Embraer and Porsche have announced a limited-edition Phenom 300E and Porsche 911 Turbo S pairing. Each shares similar exterior and interior elements designed through a collaboration of the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer and German carmaker. Deliveries will begin in 2021.
Called Duet, the $10.9 million package is limited to just 10 pairs and also includes a special three-piece baggage set and exclusive Swiss titanium wristwatch that matches the clocks found on the panels of the limited-edition Phenom 300Es and Porsche 911s. “Duet is an exclusive package developed in a unique design collaboration with Porsche. This combination will only be available through this one-time-only pairing,” said Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “In the spirit of delivering the ultimate customer experience, we are fusing two of the most notable brands in the aerospace and automotive industries.”
The companies have also designed an exclusive collaboration logo that “brings together the aeronautical requirement of lift—depicted by the Phenom 300E winglet—with the automotive requirement of downforce—depicted by the rear wing of the flagship 911.” This logo is embossed on the seat headrests of the car and aircraft, as well as featured on the aircraft side ledge, speaker grills, and mounted near the main door. To further solidify the symbiotic pairing, the aircraft registration number appears on both the car’s rear wing and the sides of its key, said Jay Beever, v-p of Embraer design operations.
