CD Projekt Red has announced that the classic Porsche 911 Turbo will be making it’s way to Night City in Cyberpunk 2077, first teased in the latest episode of the online show Night City Wire. The model is based on the range first launched back in 1974, and will be included in the game as a fully-drivable vehicle.
The car itself has been expertly detailed on the classic 1977 look, recreated by concept and vehicle artists using sketches, photographs, and photogrammetry. The 1977 car has been adapted slightly to fit in with the world of 2077, as a lidar attached to the front, a set of sensors and elements to identify the vehicle from the air, and electronic mirrors with monitors inside the vehicle.
“Johnny’s a legend of the Cyberpunk universe. When thinking about what kind of car he’d be driving through the streets of Night City, we knew it would have to be one just as legendary as he is. Having Johnny’s story in mind, and being huge fans of Porsche ourselves, the answer could only be the classic 911 Turbo,” said Paweł Mielniczuk, Art Director of Characters, Weapons and Vehicles, CD PROJEKT RED.
Just having the 911 in the game isn’t enough though, as there is a real-life and fully operational rendition of motor has been created. The car will be available on display outside the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart from October 15th to October 22nd.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release November 19th, 2020, for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Stadia. The game will also be available on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles when those consoles land.
