GT Sport Patch 1.41 Adds 5 New Cars and New Rounds to the GT League

The new update includes the Porsche 911 Turbo (930) '81 and Honda Civic Type R (EK).

This month’s update includes a selection of new cars including the iconic Honda Civic Type R (EK) loved for its lightweight and compact chassis paired with a lively high revving VTEC engine. In addition, Porsche fans will be able to enjoy driving the first Porsche production car which featured a turbo charged engine in the form of the 911 Turbo (930).

The update will be available for everyone to enjoy tomorrow, July 31, at 12AM PT. (Internet connection required for update)

New Vehicles

In total, five new vehicles will be available:

  • Honda S800 ‘66
  • Honda Civic Type R (EK) ‘98
  • Jaguar D-type ‘54
  • Mazda Roadster Touring Car
  • Porsche 911 Turbo (930) ‘81

Featured Vehicle: Porsche 911 Turbo (930) ‘81

The first time that the word ʻTurboʼ appeared in the history of Porsche production models was in 1975. This was when they first started commercial sales of the ʻ911 Turboʼ, which implemented all of the turbocharging technologies they had developed and accumulated through their racing activities.

The front and rear overfenders of the car stuck out like a racing car, and a large rear wing occupied its rear end. The 3L aircooled flat 6 was equipped with a single KKK Turbocharger and produced 256 BHP. This allowed the car to reach a cruising speed of 155.3 mph, an incredible level of speed for a production car of its day.

From 1977, the displacement was increased to 3.3 litres, and an air cooled intercooler was added to raise the power to 295 BHP. Until 1985, models with these engines provided the highest specs in the standard lineup.

This version of the Porsche 911 Turbo was produced up to 1989, and is often referred to as the ʻ930 Turboʼ. The name comes from the type number within Porsche development being 930, and because the pre-production model displayed at the Paris motor show a year before its release was displayed as the ʻ930 Turboʼ.

GT League

Five new rounds have been added to the league including new rounds of the World Hatchback Championship, Nostalgia 1979 and X2019 Competition Endurance Series.

  • I hope we will see the cars from 1.40 and 1.41 available for purchase from the PS Store. Would love to take them all for a spin around the tracks in PSVR. Also, feel free to open up the $20,000,000 cars for purchase as well. I will pay $19.99 for them if you give me the opportunity. I love GT Sport VR, and I am fully invested in helping fund the future of Gran Turismo VR. Give me a chance to help out.

    Keep on bringing the updates. Even being limited to 1V1 and Time Trials, GT Sport in PSVR is my favorite Driving expereince across all platforms this generation. I can’t wait to see what you guys and gals can do with PS5 and PSVR2.

    Final thought. I really want to see Laguna Seca join the fun. If not on PS4, please have it ready for PS5.

    Thanks for All You Do!

    GT Sport is the best racer this gen and i personally love the service style, but i believe the game will garner better reviews/sales with a more robust version at launch. Hopefully GT7 has been in full development development for a while. It would mean a lot as a PS5 launch title.

    That beautiful Jaguar D-type ‘54 is going to look rather splendid whizzing around the Goodwood Revival circuit.

    Dear Mr. Kazunori Yamauchi,

    nice new cars. But theres a BIG PROBLEM in the whole game. Somethings wrong with the penalty system in GT Sport! Drivers ar trying hard to dirve fair, like myself, are getting always penalties for NO REASON – by the faults of other drivers – while these drivers are ramming and pushing drivers of the track and getting NO penalties.

    Please think about that. Im playing this game for 2 Years ever day and i like it very much. But sometimes it´s so unbelievable frustrating that i want to quit with it.

    Have you plans to korrect the AI?
