The game was successful enough to get itself ported to the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis (and pretty much everything else of the same generation as the Genesis), and spawned [[{{Sequelitis}} lots of sequels]]. They all follow the same formula, though several of them add an opponent to race against in addition to the clock and standard traffic.

* ArcadePerfectPort: Only two: the UsefulNotes/SEGASaturn version in the "SEGA Ages" line, and the version [[EmbeddedPrecursor included with]] the UsefulNotes/{{Xbox}} release of ''[=OutRun=] 2''. The Saturn release also includes rearranged music and the ability to bump up the framerate from 30 fps to 60, but these features are optional. Every port released prior to the Saturn wasn't powerful enough to perfect emulate the game, while every release afterwards modifies the car to look less like a Testarossa.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: The totally absurd ability to powerslide from ''[=OutRun=] 2'' onwards. It makes ''RidgeRacer'' and ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeedUnderground'' look like totally SeriousBusiness driving simulators.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Inasmuch as "canon" can get with a driving game. ''Battle [=OutRun=]'', ''[=OutRun Europa=]'', and ''[=OutRun 2019=]'' are excluded from the official 20th anniversary music collection, meaning they aren't considered proper installments in the series.



* MultipleEndings: Depending on the route you pick. Results can range from the driver ([[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments or the passenger]]) being given a trophy to the car just falling to bits.

** In ''[=OutRun=] 2'', you gain points for passing traffic cars, and even more for passing rivals, but hitting a car will reduce the bonus you get from passing it. ''[=OutRun=] 2'' also has Heart Attack mode, a special mode where your passenger gives you various missions (such as passing cars, passing through gates, and drifting along a path) and completing these missions rewards you with hearts and letter grades.
