Porsche has partnered with Star Wars to create a fantasy space ship called the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter to celebrate the latest movie in the George Lucas franchise.

The 5ft model, which took two months to make, will be presented next month at the Los Angeles premiere of & # 39; Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker & # 39 ;.

The designers say it is a fusion of Porsche and Star Wars DNA, with the curvature of the cockpit inspired by the 911 and Taycan car models.

The spacecraft is equipped with air inlets and lights derived from the Taycan design, while the slats and lights were pulled from the rear from the current 911.

Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche at Porsche AG said: & # 39; The basic shape of the cabin, tapered to the rear, and a very distinctive topography from the cockpit flyline to the turbines form visual parallels with the iconic design of the 911 and the Taycan. The very compact layout conveys dynamism and agility and emphasizes the aforementioned Porsche design features. & # 39;

The front is reminiscent of the so-called "air curtains" (air intakes) that go together with the headlights to create a single formal entity in the Taycan. In addition to the four-point daytime running light typical of Porsche, the so-called "blasters" - long gun barrels at the front - are at the tip

Porsche design criteria have also been applied in the interior: the instruments in the cockpit are clearly aligned with the driver's axis, while the low seating position is reminiscent of the sporty ergonomics in the Porsche 918 Spyder

The Porsche design is also printed on the interior, with a low, sporty seating position reminiscent of the 918 Spyder.

And the overall design is based on Porsche's ethos for a purposeful appearance, with all exterior elements having a clear function and purely visual characteristics.

For example, the classic four-point daytime running light of the German car – better known as & # 39; blasters & # 39; – is mounted on either side of the long gun barrels at the ends of the spacecraft.

For the team of Star Wars designers it was a new challenge because they are used to making a two-dimensional design that appears on a cinema screen for a short flicker.

& # 39; The spaceship design is harmoniously integrated into the Star Wars movie world and at the same time shows clear analogies with the characteristic Porsche style and proportions & # 39 ;, says Michael Mauer, Porsche AG Vice President Style Style.

& # 39; This collaboration is a great opportunity to merge the design aesthetics of Porsche and Star Wars. I found it creatively challenging and extremely inspiring & # 39 ;, says Doug Chiang, Vice President and Executive Creative Director for Lucasfilm. & # 39; It's exciting to give Star Wars a Porsche style to create an iconic new spaceship that could exist on Earth and in the movie universe & # 39;

Kjell Gruner, head of marketing at Porsche, added: & # 39; Our collaborative project with Star Wars fits perfectly with the launch of the Taycan. The design teams have brought together the different worlds of Porsche and Star Wars to make a very special gift for the fans of the two brands. & # 39;
