How is it that a video game trailer can garner so much attention, even for those people who wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between an Xbox 360 and a microwave oven?

Well, if you’re a certifiable gearhead with no interest whatsoever in video games, the answer lies within the trailer itself. A few fleeting snapshots of what is arguably one of the most hotly-anticipated cars of the year: the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S.

For some, the trailer itself has taken a backseat to the shots of the still-to-be-revealed Porsche sports car, which pretty much tells you just how big of a deal this machine is. Heck, we ran a separate post about the trailer and we’re doing another one just because the 911 Carrera S is in it.

The game itself lends certain promise to some pretty action-packed game play, one that involves a cool storyline of racing for your life from San Francisco to New York. But the real prize of this 98-second video are the few times we see the next-generation 911 Carrera S. If you’re not too careful with your eyes, you might even miss it. But if you pay attention, you’ll notice a few elements of the Carrera S that are worth taking notes on, including shots of the 911’s new headlight set-up and what appears to be vents on the rear of the car. The rest of the sneak peaks involve the 911 Carrera S in racing action so that in itself is a monumental task even for the most eagle-eyed viewer.

The good thing about it is that we won’t have to wait too long to see the car in all its glory because it’s set to be revealed at the 2011 IAAs. But if you’re the type with limited amounts of patience, then we suggest you that you watch this video over and over again to get your 2012 911 Carrera S fix.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I really can’t wait for the next installation of the Need for Speed! I love on how they easily update their previous game! I think this would be best to be play in the steering.
