A $15,000 Gran Turismo Pod: Still Cheaper Than Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche

We're not sure where every dollar went in this $15,000 Gran Turismo Prologue Pod, but we can appreciate the integrated PS3, 40" screen, surround sound, racing seat, Logitech G25 wheel (which includes those fancy pedals) and stylish Plexiglas window. It's just a shame that the full version of Gran Turismo 5 isn't actually out yet, making this ubercabinet the world's most advanced demo kiosk. Still, here's another shot from the tech-fantastical cockpit:

@Daytodaz3: VERY true. I'll be going home after work to beat GRID for the 5th time with my Logitech Momo steering wheel myself. Love this stuff.

And I love the Porsche talk here. I've got to admit. I had a 944 in high school. Bought it for four grand from a neighbor. Fixed the ball joints and it rat like a dream. Handled like it was on rails and had enough get up and go in the normally aspirated version. For how antitraditional Porsche the 944 car is, it added a completely new consumer base for Porsche and provided MUCH needed capital while the company struggled in the 80s. I do agree teh Cayenne is an abomination though its ride is terrific and the Cayman is held back for fear of treading on 911 territory.

Though rocky road, turtle, sherbet and cookie dough are all good flavors of ice cream in their own regard. Vanilla is still the cash cow.
