With the completion of the third Star Wars saga trilogy less than a week from its theatrical debut, there are few fans, and companies, who can't remain indifferent to the "Star Wars fever." After Samsung released a special edition of the Galaxy Note 10+ and even Facebook Messenger surrendered to the Force, it was Porsche's turn to launch its film-inspired proposal.
In October this year, the German automaker announced that it had teamed up with Lucasfilm to create a promotional spacecraft. The collaboration resulted in the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter, a starfighter inspired from the Star Wars universe. Although not appearing in the latest film, the 1.5 meter long model will be presented at the official premiere of the Rise of Skywalker on December 16 in Los Angeles.
According to Michael Mauer, Porsche Design Vice President, quoted in a company statement, the spacefighter's look takes inspiration from the style of cars like the Porsche 911 and Taycan, combining them with elements of the spaceships that marked the universe. from Star Wars. Unlike the production of a car for sale to the public, which has to be governed by the imposed rules, in the creation of an aircraft, designers were free to let their imagination run wild.
For now, it is still unclear what will happen to the Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus Starfighter after its exposure at the Rise of Skywalker debut. Only time will tell if the space fighter can be bought by any movie-saga enthusiast whose wallet has enough padding.
