Cyberpunk 2077's Custom Porsche Keanu Reeves
The latest Cyberpunk 2077 game is set in abysmal conditions, a grim dystopian future ― but the featured cars are as dope as ever.
One car in particular stands apart as the only car that exists IRL: a classic 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera ― coincidentally released exactly a century before the game's time period. Obviously, it's as cool as its owner: Keanu Reeves' character, Johnny Silverhand. Outfitted with unreal futuristic enhancements, the wheels are meant to represent aspects of the character like his veteran status, membership to a band called Samurai, and power struggle against mega corporations.
The interior authentically reflects the classic 911, with the addition of some technological advancements, and hyperrealist game graphics capture the sensorial experience of the car's premium leather upholstery. That's basically the standard for all of the game's wheels, which include dope bikes covered in quilted leather ― even the fictional models look as though you could reach into the screen and feel the smooth material for yourself, same with the leather apparel pieces that characters wear.
The car's color scheme uses a military green leather interior to represent the character's army service, a red stripe that symbolizes the Samurai brand, and obviously silver, to capture Johnny's signature robotic hand. A bare metal body completed with a noticeable band logo on the rear perfectly exudes the character's persona.
But the fictional rides don't stop there. Try to pick a favorite from this list:
Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech
Cyberpunk 2077's hero's car sports Testarossa-style side strakes on a sleek, aerodynamic build. Packing a V8 engine that's revolutionized real-life models from major manufacturers like Lamborghini and Ferrari, it's turbocharged for 740 horsepower to achieve unreal speed.
One of the many cars manufactured by Chevillon in the game, this one is a big favorite in the early game and must be on your list of first purchases for only 17,000 Eurodollars.
If you wanna swap your car for a bike, this one is based on the nonfictional Method 143 model from the Californian manufacturer Arch. The ultra-low volume brand seems like a random feature until you find out Keanu Reeves is a co-founder IRL. The high point here is the clear attention to the details of the high-def leather.
For other two wheels rides, there's also character Jackie's customized version of the ARCH he bought after a "muy pequeñito" loan. Mixing a black frame with red quilted leather, this machine can be obtained by playing the game.
