Porsche and jet manufacturer Embraer have collaborated on a plane and sports car combo, allowing customers to purchase a matching Porsche for their Embraer jet.

10 Nov 2020 | International News : Germany

Porsche and Embraer have come together for a collaboration that might not be immediately obvious, but when given some thought, could actually be one of the best pairings ever created. The result is an exceptional creation between the two brands. Named 'Duet', it is based on the two sportiest and most successful products from each segment.

The special edition - limited to ten units - is aimed above all at customers who place great importance on performance, innovation, technology and custom personalisation. At the same time, the focus for both products is on combining performance and everyday usability.

A special logo was designed for the collaboration, and it is embossed on the headrests and shone on the ground through LED puddle lights
The 911 Turbo S and Phenom 300E have the same two-tone paintwork in Platinum Silver Metallic and matte Jet Grey Metallic with trim strips in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. The paint finish has been produced in a complex manual process, and a logo was specially designed for the cooperation.

Design cues from aerodynamics, together with a stylised aeroplane wing from the Phenom 300E and the rear wing of the flagship 911 with the Sport Design package form the basis of the Duet logo.

The 'Duet' logo is used on the exterior and in the interior of both products, it is embossed on the headrests and also features on the limited-edition badge. Other design details on this very special 911 Turbo S establish a link to aviation, with the individual registration of the respective jet found on the underside of the rear wing and on the sides of the vehicle key.

The registration number of each particular Embraer Phenom 300E is also present on the key of the accompanying 911 Turbo S
The door sill trims feature 'no step' lettering illuminated in red, and the dial on the stopwatch from the Sport Chrono package has a printed-on artificial horizon.

As part of the cooperation with Embraer, Porsche has combined gloss and satin-gloss paintwork for the first time, with the upper part of the sports car 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 completed 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. 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.

A matching luggage set from Porsche Design will be included with the purchase of the 911 Turbo S and Embraer jet
There is a special emblem on the B-pillar, in addition to the cooperation logo, and it includes ten small rectangular fields corresponding to the limited number of units. One of these fields is blue, with every customer being able to 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.

Exclusivity is also the motto in the interior of the 911 Turbo S. Here, the designers have realised a special colour scheme and combined black and chalk-coloured leather. The black leather surfaces are decorated with stitching in Speed Blue. The steering wheel also features the two-tone leather combination, matching the jet's yoke.

The 12 o'clock marking is in Speed Blue, with the Carbon interior package a standard option. The roof lining is covered with chalk-coloured Alcantara, and the front seats have decorative elements made of high-gloss carbon.

The cooperation logo is embossed on the head restraints. 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. The high-quality luggage includes a pilot's case and two weekend bags. The unique offering is rounded off by a special edition of the new 1919 Globetimer UTC timepiece from Porsche Design.

The innovative timepiece picks up on the design details of the cooperation. For example, the dial features the same Platinum Silver Metallic and Jet Grey Metallic paint colours used for the sports car and jet as well as altimeter markings as a finishing touch.
