Porsche and Embraer Deliver First Private Jet ‘Duet’ With Matching 911 Turbo S
Only 10 will ever be made and this combo now resides in Fort Lauderdale.
Not to be outdone by Mercedes-AMG's GT Black Series-inspired Cigarette boat, Porsche and Embraer are offering a special edition of the latter company's Phenom 300E business jet to go with a matching 911 Turbo S. Only 10 jet-and-car pairs like this are being made and the first one has already been delivered to an anonymous customer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
That 10-unit production run may sound ultra-special but it's important to note that Embraer moved just 51 Phenom 300s in 2019, according to Aerospace Manufacturing. In other words, yeah, it is ultra-limited but, then again, so is a regular, non-Porsche-collab jet.
Just like the Porsche, the Phenom 300 is quite the machine. With a high-speed cruise of 464 knots (or about 534 mph) and a range of 2,010 nautical miles, it's apparently the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot certified jet out there and, despite the double-digit annual sales numbers, also happens to the best-selling light jet in the world. The 640-horsepower 911 Turbo S, meanwhile, only tops out at a relatively pedestrian 205 mph but can take care of the first 60 in 2.6 seconds.
Mimicking the Turbo S, the special edition planes' seat patterns will look just like those in the cars, complete with red pull straps, blue accent stitching, and carbon fiber shrouds. They will also, of course, be painted in the same shades of two-tone grey with matching, hand-painted white-and-blue pinstripes. Also note the vanity N911EJ tail number (essentially license plates for planes) on the one in the photos that's also seen on the underside of the Porsche's active rear wing.
Customers will then get a custom luggage set and a special Porsche Design watch because of course, they will.
