Porsche and Embraer present the ultimate pair: a sports car and a jet
Customers who opt for a special edition Embraer Phenom 300E business jet can also buy a matching customised Porsche 911 Turbo S.
The strictly limited edition is the result of a cooperation between the two brands. The project team comprised members of Embraer’s executive jet design and marketing departments in Melbourne/Florida (USA), the Porsche design department “Style Porsche” in Weissach (Germany), Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur in Stuttgart (Germany) and Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See (Austria).
Porsche and Embraer: high performance on land and in the air
Both brands have the same goal: apart from a unique experience, they offer customers all over the world exclusive products that can be personalised and enhanced in almost infinite ways. “Porsche and Embraer share a host of common values,” says Alexander Fabig, Head of Personalisation and Classic at Porsche. As part of our cooperation, we are using the know-how of both brands to jointly develop a one-of-a-kind duo of a sports car and jet that appeals to both customer groups. The special edition – limited to ten units – is aimed above all at customers who place great importance on performance, innovation, technology and custom personalisation.
Duet: 911 Turbo S and Phenom 300E
The sports car and jet have the same two-tone paintwork in Platinum Silver Metallic (gloss) and matt Jet Grey Metallic (satin gloss) with trim strips in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. A logo was specially designed for the cooperation. It takes its cue from aerodynamics and is made up of a stylised aeroplane wing from the Phenom 300E and the rear wing of the flagship 911 with the Sport Design package.
Duet logo and vehicle key
The Duet logo is used on the exterior and in the interior of both products: it is embossed on the head restraints, for example, and also features on the limited-edition badge. Other design details on this very special 911 Turbo S establish a link to aviation: the individual registration of the respective jet can be found on the underside of the rear wing and on the sides of the vehicle key. The door sill trims feature “No step” lettering illuminated in red.
Two-tone paintwork and elegant details: the exterior
The latest generation of the Porsche 911 Turbo S is more powerful, dynamic and comfortable than ever before. It is powered by a 3.745-litre boxer engine with 478 kW (650 PS; 911 Turbo S: Fuel consumption combined 11.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 254 g/km (as of 11/2020)).
For the Coupé produced as part of the cooperation with Embraer, Porsche has combined gloss and satin-gloss paintwork for the first time: the upper part of the sports car is finished in Platinum Silver Metallic, while the bottom part is in Jet Grey Metallic.
The 911 Turbo S in limited edition Duet
The alloy wheels in Exclusive design are painted in Platinum Silver Metallic and feature lines in Speed Blue on the rim flange. The side air intakes and side window trims are painted in Brilliant Chrome and therefore pick up a design feature of the jet’s engines. There is a special emblem on the B-pillar: in addition to the cooperation logo, it includes ten small rectangular fields corresponding to the limited number of units. One of these fields is blue. Every customer can select where this field is placed, representing that the car is one of only ten.
Features borrowed from the jet cockpit: the details in the interior
Exclusivity is also the motto in the interior of the 911 Turbo S: here, the designers have realised a special colour scheme and combined black and chalk-coloured leather. The black leather surfaces are decorated with stitching in Speed Blue. The steering wheel also features the two-tone leather combination, matching the jet’s yoke. The 12 o’clock marking is in Speed Blue, the Carbon interior package is on board as standard and comes with a high-gloss finish. The leather loop for folding the front seat backrests is red, matching the loops of the jet’s seats.
