This November, Porsche and Embraer announced one very special collaboration. The two iconic luxury brands are teaming up to create the world’s first matching jet and sports car, a cosmetic duet for those who can afford it!
“The Duet”, as they call it, is a limited edition pairing of one Embraer Phenom 300E and one Porsche 911 Turbo S. Mind you; only 10 matching “private jet-sports car” pairs will be made for 10 very lucky purchasers. If you are one of the top earners on the planet with a “collector’s urge” to match your belongings, and about USD 10.9 million in the back of your pocket, here is one great opportunity to treat yourself this season!
On the outside, the jet and car will share the same two-tone paintwork: gloss Platinum Silver Metallic and satin-gloss Jet Grey Metallic with trim strips in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. The car’s air intakes will be painted in Brilliant Chrome to match the leading edge nacelles of the jet. The car’s doorsill trims will feature the same “No Step” lettering on the aircraft’s wing.
On the inside, the sewing style of the jet’s seats will mimic that used on the car’s seats. The black and chalk colored leather seats in each of the vehicles will have a white upper area with red pull straps, a Speed Blue accent stitch and carbon-fiber trim. The jet’s cockpit seats will mimic those in the front seat of the car. The car’s steering wheel design will resemble the jet’s yoke. Even the Chalk Alcantara trim roof lining on the car will mimic that in the jet.
Both private jet and car will have a specially designed logo: Two wings, one representing the wing from the Phenom 300E and the other representing the rear wing of the 911. To further solidify the partnership, the aircraft registration number will appears on both the car’s rear wing and the sides of its key.
Each of the “lucky” owners will get a Porsche Design luggage set with their lavish purchase, including a pilot’s case and two weekender bags. Want more to seal the deal? Purchasers of the dynamic duo will also receive a special edition of the new 1919 Globetimer UTC watch. The dial on the Porsche Design watch will feature the same exclusive paint colors used for both jet and car!
The Phenom 300E is the fastest and longest ranged single pilot light business jet in the world, with speed up to 0.8 Mach, and range of 2’010 nm. Its external and internal design make it look and feel like a jet built for a king! It is equipped with an exclusive Oval Lite® cabin, with multiple design configurations to satisfy the business and leisure needs of every customer. According to Embraer, the Phenom 300E’s cabin displays seamless integration of style, technology, and purposeful usability. Its cabin also features nice® HD cabin management and inflight entertainment system. This robust jet is an excellent performer, with excellent dispatch reliability, low operational costs and relatively simple maintenance. Its engines are powerful, yet efficient, offering a reduced noise footprint and fewer emissions. In addition, the Phenom 300E’s cockpit is equipped with state-of-the-art Prodigy FlightDeck running Garmin 3000 avionics.
The question remains… Who will seal the deal? Deliveries of the dynamic duet will begin in 2021!
