Given how a large amount of cars added through updates in Gran Turismo Sport are those that were often labelled as "Premium" in the PS3 games (Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Turismo 6), I've decided to create this blog post.

The aim of this blog post is to list every Premium car from the PS3 games currently not featured in Gran Turismo Sport. However, not all of these vehicles will have an equal chance to being included through a future update, either due to similar models already being included, licensing questions, etc. As such, vehicles that for me are unlikely to appear will be marked with the "NL" (Not Likely) label.

The following list does not include:

  • Cars already present in GT Sport. If a car included in this list will be added in GT Sport, it will be removed.
  • Cars that are unobtainable through normal means.
  • Alternate/limited edition variants (Base Model, Chrome Line, Stealth Model, etc.).

Personal considerations

  • The main reason for listing the 2010, 2011 and 2013 NASCAR cars as "Not Likely" to return is due to the fact that Monster Energy is now the title sponsor of the NASCAR Cup Series, instead of Sprint Corporation, which sponsored the competition up to 2016. As such, if an update will introduce NASCAR stock cars in the game, cars based on the 2017 or 2018 seasons are the ones with the most chances to appear, instead of the ones carrying the logos of the former title sponsor.
    • Despite that, I'm starting to think that NASCAR vehicles would be a good addition to the game, considering the fact that there are already two NASCAR-styled tracks in the game (Blue Moon Bay Speedway and Northern Isle Speedway). Also, these cars would have a huge potential for replica liveries, either from real-life or from videogames that use fictional NASCAR-style cars (such as the Hornet from Daytona USA and the various Hotring cars from the Grand Theft Auto games, just to make some examples). However, chances for this to happen are quite low, if Daytona and/or Indianapolis are not in the game.
  • Given the fact that Sebastian Vettel left Red Bull Racing at the end of 2014, any Vettel reference on the Red Bull X Fan Cars will be edited out. While this should only cause the removal of the driver's name on said cars (with the colored variant of the X2010 being the sole exception as it was the only one to not include any Vettel reference), it will also cause a name change on the RBR-liveried X2010, which contained a Vettel reference in its name.
  • Lotus vehicles are currently marked as "Not Likely" due to ongoing licensing issues. These licensing issues caused the removal of the 2011 Elise and 2009 Evora in the late stages of development (these two cars were playable in early builds).
  • While licensed Formula One cars are unlikely to return, there may be chances for these cars to be reworked into fictional versions, much like how the Lotus 97T was reworked into the F1500T-A, which is practically the same car except for the removal of an aerodynamic appendage on the sidepods.
    • If other Formula One vehicles will be reworked into fictional vehicles, the F2007 and F10 could be potentially reworked into the "F2400-A" and "F2400-B" (based on the 2006-2008 and 2009-2010 F1 regulations, respectively).
  • Racing karts might come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but outside the already included 125 Shifter kart, I don't think we will see other karts in the game.
  • The addition of the Ford GT LM Spec II Test Car back in July 2018 made me think about the possibility of seeing other fictional race cars from the PS3 games. Some of these vehicles wouldn't look out of place in the game, though a good portion of them will end up in the Gr.4 category, albeit with some "buffs" or "nerfs" in order to balance them with the already included cars. One of the Corvette C6 LM Race Cars could end up in the Gr.3 category, while the situation for a few of these (such as the GT-R R35 Touring Car or the Cappuccino Race Car) will be a little problematic, as they are either too powerful or too weak for certain categories, or don't fit the category at all (to make an example, the FIA GT3 regulations, on which the Gr.3 category is based on, only allows rear-wheel drive cars). Still, in order to see these fictional cars in the game, the presence of their road-going versions would be required.
