Porsche and Embraer Let Your 911 Turbo Match Your Private Jet

Porsche, Embraer making 10 numbers-matching pairs

  • Keep out of carpools and TSA lines

  • No word on how this matches your train or yacht


Embraer and Porsche are pairing up to make sure that you’re as jet-set on the ground as you are in the air. Letting you build a 911 Turbo S to match your Phenom 300E business jet with what might be the most expensive special edition car around.

Called Duet, the extremely limited edition pairing (just 10) was the inspiration of Embraer’s executive jet design and marketing departments as well as Porsche Exclusiv Manufaktur. Taking advantage, we assume, of the rapid recovery rate of vehicle sales, as well as the desire to not use public transportation or commercial air travel unless necessary, this will let you drive your Porsche 911 Turbo S as close to your own plane as your FBO will allow you.

Both the jet and the Embraer are painted in two-tone Platinum Silver Metallic and matte Jet Grey Metallic, with trip stripes in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. The companies call the trim work “a complex manual process,” and they’re finished with a special logo that uses a stylised Phenom Wing and a 911 Sport Design pack rear wing.

The car gets plane-like No Step illuminated lettering on the door sills and there is an artificial horizon on the Sport Chrono stopwatch. They’ll also paint your jet’s registration number on the underside of the 911’s rear wing. Buy both and you’ll also get a Porsche Design luggage set including a pair of weekend bags and a pilot’s case. Wrapping it up is a 1919 Globetimer UTC watch from Porsche Design.

The 911 Turbo S is a 640 hp sports coupe powered by a 3.7L twin-turbo boxer-six, while the Phenom 300E boasts a cruise speed of 464 knots, a range of 3,724 km, and is powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada turbofan engines each making 3,478 lbs of thrust. It seats a maximum of nine plus two crew.
