Porsche rides into the dark future of Cyberpunk 2077
CD PROJEKT RED has announced today that the studio has recreated the classic Porsche 911 Turbo to be featured in its upcoming video game, Cyberpunk 2077 .
First teased in the latest episode of the online show Night City Wire, the Cyberpunk 2077 Porsche 911 Turbo, based on the model range first launched back in 1974, will be included in the game as a unique, fully-drivable vehicle. Its presence is tied to one of the game’s main characters — rebel rockerboy Johnny Silverhand, played and portrayed by Keanu Reeves.
The automotive icon retains its classic 1977 look, painstakingly recreated and adapted by CD Projekt Red concept and vehicle artists using sketches, photographs, and photogrammetry.
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.
In addition to the 911 Turbo appearing in the game, a real-life and fully operational rendition of its Johnny Silverhand variant has been constructed.
