Porsche recreates the one real-life car from the ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ video game

A short while ago, we covered an awesome Ford Mustang resto-mod commissioned by the creators of the upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077, modified to vaguely resemble one of the game’s star cars.
Now, Porsche itself is getting in on the action with a replica of its own — a real-life version of the protagonist Johnny Silverhand’s 911 Turbo.
While most of the vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077 aren’t from real manufacturers, but rather creations of the video games designers, there is one car that is unmistakably genuine, and that’s a Porsche 911 Turbo driven by the main character, played by Keanu Reeves.
Thanks to a partnership between Projekt Red and Porsche, the vehicle in-game is a perfect replica of the real thing, and as such, Porsche thought it apt to wrap a real 1977 911 Turbo so it looked it just like the car in the game.
The Porsche in the game isn’t as wild as a lot of the other cars, but what it lacks in excitement, it gains in detail. Every last inch of the vehicle has been recreated perfectly, even the engine bay. There are a few changes to bring the ostensibly 100-year-old car into the future though, including a bio-fuel conversion; and a special gearbox to allow self-driving.
Unfortunately, unlike that awesome Mustang, you can’t have this one. You can go and look at it though, since Porsche will have the vehicle – that’s the virtual replica top of page, and the real-life copy just above this paragraph – on display outside of its museum in Stuttgart until October 22.
