Embraer's and Porsche's limited-edition Phenom 300E and Porsche 911 Turbo S "Duet" pairing incorporates a number of design elements that reflect both the light jet and automobile.

Get A Porsche With That Phenom

The automaker and Embraer have announced a limited-edition package deal.

Embraer and Porsche have announced the pairing of a limited-edition Phenom 300E and Porsche 911 Turbo S. The aircraft and luxury auto will have 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 will be limited to just 10 pairs and will include a three-piece baggage set and a Swiss titanium wristwatch that matches the clocks found on the panels of the Phenom 300Es and Porsche 911s.

The $9.65 million light jet offers upgrades in speed, safety, and cabin amenities.

The companies have also designed a 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 and is featured on the aircraft side ledge and 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, vice president of Embraer design operations.

Design inspiration for the aircraft mirrors that of the car, and vice versa, he added. For example, the sew style on the Phenom 300E seat is patterned after that of the 911 Turbo S, and the seats in both feature red pull straps, a Speed Blue accent stitch, and carbon-fiber shrouds. The cockpit seats of the Phenom 300E were redesigned to match the car.

The aircraft and car also feature the same exterior paint pallette and general scheme—the upper part with platinum silver metallic paint, transitioning to jet gray metallic at the bottom. Dividing the two paint colors is a trim strip with lines in brilliant chrome and speed blue. Further, the air intakes of the 911 Turbo S are painted in brilliant chrome to match the Phenom 300E’s nacelle leading edges. LED door projectors on the 911 cast the Duet collaboration logo on the ground, while the door sill trims feature a “No Step” plate, mirroring the messaging on the Phenom’s wing.
