The worlds of luxury auto and movie magic come together for a cool concept surrounding the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film. Porsche and Lucasfilm collaborated together for over two months to execute a fantasy starship dubbed the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter. The sleek spacecraft will also make its debut as a model measuring at 5-feet in length for the film’s premiere in Los Angeles.

As for details of the concept, the look blends signature traits from Porsche’s design aesthetics, specifically the Taycan which also recently released just this September. “Our collaborative project with Star Wars goes perfectly with the launch of the Taycan. The design teams have brought the differing worlds of Porsche and Star Wars together to make a very special gift for the fans of the two brands,” states Kjell Gruner, Head of Marketing at Porsche. Furthermore, the ship had to be recognizable right away since in the Star Wars films, starships appear very quickly as they fly through the screen. The Pegasus Fighter had to be something that makes a lasting impression.

“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,” Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche at Porsche AG emphasizes. “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.”
