Porsche reveals space-ship designed with help from Lucasfilm
Porshe and Lucasfilm have revealed the final design of its first starship.
The partnership was first announced back in October when Porsche said it was working with the company behind the Star Wars saga to create an intergalactic ship to celebrate The Rise of Skywalker.
The team unveiled the new design earlier this week. The design took two months to finalise, and the vehicle is expected to be five foot long once built.
While the design is unmistakably from the Star Wars Universe, the “highly distinctive topography from the cockpit flyline to the turbines establish visual parallels with the iconic design of the 911 and the Taycan," according to Vice President Style Porsche at Porsche AG Michael Mauer.

Vice President and Executive Director at Lucasfilm Doug Chiang agreed with Mauer, "It is thrilling to infuse Star Wars with Porsche styling to create an iconic new spaceship that could exist both on Earth or in the cinematic universe."
Besides Porsche design components – like the daytime running of headlights – are other Star Wars elements, including laser guns and missiles.
The Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighters will be presented at the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker later this month in Los Angeles.
