Even if your real-life car budget has you googling “How much is a used Nissan Altima?” you can still look forward to racking up hours of fun by driving some pretty impressive cars in the digital world. Thanks to the upcoming release of the long-awaited video game Cyberpunk 2077, which is scheduled to drop November 19, you can curate your very own customized collection of some of the finest vehicles on earth, albeit in their pixellated format.

Gamers and car enthusiasts alike are eagerly anticipating the release of the game, which will allow them to store all the vehicles they own in their personal garage. Want to drive a particular car or motorcycle? Simply summon the one of your choice and it will come to you, while the rest of your collection stays safely tucked away in the garage of your Cyberpunk 2077 apartment.

Pretty cool, right?

The Vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077

But what amazing vehicles can we expect to see in Cyberpunk 2077? That has been the question on everyone’s mind since the title was first announced. We were able to confirm that the following cars will be available to own, customize, and drive in the upcoming game. You only have to wait until November to get behind the wheel of one of these beauties.

Quadra V-Tech

Modeled after an exotic sports car (think Lamborghini Countach), this is the vehicle we see main character V driving in most of the Cyberpunk 2077 concept art that has been released. While neither the make nor model actually exist in real life (with the exception of some K-car models that have been engineered by superfans of the game), we can see how the V-Tech would be an absolute dream to drive!

Porsche 911

This car is just right if you’re going for a classic look, as it has a classic 1977 appearance. This car belongs to the character Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves. In the lore, Johnny also customized the colors to his backstory. The Red stripe because it fit the color scheme of a band he was in called Samurai that unfortunately disbanded in 2008. He chose the dark green because of his time serving in the military, and silver because of his last name, Silverhand. I think that we can all agree that driving this souped-up Porsche would feel outstanding.

1970 AMC Javelin

American Motors Corporation, the auto manufacturer that also brought us the Gremlin and the Pacer, offered up the Javelin as their entry into the “pony car” market that had been created by the Ford Mustang. Winner of the Trans-Am race series in 1971, 1972, and 1976, the Javelin was the first pony car to be used in America as a standard vehicle for highway patrol. Thanks to Cyberpunk 2077, the Javelin is making a splashy comeback and is featured in bright yellow in some of the promotional gameplay we’ve seen so far.

Chevalier Armored SUV

Not every Cyberpunk 2077 vehicle is exotic or sporty, and the rugged Chevalier SUV proves this beyond a doubt! An armored SUV that is almost tank-like in its capabilities, the Chevalier appears in a gameplay trailer as the vehicle driven by Militech agents. We’re expecting the Chevalier to come in quite handy as a getaway vehicle, as well as during missions.

1976 Cadillac Eldorado

The definitive car of the 70s, the Cadillac Eldorado has been beloved for decades. As Cadillac’s top-of-the-line luxury car offering up until 2002, the Eldorado had been in production since 1952, when it was known as the Fleetwood Eldorado. Brought back to the pop culture sphere by hip-hop artists in the 90s and 2000s, the Eldorado is a classic that has never truly left it, and now it’s getting the Cyberpunk 2077 treatment.

Pontiac Fiero

Ah, the Pontiac Fiero…it’s impossible to think of the 80s without reminiscing about this car. While the jury’s still out on whether the Fiero is a classic car or a chapter best left forgotten (it did, after all, live up to its name with a reputation for spontaneously catching on fire!) we can all agree that this mid-engine two-seater looks pretty rad on the road. 

2020 Chevrolet Silverado

Prefer a little pick-up truck action in your garage? Cyberpunk 2077 won’t let you down! Just as in real life, we can expect the 2020 Chevy Silverado to be an excellent vehicle for towing and hauling in the game, and you never know when that will come in handy! This light-duty truck can be as powerful as it is practical, and always is a good vehicle to have in your garage, digital or otherwise.

Nissan Altima

We don’t know for sure yet, but the Nissan Altima might be inserted into Cyberpunk 2077 as well. Since I have one, I’m excited to see how that goes. If you want to get a feel for how amazing that will be, try typing this into your browser: How much is a used Nissan Altima? 

Whether you’re a serious gamer or a rabid car enthusiast, or perhaps just a casual fan of both, the odds are good that you’re going to love Cyberpunk 2077! Driving games are an amazing way to detach from reality and drive your dream vehicles in fantastic, reality-defying situations, either on your own or online with friends.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be available November 19 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC platforms, is slated to hit Stadia by the end of 2020, and is expected to be released for the all-new Xbox Series X/S and PS5 in 2021.
