Purchase an Embraer Phenom 300E and you can buy a 911 Turbo S to go with it. Lucky!

There’s nothing more annoying than owning a private jet and supercar that clash. It's one of those rarely discussed first world problems that the one per cent apparently have to struggle with. Thankfully, those wanting both an Embraer Phenom 300E jet and Porsche 911 Turbo S can have their modes of transport exactly matched, with the special edition 992 inheriting a colour scheme and details from the £7.6 million 10-seater.

Each of the ten 'Duet' pairs produced are done so exclusively as a styling exercise, but as you’d expect, it’s all high-end stuff. The Turbo S receives the same lick of Platinum silver metallic and matt Jet Grey metallic as the plane, applied in a two-tone theme that’s set against chrome and ‘Speed Blue’ trim. The side intakes and window surrounds are also chromed to match the jet, while the Porsche’s 20 and 21-inch alloys are finished in the same shade of Platinum as the body, with blue lines around the rim, applied using laser technology, no less.

Open the door and LED door projectors shine a logo designed to signal the Porsche- Embraer co-operation onto the ground. The logo is also displayed as an emblem on the car’s B-pillar, with ten small rectangular sections corresponding to the limited run number. One of these fields is blue, to represent his particular pairing, with a matching emblem displayed on the outside of the jet like a matching tattoo (kind of). The logo is said to take inspiration from aerodynamics and intermingles the stylised aeroplane wing of the Phenom 300E and rear wing of the Turbo S.

Inside, black and chalk-coloured leathers are matched by a black leather-wrapped dash and trim. Speed Blue stitching keeps the theme up, along with the steering wheel, which gets two-tone leather and the centre line in the same blue. Porsche’s carbon interior package is included as standard, while the headliner is a chalk-coloured Alcantara; the front seats get sections of high-gloss carbon and the aforementioned logo is embossed on the head rests. You also get ‘No Step’ lettering on the kickplates (a genuine nice touch) and a red leather loop for folding the front seat backrests, mimicking those on the jet’s chairs. Which is also kind of cool. 

Obviously, someone with a twin-turbo flat six supercar and business jet needs matching bags, and this partnership duly delivers. Every customer gets a Porsche Design luggage set, including a pilot’s case and two weekender bags. On top of that, you get a 1919 Globetimer UTC timepiece from Porsche Design. The dial features the same Platinum silver metallic and Jet Grey metallic colours, as well as altimeter markings as a finishing touch. You’ll be the envy of all your friends with their unmatching supercars and private jets. The idiots.
