GranTurismo is back on Kickstarter

I told you we'd be back! The new GranTurismo Magazine campaign is now live on Kickstarter.

We learned so much from our first campaign, and we've applied all that knowledge to our new campaign. New video, new appeal, and an updated plan.

In response to requests last time, we've added more digital-only options. We've also added more availability to our most popular offer, the $100 "Ton Up" level, and we've upgraded the Nicolas Hunziker shirt from a tee to a polo.

Please, check out the new campaign here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/982137916/granturismo-magazine-the-best-of-european-motoring

We hope you'll support this project again and help spread the word so we can make it a reality this time.

Thanks again,

Bryan Joslin

Thank you for your support and encouragement

As you now know, GranTurismo Magazine missed its goal of raising just under $25,000 for its first-issue launch. We came in with just under $15,000, which we're still very proud to have achieved. 

I want to personally thank each and every one of you who contributed to the project. The support from family and friends was overwhelming and heartwarming. Perhaps more important in the long term were the contributions from people outside that circle - the people who showed there is a genuine interest in a new and unique take on the traditional automotive magazine. This enthusiasm gives me the encouragement I need to continue developing the concept.

In the last day or so, as it seemed likely we wouldn't hit our target, I received a lot of personal messages asking about what's next. I'm happy to say everyone sincerely hoped I wouldn't give up on this. And I won't.

I plan to spend the next few days analyzing the campaign, taking stock of what worked well and what could have worked better. A second campaign to launch GranTurismo will likely emerge in the near future on Kickstarter, and we hope we'll have your support once again. Your feedback is welcome and encouraged. Feel free to contact me at Bryan.Joslin@GranTurismoMagazine.com with your comments, questions and suggestions.

Thanks again for your support.

Last Day, Big Push

We're on the final stretch of the campaign, and could still use all the help we can get. It's a big reach, but stranger things have happened. I still have faith that this can happen. The project is live until 9:00 PM Eastern/6:00 PM Pacific today. Let's see what we can do.

And once again, to those who have already pledged, thank you so much for your support.
