After a week of Forza Motorsport stealing headlines, Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.17 was teased by Kazunori Yamauchi over the weekend.

We know that three new cars are on their way, along with the usual slew of bug fixes, but what else could be in the next GT7 update?

Latest news - Watkins Glen arriving!

The trailer for the next update on Gran Turismo 7 has arrived, and along with confirming the three cars that we will get, Polyphony has also confirmed the introduction of Watkins Glen to GT7!

This is the first new track added to GT7 since release and is a huge breath of fresh air for the game.

We are also waiting on the ability to sell cars. Something that was described as "near-term" back in March, so Polyphony is running out of time to deliver on that promise.
