Porsche AG and Lucasfilm Ltd. have finally unveiled the product of their collaboration. Introducing the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter, a new starship for the Star Wars universe. The two companies worked in their studios located in San Francisco and Weissach to develop the new starship and came together to finish the design.

The Tri-Wing looks like it would fit in very naturally in the Star Wars universe, but it also has a few Porsche touches. In the front are air inlets similar to what you’d find on a Porsche automobile. At the back are taillights that were inspired by the current 911 generation.

“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.”
