But the ultimate Porsche 911 took us by surprise, as the German automaker decided to unveil the supercar at the 2017 Xbox E3.

It’s not the first time Porsche did something similar – the Cayman GT4 was unveiled in Real Racing 3 – but this time around we’re talking about the actual car, which rolled onto the stage.

I know the video is quite long, so just go to the 46-minute mark to see the introduction and the car.
