The Porsche 911 Turbo S is a very quick machine indeed, and in its most recent iteration, it also is one of the best-driving 911s you can buy. We even pitted the mightiest 911 against the also-mighty McLaren 720s Spider and Mercedes AMG GT-R Roadster, and the new 911 Turbo S Cabriolet came out on top in that comparison test. Now, Porsche has partnered with the Embraer Group—that Embraer Group, that makes planes—to build 10 unique aeronautically themed versions of their newest super 911.
There is a catch, and it’s expensive: The only way to get your hands on the beautiful, two-tone, Embraer-themed 911 Turbo S models is to also buy one of the ten matching special Embraer Phenom 300E business jets. Just for reference, an Embraer Phenom 300E will cost you just under $10 million—so if you’re able to afford one of those, the $204,850 base price of a 911 Turbo S should just be a drop in the bucket, really. Even so, that’s a lot of dough for anything, and we’d be more inclined to spend out $10 million on a garage full of other cars, or just a really nice garage.
The Turbo S in question has been done up to the nines with an aeronautical theme matching the 10 special edition Phenom 300Es, thanks to the Porsche design department and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. The result is a 911 with a two-tone Platinum Silver Metallic and matte Jet Grey paint job with accents in chrome and Speed Blue. There are also special touches like “N911EA” embossed on the underside of the Turbo S’s rear wing like a tail number, and door sill plates that say “No Step” like you see on plane wings.

The interior is standard 911 fare with black and chalk-colored leathers being used throughout and the occasional hint of blue—like on the steering wheel. The headliner is chalk-colored Alcantara and there is a healthy dose of carbon fiber on the dash and on the backs of the seats. Those lucky enough to snag one of these flagships also gets a set of custom luggage by Porsche Design that includes a pilot’s case and two weekender bags that, we imagine, fit perfectly in the frunk and, more easily, in the matching jet. Porsche Design is also throwing in a custom 1919 Globetimer UTC timepiece, ya know, just in case you need help appropriating your time between your fancy car and your fancier plane.
