    Why the wings? The new electric Taycan is a jet fighter without them!

    Thought this was pretty cool too.

    Kessel run-wise, I hear the secret's in keeping the Parsecs to a minimum.

    In the 1980s, Porsche tried to extend its reach by selling its air cooled auto engines for use in the general aviation sector. Cessna, Mooney, and a few others tried the engines in some models in the mid 90s. The cowlings on those aircraft were well designed and gave the aircraft a sleek, fast appearance. The power to weight ratio was a bit of an issue and Cessna stopped making light aircraft in 1986 due to the cost of product liability insurance and the light aircraft slot of general aviation sector has generally decreased each decade since the 70s.

    I'd like to see Cessna use this styling in modern models.

    If an aircraft flew from space into an atmosphere of a planet, wings to generate lift and embed control surfaces would definitely be helpful. The space shuttle has wings for that reason (on a good day it flew back into the atmosphere and glided back down do earth in a controlled descent).

    Let's not worry TOO much about physical laws in Star Wars movies shall we? Lots of spaceships fly just fine without "wings," others have them, spaceships bank and maneuver in outer space as if they were WW1 biplanes, and so on. I'm pretty sure in one of the more recent movies, a sun's energy was drained (?) to power a big laser gun (?) which shot a beam of energy across the galaxy near-instantly, destroying a planet in a distant star system. I may have some details wrong, but - how many of our quaint little "laws of physics" would that actually break? Hard to say...

    George Lucas famously said that any space voyage in his movies always took exactly as long as the plot required.

    The OP looks more like a Tesla design than a Porsche.

    I will stick with the ones bound to earth by gravity and Michelins.
