An Ultimate Pairing Of The Skies And Land By Embraer And Porsche

An Exclusive Option To Purchase A Matching Customised Porsche 911 Turbo S When Purchasing A Special Edition Embraer Phenom 300E.

Two global companies, highly celebrated for their world-class engineering, performance and design recently came together in creating a unique, limited-edition, limited-quantity paired offering, befitting the sky and land. Embraer and Porsche will be producing ten pairs of Duet, a paring of Embraer's Phenom 300E aircraft and Porsche's 911 Turbo S in providing a truly seamless experience from the road to the sky - a first in their illustrious history. 

"Duet is an exclusive package developed in a unique design collaboration with Porsche. This rare, refined combination will only be available through this one-time-only pairing," said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, 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, bringing together the pinnacle in production sports cars with the market benchmark in light jets, once again proving that we don't simply follow trends — we create them." continued Michael Amalfitano

"Porsche and Embraer share a host of common values," says Alexander Fabig, Head of Personalisation and Classic at Porsche. "As part of our cooperation, we are using the know-how of both brands to jointly develop a one-of-a-kind duo of a sports car and jet that appeals to both customer groups."

Duet brings the Phenom 300E and the 911 Turbo S into perfect harmony. With multiple accolades under both its' belts, the Phenom 300 series is the world's fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot business jet that has transformed the light jet category. Offering unprecedented and revolutionary award-winning interior design, with an abundance of cabin and baggage space to its highly intuitive avionics, the Phenom 300E is a well-rounded machine which delivers unmatched performance, exceptional comfort and class-leading technology at enviably low operating costs, with features previously available only on much larger jets. Similarly, the 911 Turbo S, is synonymous with both performance and road usability making it one of the iconic models in the 911 range.  

"Porsche and Embraer share a host of common values," says Alexander Fabig, Head of Personalisation and Classic at Porsche. "As part of our cooperation, we are using the know-how of both brands to jointly develop a one-of-a-kind duo of a sports car and jet that appeals to both customer groups."

Both the Phenom 300E and the 911 Turbo S are uniquely designed in tandem revolving around each of their signatures - speed and style, luxury and power fused together in creating Duet. The Phenom 300E and the 911 Turbo S both draws inspiration from one another and will feature a customised interior and paint scheme. 

"This is the perfect marriage of car and jet, as personified by the exclusive collaboration logo. The logo 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. To further solidify this symbiotic partnership, 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. 

This exclusive collaboration logo is embossed (to symbolise lift) on the seat headrests of the aircraft, and debossed (to symbolise downforce) on the seat headrests of the car. The collaboration logo is also featured on the aircraft's side ledge, speaker grills and mounted near the main door. Each paring also features a special badge, representing one of only ten delivered. There is also an option to select the location of a blue chip, reflective of their position among the ten units in accordance to preference.  

In creating a seamless transition from aircraft to car, the design inspiration for the aircraft mirrors that of the car, and vice versa. For the Phenom 300E, the sew style of the seats were patterned after that of the 911 Turbo S and features red pull straps, a Speed Blue accent stitch, and carbon fiber shrouds to create a shared connection. The cockpit seats of the Phenom 300E were redesigned to match the car.

Within the 911 Turbo S, Porsche introduced a unique colour combination for the steering wheel in matching the aircraft's yoke, with a Speed Blue accent at 12 o'clock as well as a first - Chalk Alcantara trim roof lining - an homage to the aircraft. To round out the interior of the 911 Turbo S, the stopwatch of the Sport Chrono package features an artificial horizon inspired by instrumentation in the aircraft cockpit. The door sill trims feature "No Step" lettering illuminated in red - a reference to the corresponding signs on aircraft wings. The entire interior of the 911 Turbo S is exclusively hand-crafted and installed by Porsche Exclusive Manufacture, and is not available in this form for the series production range.

The aircraft and car share the same exterior paint pallet and general scheme. For the first time, Porsche has combined gloss and satin-gloss paintwork. The upper part of the car is finished with Platinum Silver Metallic, transitioning to Jet Grey Metallic at the bottom. Dividing the two paint colors is a trim strip with lines in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. The car is entirely hand-painted, which is unique to this project and reflective of the Phenom 300E paint process.

The alloy wheels of the 911 Turbo S are painted in Platinum Silver Metallic, using a revolutionary laser process to expose a Speed Blue underlay on the rim flange. The air intakes of the 911 Turbo S are painted in Brilliant Chrome to match the leading edge nacelles of the aircraft. The LED door projectors cast the Duet collaboration logo on the ground. An indoor car cover with "Remove before flight" tags is also included. 

The exclusive Duet Porsche 911 Turbo S can only be purchased in tandem with its sibling Phenom 300E. To mark this first ever collaboration between Embraer, Porsche AG, and Porsche Design, Duet customers will also receive a custom Duet logo luggage set with a pilot's bag and two weekenders, as well as a special edition Porsche Design 1919 Globe timer UTC titanium-case watch inspired by the aircraft's cockpit.

Ten limited-edition pairs of the Duet are now available for order with deliveries to begin in 2021.
