Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red and legendary automobile manufacturer Porsche have announced that the classic Porsche 911 Turbo sportscar, based on the model range that was first released back in 1974, will be one of the cars featured in the upcoming game. One variants of the vehicle in the game is driven by Johnny Silverhand, Rockerboy and former lead singer of the band Samurai, who is played and portrayed by Keanu Reeves.
“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 Pawe? Mielniczuk, Art Director of Characters, Weapons and Vehicles, CD PROJEKT RED.
