My Summer Car is a car mechanic simulator developed and published by Amistech Games. Although driving is a prominent activity within the game, is it far from the only thing you will have to do.
For example, you do not even start the game with a working car; you will have to assemble one. With more than a hundred different parts in the game, this is no easy task – just like in real life. Once finished, you will be able to use your car to participate in rallies, or simply to drive around for fun.
But the mechanical concerns don’t end once the car is assembled; it will need maintenance and, occasionally, even repair. And if you have some in-game money to spare, you will also be able to improve it by purchasing and installing various aftermarket components. As such, you will be able to customize the car and make it truly yours.
My Summer Car is officially available only on Microsoft Windows. But there are several tricks that can be used to play My Summer Car on Mac as well. To learn more about them, read the article below.

Play My Summer Car on Mac with Parallels
One easy way to play My Summer Car on Mac is by using a program called Parallels Desktop. This program is capable of creating and running virtual machines that run Windows and support hardware acceleration. In simpler terms, Parallels Desktop allows you to install Windows 10 on Mac with just a couple of clicks and switch between MacOS and Windows instantly. So you will be able to run Windows, install Steam (or Epic Games Store, or any other launcher for that matter), and enjoy the My Summer Car game on Mac just like on a regular PC.
Generally speaking, you will need an iMac Pro or a Mac Pro to run demanding games. Some MacBook Pro and iMac models are also suitable; they must have an Intel processor, a discrete graphics card and at least 16 GB of RAM. If your Mac has an Apple Silicon chip (such as M1 or M2), you may experience issues playing modern games.
However, if the game you’re trying to run is old, or simply doesn’t demand much from computer hardware, then you will likely be able to run it on any Mac computer, including MacBook Air.
Please note that not all games are supported by Parallels. Several conditions must be met for the game to be playable.
Your Mac must exceed minimum system requirements for the game. Playing a game on Windows running through Parallels places additional strain on your Mac, so meeting them is not enough.
Games that require DirectX 12 are currently not supported by Parallels.
AppsOnMac recommends using Parallels’ free trial feature to determine whether you can run the game or not if you’re uncertain.
Play My Summer Car on Mac with Cloud Gaming services
If you have an old Mac or it cannot satisfy the My Summer Car game system requirements, there is an easy solution. Cloud gaming services will be happy to provide you with sufficient computing power – though not for free, of course. All you need is a browser or a small client program and a good internet connection starting from 15 MBit/s. There are several great platforms that provide these services, among the best are Boosteroid, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and NVidia GeForce NOW.
As Boosteroid has My Summer Car in its game library, it is an excellent choice for these seeking to try the game out.
Play My Summer Car on Mac with BootCamp
Note: Mac computers with new Apple Silicon (M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max) currently do not support BootCamp. In this case, please, use the options above to run My Summer Car on Mac
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all the system requirements above, you can play My Summer Car on Mac by installing Windows. You need to set up a dual boot of Windows and Mac via BootCamp. This is an application that allows users to choose the system to work in on startup, however, you won’t be able to switch between systems like in Parallels. You will need to reboot your machine every time you want to switch from Mac to Windows and vice versa. Remember that Mac is just a computer, in the end. And while newer Macs have their own special Apple Silicon chips that cannot run Windows, older Macs are very much similar to computers that run Windows, they have Intel processors, compatible RAM, disks, and other components. So you can install Windows on an older Mac by allocating no less than 64 GB of disk space (to be able to run Windows and a couple of games) and following these steps:
For OS X El Capitan 10.11 and older
For MacOS versions prior to OS X El Capitan 10.11 you will need to create a bootable Windows USB.
- Download this Windows ISO file.
- Open Boot Camp Assistant (Go to Applications > Utilities).
- Define the Windows partition size and choose the Windows ISO file you’ve downloaded.
- Format the Windows partition and go through all Windows installation steps.
- When Windows boots for the first time follow on-screen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers)
