Behind the scenesEdit
- "The worldwide appeal of the Star Wars and Porsche brands is shaped decisively by their iconic designs. We are bringing together two worlds with this project: the exotic film design of a galaxy far, far away and the precision work that goes into developing emotive Porsche sports cars. This collaboration promises to produce an innovative design that will blend the best of both brands to create an exciting new starship worthy of Porsche and Star Wars."
- ―Doug Chiang
This starship is a collaboration between the car maker Porsche and Lucasfilm Ltd., and teamed up specifically to create this starship as part of the marketing and promotion for Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. Its design was revealed in a video published by the car maker, and will appear in a future Star Wars media. Lucasfilm Creative Director Doug Chiang instructed the Porsche team on the saga's design principles as part of the 6-week design period.
The Porsche and Lucasfilm design teams will meet regularly in Stuttgart and San Francisco for weeks to design the spacecraft and create a corresponding model. On December 13, 2019, the ship was revealed citing its inspirations as being the Porsche products 911, Taycan, and 918 Spyder.
