In order to put real cars in video games, game studios need to buy licenses from automobile manufacturers. Remember that Cayman shooting brake/breadvan mule recently spotted on the streets of Europe and supposed by many commenters to be a fake? It's been captured in Forza Motorsport 3.

While this doesn't mean we'll be seeing such a conveyance on the roads any time soon, or that it is in fact a Porsche product and not a tuner special, gamemakers Turn 10 would need to have spoken to Porsche (or whomever is responsible) about including a car that no one even know about a few weeks ago. If this is all real then, after the unlikely Panamera, could the next item on Porsche's list really be a mid-engined mini wagon? Hat tip to Mike.

      Evora competitor?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Zamafir - The Cayman doesn't seat 2+2 like the Evora does. Not a competitor

      After Cayenne, Panamera and this(if it ever become reality).
      I don't think my heart is strong enough for any prorsh concept or production model.
      & autoblog should post a warning before posting this kind of stuff. Something like danger: might cause you to lose your appetite. And eyesight

      It's like a sexed up C30.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's actually the next-generation C30 that the Chinese auto manufacturer of the week who thinks they're going to buy Volvo has designed, in advance.

      That is so horrendously ugly that the mere thought of it rots the mind.

      That is so insanely ugly that the mere sight of it makes one desire the sight of a Panamera.

      That is so MF that I coulda sworn I shat it out last night.

      Or they could take a regular Porsche build an attachment for the back of it that would work for the sensors to get it to work in the game.

      I still contend that the original 'real-life' shot is from the game too...

        I'm having trouble understanding your meaning?
        • 6 Years Ago
        You know, they fashion a truss to it, that would give the computer image generator an outline/silhouette of the vehicle, then the rest is filled in by a graphics designer. I think the first picture was a low resolution on purpose. I have seen crisper lines, with better shadows/reflections in the video game stills. I say both images are from the game.

        The truth is there is no car....

      Guess Porsche thought the world needed another AMC Pacer.

      Maybe I'm stupid, but what the hell is a "Shooting Brake"???
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm guessing this is just a canopy covering the actual shape of the cars hatch/backlight/top/profile

      of course its possible this is a one off concept like the audi shooting break, but i wouldn't expect anything like this in production.

      That looks awful.
