Porsche is creating a starship with Lucasfilm Ltd in support of the latest and final episode in the Skywalker saga,“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” which comes out in December.

Porsche AG is collaborating with US Production house Lucasfilm Ltd to create a fantasy starship in conjunction with the release of the final film in the Skywalker saga, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” out later this year.

The German carmaker has said that the starship model will be unveiled at the “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” premiere in December this year.

“Developing a spacecraft with clear Porsche design DNA is exciting and challenging,” says Michael Mauer, Vice President of Style Porsche. “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.”

The German carmaker also said that the design team will meet regularly in Stuttgart and San Francisco, California, over the coming weeks to design the spacecraft and create a corresponding model.

Besides presenting the new starship model, Porsche will also be showcasing its first all-electric car , the Taycan, which was first revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show earlier this year. The car will be handed over to customers in Europe from the beginning of 2020.
