing players to snap stunning shots of New Zealand’s mountainous landscape. And in Sport Mode, a Global Manufacturer Ranking screen has been added to the Manufacturers Series section.

Remember, you can find all the latest GT info here on PlayStation.Blog and on the official Gran Turismo website. Until next time, drivers, we’ll see you out on the track.

    You guys pick the most odd cars to add to the game lol

    • Hey, there is still no Fiat Multipla…..

      Eh, with this batch I would say only the Fit is an odd car. People will always want Porsche and Audi. Brits love small cars like the Renault and they can be great for rallies. The Trueno is a cult classic thanks to the street racing manga Initial D as the main character drive one. They actually are making reference to it in the video. The Honda fit just feels like the slow kid who wants to hang out with the jocks.

    Gran Turismo 7/Sport 2 = Career Mode, Championships, starting grid, Climate Variations, damage, Time Progression, HUD Customization, Dynamic camera, Replay in 16:9, Rotate external camera with R3.

    • Why would we need all these features available in other games when we can have a Honda Fit?!?!??

  • Pls add 220 ST Mondeo ^_^

  • WackyMonster23

    I am impressed with Vr, should be everything except online.

  • The game has dramatically improved, but we’re still waiting for the classic Gran Turismo original tracks.

  • Hachiroku’s back…!

    deberian actualizar esos Autos que no permiten todavia su uso en Realidad Virtual, yo como Presentador de VR ONLINE de Gran Turismo Sports, hace dias tuve que improvisar debido a que un Auto de la Toyota no era compatible con el Tour VR, por favor Sony y Polyphony digital hagan compatibles esos autos para VR, urge! para poder seguir presentando esos autos, y asi cada semana poder transmitir sin problemas.
