Porsche and Lucasfilm Ltd., famous for the Star Wars films, are teaming up to create an all-new starship. Yes, this is real. The announcement of this collaboration comes before the December release of “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.”
“Developing a spacecraft with clear Porsche design DNA is exciting and challenging,” says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche at Porsche AG. “Even though they do not seem to share many elements at first glance, both worlds have a similar design philosophy. The close collaboration with the Star Wars design team inspires and fascinates us – I’m sure that both sides can draw major benefits from this exchange.”
Over the coming weeks, the design team is set to meet regularly ain both Stuttgart and San Francisco, California. These meetings will eventually result in the new starship that will be unveiled at the premiere of the film. Porsche will also be showcasing the new Taycan at the premiere as well.
