2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Teased in NFS The Run Trailer

Electronic Arts just teased its new limited edition driving game called “Need for Speed: The Run”. We have our controllers ready and our right pointer fingers are itching, but before the game hits the stores, we have to talk about something that has to do with actual cars... you know, the ones made of metal and plastic.

The new Need for Speed game will feature three exclusive cars: the hottest Camaro ever, the brand new V12-powered Lamborghini and the upcoming 2012 Porsche 911 in Carrera S form. In order to create a bit of hype, EA has show a couple of angles, one of the back end’s vent and the other revealing the left headlight.

According to EA’s press release for "Need for Speed: The Run" game, it will arrive on the Xbox 360,
PlayStation 3 and PC starting November 15 in North America and November 19 in Europe. This means that we will have already gotten to see the Carrera in Frankfurt by that time.

The Carrera S, which we are looking at, is expected to arrive on the market next year, with 400 horsepower from its 3.8-liter flat-six, while the base Carrera will share its 350 horsepower 3.4-liter with the next Boxster S. Launch Control will be available on both the 7-speed manual and 7-speed PDK, while fuel efficiency will be improved by 12 to 15 percent on the European test cycle.

However, the game seems really interesting - a sort of mix between a liquor run and the Gumball 3000. There’s a lot of interesting cars present in the trailer, including the Aventador, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the BMW 1-Series and the Dodge Challenger. We’d say this is the lineup that we should have seen in the latest Transformers movie, not the almost all-GM.
