Are you ready for more sweet rides? Yeah, the first teaser for "Cars 3" was surprisingly dark, but Disney/Pixar wouldn't have cooked up three films if fans weren't hungry for the main ingredient: seriously cool cars. The folks over at Gearheads.org had some fun with those cars, showing how the "Cars" characters were shaped by their real-life counterparts.
Check out their cool graphics:
Lightning McQueen: based largely on a Chevy Corvette C6
Mater: 1951 International Harvester L-170
Sally Carrera: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera
Doc Hudson: 1951 Hudson Hornet
Luigi: 1959 Fiat 500
A few months back, Pixar boss John Lasseter teased what's ahead in "Cars 3," telling Entertainment Weekly, "Lightning McQueen, he's awesome. We've got some great new characters, some great racing in it. It's a very emotional story. It's a little bit more akin to 'Cars 1,' where you get into a deep emotion with him. It's really a special story. It's very emotional and his relationship with Doc Hudson, and his memory of Doc Hudson."
"Cars 3" is scheduled for release in theaters June 16, 2017.
