Meet the sports car of Star Wars spaceships.
Just ahead of the Rise of Skywalker premiere, Porsche held an event that featured a scale model of its new Tri-wing.
This tie-up between the German automaker and Lucasfilm has resulted in a spacecraft likely to see screen time in future Star Wars features.
Here's Klaus Zellmer, CEO of Porsche North America.
Most of the visual Porsche ties are subtle or abstract. Large engines close to the cockpit, low intake scoops, that kind of thing.
Porsche and Lucasfilm's design teams found that their development processes had quite a bit in common.
It's yet to be announced which Star Wars character will fly the Tri-wing.
Doug Chiang, vice president and executive creative director of Lucasfilm, envisions some sort of rogue pilot or mechanic.
Will there be future Porsche/Lucasfilm tie-ups? Only time will tell.
