Designers from Porsche AG recently joined forces with Lucasfilm Ltd. to develop a new fantasy starship that merges the two brands. This fantasy starship is named Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter and will debut as a 5 foot model at the December film premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in Los Angeles.
“The design of the spaceship is harmoniously integrated into the Star Wars film world while at the same time demonstrating clear analogies with the characteristic Porsche styling and proportions,” says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche at Porsche AG. “The basic shape of the cabin, which tapers towards the rear, and a highly distinctive topography from the cockpit flyline to the turbines establish visual parallels with the iconic design of the 911 and the Taycan. The very compact layout conveys dynamism and agility, lending emphasis to the Porsche design features mentioned.”
