Porsche AG and Lucasfilm Ltd. designers have partnered to create a Star Wars starship that brings together the design DNA of the two brands. It’s called the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter and is set to be presented as a detailed model measuring 5-feet in length at the December film premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in Los Angeles.

On the big screen, the starship is only seen in two dimensions, while classic series-production vehicles appear physically in three dimensions. Plus, starships normally only appear dynamically in the film and are only visible for a brief moment – so this design had to create an impression and be recognizable within a matter of seconds.
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,” said Kjell Gruner, Head of Marketing at Porsche.
