While Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t emphasize vehicles as much as other open-world games like Grand Theft Auto, you are going to rely on the game’s array of cars, bikes, and trucks in order to get around Night City and the Badlands.

Like most other things in Cyberpunk 2077, though, the ins and outs of how vehicles work aren’t necessarily explained to the player. It’s not unusual to find yourself halfway through the game without any idea of how to acquire certain vehicles or what you are supposed to do with them.

With that in mind, here are a few answers to some of the most common questions regarding Cyberpunk 2077‘s vehicles.

Can You Steal Cars in Cyberpunk 2077?

You can steal most of the cars you see in Night City, but some of them are easier to take than others.

While clunkers and fairly average cars in Cyberpunk 2077 can be stolen at the push of a button, others require you to have the appropriate number of hacking or body attribute points. It’s generally not worth pursuing either of those builds just to steal more cars in the city, but if you’ve already chosen to focus on either of those attributes, then consider the extra grand theft auto opportunities to be a fringe benefit.

Just be aware that trying to steal cars in the city may result in a bystander reporting you to the police.

Can You Store Vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077?

You can store vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077, but at the moment, the only place to permanently park them is in the garage by V’s apartment.

You should also know that the only vehicles you can store in that garage are the ones that you acquired through missions or legally purchased. You’re currently not able to permanently store stolen vehicles.

It’s also worth noting that you can only “summon” one vehicle at a time. If you want to change the vehicle that comes when you trigger its AI tracking system, you’ll need to go to your garage and swap your currently selected vehicle.

Can I Buy Cars in Cyberpunk 2077?

Yes, you can buy cars in Cyberpunk 2077, but the process of acquiring them is a little strange.

There are no traditional car dealerships in Night City (at least none that have been found yet). Instead, opportunities to buy new cars are typically gated behind certain progression events. Completing specific missions will unlock the opportunity to buy a new car, as will earning enough Street Cred.

Basically, the best way to unlock cars is to keep driving around the city, keep completing side quests, and keep progressing through the main story. Eventually, opportunities to purchase new cars will be added to your side quest log.

Just know that unlocking the chance to purchase a new vehicle doesn’t necessarily unlock the vehicle itself. While it’s possible to earn free rides, you’ll still have to pay for many of the game’s vehicles. That’s potentially very bad news considering that some of the best cars in the game come equipped with the biggest price tags in Night City.

Can I Customize Cars in Cyberpunk 2077?

The very short answer to this question is “no.”

While CD Projekt Red was working on a car customization system, they revealed that this feature was abandoned at some point during development. It’s not entirely clear what the problem was, but it would be nice if car customization options were added to the game down the line along with the ability to tweak your character’s physical appearance once you’re past the initial character creation phase.

Can I Just Fast Travel in Cyberpunk 2077?

There is a fast travel option in Cyberpunk 2077, and it’s tied to Night City’s public transportation system: Night City Area Rapid Transit.

If you look at your map, you should see various NCART icons spread throughout the city. By visiting one of these NCART points, you should be able to jump from one public transportation hub to another. For now, though, there doesn’t seem to be any other way to fast travel from a specific point in the city to another specific point in the city.

Are There Motorcyles in Cyberpunk 2077?

While cars and trucks tend to dominate the streets of Night City, there appear to be at least five kinds of motorcycles you can acquire through theft, purchase, and unlocks.

Actually, one of the best ways to get a motorcycle early on is to just steal one from the Tyger Claws. It’s not a permanent solution, but the bike’s design is inspired by the motorcycle in Akira, so it’s got that working for it.

How Can I Unlock The Porsche in Cyberpunk 2077?

Yes, there is a Porsche in Cyberpunk 2077, and it turns out that it’s actually not that hard to unlock. You just need to follow these steps.

*Slight Side Mission Spoilers*

  1. Proceed through the main story until you unlock the “Chippin’ In” side mission.
  2. Meet Rogue.
  3. During the mission, put your weapons away and choose to spare Grayson.
  4. At the end of the mission, you should be rewarded with the Porsche 911.

How Do I Unlock Keanu Reeves’ Motorcycle in Cyberpunk 2077?

A recent Cyberpunk 2077 teaser revealed that a motorcycle made by a company that Keanu Reeves co-owns would be included in the game. While not every Cyberpunk 2077 feature made it to release, this is one promise that CD Projekt Red did keep.

How do you get it? There are currently three known ways to acquire one. The first requires you to raise your Street Cred to 40 and buy an Arche Nazare motorcycle from a fixer in Westbrook for a whopping 138,000 eddies. Ouch.

If that price tag is a bit too high, then you can earn an Arche Nazare for free by completing either the “Heroes” or “The Highwayman” side missions. Without getting into spoilers, the one you get through the “Heroes” side mission is a little cooler and has a personal story attached to it. It can also be acquired very early on.

What is The Full List of Available Cars and Vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077?

For the record, “available” is the keyword here, as there are some cars in the game (most notably, flying cars) which you will see around the city but seemingly can’t drive or pilot at this time.

Having said that, here’s the full list of drivable cars, trucks, and motorcycles that have been discovered so far:

Arch Nazare
Archer Quartz EC-T2 R660
Archer Hella EC-D I360
Brennan Apollo
Chevillon Thrax 388 Jefferson
Chevillon Emperor 620 Ragnar

There are a few variations to some of those vehicles (including a few special variations that can only be unlocked by making the right story choices), but that’s a rough overview of the game’s current drivable vehicle list.
