Porsche and Star Wars team up to create a starshipOctober 23, 2019
Designers Porsche and Lucasfilm are collaborating on the development of a starship to advance the premiere of Star Wars: The Skywalker Rise, which takes place on December 20. Recall that the start of Taycan deliveries to the United States will begin at the end of the year, in time for the film’s debut.
The process of designing a starship and a gallery of various sketches that claim to be selected can be viewed on a special website called the Union of Designers. It was previously reported that Porsche and Lucasfilm will collaborate for the new film Star Wars: Skywalker Rise. And recently the first details of the deal have appeared. According to representatives of the German brand, the creators of the sports electric sedan and the Star Wars franchise meet and jointly develop a spaceship that “will play a future role in the Star Wars galaxy.”
Lucasfilm creative director Doug Chiang said the design will be a model featuring elements of the star ships X-wing, Y-wing and U-wing from Star Wars films combined with Taycan design elements. The designers were given specific instructions: there should be two front entrances, a large rear cargo door and a place for two pilots and a maximum of five crew members. In addition, the spaceship must also have a minimum of two and a maximum of four engines.
The spacecraft will be on display at the premiere of Star Wars: Skywalker Rise in December, along with its own Porsche-Taycan 2020 spacecraft. By the way, the first syllable Taycan is pronounced in the same way as “TIE” in the TIE fighter, which is a single-seat spaceship that largely signals the impending death of the Imperial fleet. In fact, this is the same as the electric sports sedan.
