Kaz posted a picture of three cars that had been darkened to hint at some of Gran Turismo 7’s latest additions. The game will continue to offer free updates long after it has been published, and this is just one its many planned updates. For what it’s worth, Polyphony Digital classifies them all as “free updates,” so there’s a potential that they’ll eventually release some paid DLC.
