Polestar looks set to take yet another revolutionary design step by blanking off the front windscreen of its forthcoming 9 electric car.

Having already blanked off the rear windscreen of the Polestar 4, insiders told TopGear.com the company was forging ahead with plans to remove the transparent glass up front – traditionally used to see the road ahead – and replace it with a more appealing design form.

The ground-breaking new aesthetic is an ambitious bid to attract not only new buyers to the brand, but also Force-sensitives.

The insider added that if a Force-sensitive can prove their powers to a salesperson – say, by lifting a Polestar 3 out of a muddy lake by means of telekinesis – they’d be offered an unlisted option that deletes every pane of transparent glass on the car. The insider called this special edition the ‘PoleStar Wars 9’.

“Big automotive will have you believe you need to see out of your car to get from A to B, but here at Polestar we challenge conventions. Remember, your eyes can deceive you; don’t trust them.

“We’re appealing to a new kind of premium luxury executive and Force-sensitive consumer who isn’t tied into traditional and tired motoring tropes like ‘transparent glass’. Remember, difficult to see, always in motion is the future.”

When pushed on how these new buyers might try to drive to their intended destinations successfully, the insider revealed: “Do or do not, there is no try”.

The new car is scheduled for a 2029 release and is described as sitting underneath the Polestar 8 but bigger in size than the Polestar 10 for reasons known only to The Force.
