Embraer Executive Jets has delivered the first limited-edition Phenom 300E light jet as part of its “Duet” collaboration with German automaker Porsche, Embraer announced June 30.

The delivery from Embraer’s customer center in Melbourne, Florida, to an undisclosed customer based in Fort Lauderdale represents the first of 10 planned custom pairings of the Phenom 300E with the 640-hp Porsche 911 Turbo S coupe. Porshe and Embraer worked in tandem to match design elements of the two vehicles, which are offered for a reported $11 million with exclusive accessories.

Embraer delivered the first Phenom 300E from Melbourne to Texas law firm Dunham & Jones in June 2020. The 300E—for “enhanced”—comes with more powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E engines and increased range from 1,971 nm to 2,010 nm. The original Garmin G1000-based Prodigy flight deck in the Phenom 300 is upgraded in the E-model to the G3000 Prodigy Touch avionics suite.

The factory-new list price of the Phenom 300E is $9.65 million, according to the summer 2021 edition of the Aircraft Bluebook. The 911 Turbo S starts at $207,000, according to Porshe.

“We designed Duet in collaboration with Porsche to introduce a seamless travel experience for those wanting to arrive in something totally original, while holding true to our vision of delivering the ultimate experience in business aviation,” said Michael Amalfitano, Embraer Executive Jets president and CEO. “The Phenom 300E is already the best-selling light jet in the world, and we continue to push the boundaries to provide even more value and bring new experiences to our customers.”
