Cars 2 Porto Corsa Intro - Clip

Porto Corsa is a location that appeared in Cars 2. It is where the second out of three races in the World Grand Prix is held.

Cars 2

Porto Corsa is a typical Mediterranean coastal tourist town located in Italy. It hosts the second race of the World Grand Prix. This race's track passes through the streets of the town, which are partly paved.

Near the end of the race, a huge crash involving most of the racers (not Carla Veloso or Nigel Gearsley, they spun out previously) occured, which has Shu Todoroki hit by the pulse accelerator, and Miguel Camino tries to brake but fails. Then comes Max Schnell, who also tries to brake but fails, and they are all sent down like a slide. Raoul ÇaRoule and Rip Clutchgoneski come, and crash as well. Then Jeff Gorvette and Lewis Hamilton come and brake sucsessfully.

In front of the crash, Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli were racing towards the finish line. The race ended with Lightning winning and Francesco coming in second.

Near Porto Corsa is a small village named Carsoli.

  • Despite the fact that the other World Grand Prix races take place in real cities, Porto Corsa is a fictional place.
  • To create the look of Porto Corsa, the designers combined the racetrack of Monaco with the terrain of the Amalfi Coast.[1]
  • Porto Corsa was inspired by the cities of Genoa, Vernazza, Positano, Monte Carlo and Portofino.[2] 
    • The name is similar to Porto Cervo (Sardinia), another Italian city on the coast.
  • The casino in Porto Corsa is built on a rocky outcropping shaped like a 1948 Fiat 500 Topolino.[1]
  • The Porto Corsa Marina is shaped like a hubcap.[1]
  • At the craps table in the Porto Corsa casino, the game is played with fuzzy dice, much like the kind one might find hanging from a car’s rearview mirror.[1]
  • At the meeting of the Lemon families in the casino, the table around which they meet is decorated with piles of lemons, a clear allusion to their nickname of Lemons.
  • Exhaust pipe chimney
