“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.

“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.”

That’s Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche at Porsche AG.

Yes Porsche designers teamed up with designers from Lucasfilm and over a two-month period, working in both Weissach and San Francisco, created the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter.

Sure, Tesla has the Cybertruck.

But Porsche has the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter.
