Star Wars and Porsche Team Up to Unveil New Star-Ship for 'The Rise of Skywalker' Premiere

Star Wars and Porsche Team Up to Unveil New Star-Ship for ‘The Rise of Skywalker‘ Premiere. “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.”

“Developing a spacecraft with clear Porsche design DNA is exiting and challenging. 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 Porsche at Porsche AG.

“The worldwide appeal of the Star Wars and Porsche brands is shaped decisively by their iconic designs,” says Doug Chiang, Vice President and Executive Creative Director of Lucasfilm, “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 is responsible for overseeing all designs for the Star Wars franchise and has been working closely with Porsche to bring to life a model that is equally Porsche and Star Wars in a cohesive design.

Porsche also shared, “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, which launched in early September. 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.”
