Porsche teamed up with Embraer for the high-speed duo, known as the "Duet".
Earlier this year, Lamborghini announced that it was partnering up with The Italian Sea Group to build a powerful luxury yacht called the Tecnomar. Obviously, the Italian marque recognized that its A-list clientele wants to get around in style whether that's on land or sea, so why not give them a sporty boat that matches their Lambo?
Well, Porsche has embraced this same concept of matching multi-mode transportation by joining forces with Embraer, an aircraft manufacturer. The pairing is called the "Duet" and consists of a Porsche 911 Turbo S and a matching Embraer Phenom 300E business jet.
"Porsche and Embraer share a host of common values," said the Head of Personalization and Classic at Porsche, Alexander Fabig. "We are using the know-how of both brands to jointly develop a one-of-a-kind duo of sports car and jet that appeals to both customer groups."
A more powerful pairing will be hard to come by, that's for sure. The 911 Turbo S produces 640 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine, making it one of the quickest cars Porsche has ever made. Like the Phenom 300E jet, this Turbo S is finished in two-tone Platinum Silver Metallic and matt Jet Black Grey Metallic paint.
A special logo was even developed specifically for both, featuring in specific spots inside and outside. Inside the 911, the two-tone leather steering wheel matches the jet's yoke, while the leather loop for folding the front seats forward is red; the jet uses these same matching loops.
The Porsche's door sill trims features illuminated "NO STEP" lettering, mirroring the signs on the jet's wings. Unsurprisingly, a Porsche Design luggage set is included with two weekend bags and a pilot's case.
As for the Phenom 300E jet itself, well, it has a high-speed cruise of 464 knots (over 533 mph) and a range of 2,010 nautical miles (2,313 miles). The stylish cabin includes a wardrobe, an entertainment system, and a refreshment center.
The matching duo is limited to just ten examples, and if you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it, but do consider that a stock 911 Turbo S already starts at over $200,000. You can expect to pay over $10 million for the privilege. Until flying cars combine the joys of land and air travel, this is a perfectly satisfying solution for a select few.
