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 the cooperation between the two brands. It is named “Duet”, and is based on the two sportiest and most successful products from each segment. 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), the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur in Stuttgart (Germany) and the Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See (Austria).
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. The paint finish is produced in a complex manual process. A logo was specially designed for the cooperation. It takes its cue from aerodynamics and is made up of a stylised aeroplane wing of the Phenom 300E and the rear wing of the flagship 911 from the Sport Design package.
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)). The harmonious concept, which perfectly balances driving pleasure, dynamics and sportiness, can be experienced in everyday use as well as on the race track.
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. A trim strip with lines in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue runs over the sides and doors. All the paintwork is carried out by hand, like the painting process for the jet.
The alloy wheels in Exclusive design are painted in Platinum Silver Metallic and feature lines in Speed Blue on the rim flange. These are produced using laser technology. 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. The LED door projectors cast the cooperation logo onto the ground. 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 being one of ten. This emblem is repeated on the outside of the jet.
