Porsche and Lucasfilm jointly design a fantasy starship
Designers at Porsche and Lucasfilm are collaborating on a fantasy starship design that will be presented at the world premiere of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker".
The sports car manufacturer and the US production company, which is famous for its Star Wars films, teamed up specifically to create the starship in support of the upcoming Star Wars film, the final episode of the Skywalker saga.
«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» says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style at Porsche.
The design team will meet regularly in Stuttgart and San Francisco, California, over the coming weeks to design the spacecraft and create a corresponding model.
In addition to the model’s public unveiling at the "Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker" premiere in December, Porsche will also be showcasing their first all-electric car – the Taycan – at the event. Deliveries to the US will start at the end of the year. In Europe, the Taycan will be handed over to customers from the beginning of 2020.
