Proto:Gran Turismo (PlayStation)
This page details one or more prototype versions of Gran Turismo (PlayStation).
Various demos of Gran Turismo have been released amongst many discs, all of them showcase differences to the final game.
| Test Drive Disc|
Dated August 2, 1997. Released as part of the PurePure demo disc series for PlayStation Club members (Volume 8 Disc 2).
| Trial Version Disc|
Dated October 27, 1997. Farther along than the Test Drive demo, with almost everything looking closer to the final game.
| Preview V2 Disc|
Dated November 13, 1997. A late internal Preview build with all modes accessible, predating the final Japanese version of the game by two weeks.
| US Demo Disc|
Dated March 3, 1998. A rarity amongst GT demos released outside Japan: access to Simulation Mode menus, showing localization in progress.
As the title suggests, this demo was playable in Japanese stores prior to the initial Japanese release. This showcases a build very similar (if not identical) to the Trial Version, but is considerably more open with every car and track in Arcade Mode unlocked (the Trial Version only lets you select the Honda NSX '97 and High Speed Ring) as well as the 90-second race timer being removed.
