It’s called the Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter and there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is this is obviously a marketing stunt to promote the upcoming Hollywood film ‘Star Wars: the Rise of Skywalker’, and this means it won’t actually go to space (duh), but the good news is a detailed model of the starship, measuring 5 feet (1.5 mt) in length is going to be showcased at the film in Los Angeles next week along with the all-new Taycan.
According to Porsche chief designer Michael Mauer, the S-91X features several elements of Porsche design language, including the basic shape of the cabin, the front “air curtains” (air inlets) that go together with the headlights, the four-point running light and even the rear grid with the integrated brake light takes its inspiration from the current gen 911.
Doug Chiang, Vice President and Executive Creative Director at Lucasfilm, said that this project was “creatively challenging and inspiring” because while legal requirements impose certain restrictions with production vehicles, this was just a styling exercise for a film and that means designers had a rare chance to do whatever they wanted to do.
