The popular Porsche Valkyrie, also known as the Valk, is a favorite of many traders, and of Jack Folstam, Night Master of the Bounty Hunters. It is often referred to as "the last of the great gas-guzzlers" due to its dependency on chemical rockets, rather than ion drive, for sublight propulsion. The Rebel Valkyrie replaces the chemical rockets with ion drives, giving it a slight speed and manoeuvrability advantage over the standard ship. The Pirate Upgrade has four engines, compared to the stock ships three, also giving it a slight speed and manoeuvrability advantage over the standard ship.
The Valkyrie has inspired several variants:
- Class I: The standard shipyard model shown here.
- Class II: More powerful engines; slightly thicker armor; armed with 2 Hail Chainguns, 2 Light Cannons, and a Raven Rocket Pod.
- Class III: Still more powerful engines; thicker armor, better shields; armed with 2 Medium Blasters, 3 Light Blasters, 4 Raven Rocket Pods, a Quad Light Blaster Turret, and a Hellhound Missile Launcher.

There are also two used versions of the craft available at various shipyards. One can be bought for just 200,000 credits, but has been abused and uncared for resulting in noticeable decreases in speed, manoeuvrability, armour, and shielding so that the saving is hardly worth it. The other secondhand version is in as good a condition as the day it rolled of the production line, and due to the careful upgrades that its captain spent his money on, the ships performance, armour and weaponry is increased. However, so is the price, almost twice that of a new class B Valk.
