There’s exclusive and there’s exclusive. This is the latter. A new partnership between Embraer and Porsche will see 10 unique duets delivered to clients. The bundle consists of a special edition Porsche 911 Turbo S and an Embraer Phenom 300E.
“A partnership of this magnitude could only be brought about by two innovative companies with a shared vision: to offer the ultimate customer experience. Every detail of this stellar duo was inspired by the particular standards of our discerning customers,” says Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
The models were created to pair together. Each wears a two-tone Platinum Silver Metallic gloss and Jet Grey Metallic satin matte two-tone finish. Trim parts are featured in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. The paint process is complex and completed by hand on both the car and plane.

A logo has been specially designed to celebrate the partnership. It takes its cue from aerodynamics and is made up of a stylized aeroplane wing from the Phenom 300E and the rear wing of the flagship 911 with the Sport Design package. It is used on the exterior and interior of both products and can be found embossed on head restraints and as part of a limited-edition badge.
Other stylized elements connect the 911 Turbo S to the plane. 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. The dial on the stopwatch from the Sport Chrono package has a printed-on artificial horizon.
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. This emblem is repeated on the outside of the jet.
The car is traditionally engined for its trim level.
Inside the Porsche’s cabin, the color scheme from the exterior continues with black and chalk-colored leather that matches the jet’s yoke. The 12 o’clock marking on the steering wheel is in Speed Blue and the car comes standard with Porsche’s Carbon interior package. Chalk-colored Alcantara covers the roofline while the front seats have high-gloss carbon accents. The leather loop for folding the front seat backrests is red, matching the loops of the jet’s seats.

The leather loop for folding the front seat backrests is red, matching the loops of the jet’s seats. The entire vehicle interior is hand-crafted, installed by the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, and is not available in this form for the series production range.
Every customer who purchases the dynamic duo will also receive a Porsche Design luggage set that includes a pilot’s case and two weekend bags. Additionally, a special edition of the new 1919 Globetimer UTC timepiece from Porsche Design is included and carries the design elements of the duet on its face.
A special night design is obtained through use of luminous Superluminova material: the runway lights up in light blue in the dark, while the hour indices and hour and minute hands shine in light green. The tip of the date pointer is shaped like the Embraer logo. This is the letter “E”, stylised in the shape of a symmetrical plane. The black leather strap is made of real Porsche interior leather and features contrast stitching in Speed Blue. The cooperation logo can be found on the leather strap, the rear of the case and the dial. The 1919 UTC Globetimer Embraer is also limited to ten units and is exclusively reserved for owners of the jet and vehicle.

Like the Porsche 911, the Phenom 300E is performance-focused. It’s the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot jet available. It has a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 3,724 km (2,010 nautical miles) with NBAA IRF reserves. The aircraft is capable of flying at 13,716 metres (45,000 feet), powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E1 engines with 3,478 pounds (15.47 kN) of thrust each.
Space is key. The Phenom 300E’s baggage compartment is among the largest in its category. It also has a spacious cabin with the largest windows in its class. A private lavatory is on board as well as seats with recline and full movement capability. It has distinct temperature zones for pilots and passengers, a wardrobe and refreshment center, voice and data communications options, and an entertainment system.

Pricing for the duet is in the “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” category.
