The 2003 sequel, “Bad Boys II,” also featured a Porsche, while the 2020 film “Bad Boys for Life” showcased a Gentian Blue 992-generation 911 Carrera 4S, according to Porsche’s official website.

Under its sleek hood, the Porsche 911 Turbo S boasts a powerful 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine, delivering 641 horsepower at 6,750 rpm and a robust 590 lb-ft of torque from 2,500 to 4,000 rpm, according to Carwale.

This impressive domestic performance was further boosted by an additional $48.6 million from international markets, resulting in the film’s worldwide opening total of $104.6 million.

Although “Bad Boys: Ride or Die” had a solid start, it did not surpass the opening weekend record set by its predecessor, “Bad Boys for Life,” which debuted with $62 million in 2020. Nevertheless, the $56 million domestic earnings are a promising start, especially considering the current box office climate.
