Bit Tech reports GT5 will feature a round 1,000 cars, including a range of electric and hybrid cards like the Tesla Roadster. Another new snip of information is that the launch date of the game may be Q4 2009.
The listing of new cars was grabbed by fansite by GTPlanet and includes a bunch of other gameplay features and details that are being touted for the upcoming racing sim. Those new features apparently include more than 20 playable tracks in the game, spread out over 60 different layouts and courses, plus custom soundtrack support and the fact that 170 of the 1000 cars will have fully modelled interiors. On the downside, the vehicle damage system doesn't seem to be all there yet according to Eurogamer.
