Whether the original Ford Taurus, in all of its car-of-tomorrow glory, or the Pontiac-needling 6000 SUX stuck in your mind, RoboCop enjoys a place on the car guy’s movie list. But the RoboCop reboot, in theaters now, is less a car movie than the original and there is, we’re sorry to report, no 6000 SUX.
Why? Well, RoboCop Production Designer and vehicle designer, Martin Whist, told Motor Trend. “The current RoboCop isn’t has far in the future as the original film was. So the cars need to be designed for the near future.”

If you look closely, you can pick out a number of other vehicles throughout the movie. OmniCorp also uses lightly modified Dodge Durangos as security vehicles and RoboCop is occasionally driven around in a modified Chevy Suburban. One of the bad guys drives a supercar, though only a portion of it is visible in the frame. It appears to be an Audi R8. Another rocks a first-gen Porsche Cayenne. Then there are the little Easter Eggs. “There’s a few that I got for background,” says Whist. “I got these Japanese cars and some European cars that just had a different look you don’t see in North America. A lot of them were just place-them-in-the-background cars.”
