Porsche designed a Star Wars spaceship with Disney

Porsche is known to the Gear Head community as a car manufacture that designs and makes fast Sports cars, but shockingly Porsche has teamed up with Disney to create a Porsche based spaceship for the Star Wars Universe. I don't know about you, but that is pretty awesome.

In 2019 Porsche and Lucasfilm which is known as Disney announced that they were working on a new spaceship design for the Star Wars universe. This is new spaceship will soon be given the name "The Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter". The new design is a mixture of all Porsche designs throughout the history of Porshe's life, which includes the 911, 917, 962 and the Taycan.

"The Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter" made it to the sets of several Star Wars series.

The design of the new The Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter wasn't an easy concept. It took seven designers from Porsche and Lucasfilm to collaborate on a new design for a new Star Wars film. The ship had to be completed in two months tops and without a sweat the team accomplished it. The Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter would finally make its way to the sets of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December 2019.

The Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter was also on the first episode of the 2022 TV series called the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" which was a limited series by Star Wars. If you watched this series you would know it was Princess Leia Organa that seen one taking off and leave the city of Aldera, which is on planet Alderaan while she was out exploring.

In the series you can hear her say "Ooh. A Tri-Wing. That's a new one."

The design team from both Porsche and Lucasfilms designed the Tri-Wing to feature the taste of Porsche cars. Thus, this means that the Tri-Wing will feature many Porshe design elements, such as the sloping roofline, a very strong bonnet topography, good handling, awesome width-to-height ratio, a fabulous unique Porsche styled body and a sleek design like Porsche's are meant to be.

As mentioned above, The Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter also highlights features from the Porsche 962, 917 and 911.

You can see the Tri-Wing canopy that is spotted towards the rear of the ship that resembles that of a Porsche 962 Tri-Wing.

If you look at the front of the Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter, you will see that the front windshield resembles that of that a Porsche 917.

If you view the front of the ship as if it was coming towards you, you will see that the Tri-Wing S-91X Pegasus Starfighter shares the eight-light concept of which is on a Porsche Taycan.

When watching the video released by Porshe, you will see that the Tri-Wing spaceship has many elements and features that come from the Porshe 917 and Porshe 962 in the canopy of the ship. Everything from the eight-lights from the front of the Porshe Taycan to the cool horizontal and vertical light blades from the Porshe 992 and 911 are highlighted on the back of the ship.
