If you’re like me, it’s a real problem that every time you pull up to your private jet in your Porsche 911 Turbo S and people don’t immediately know that you own both cause they don’t match – No? How does that not drive y’all crazy? Well, either way, Porsche and Embraer have solved this, uh, problem (?) for the people.
A free Porsche 911 Turbo S?
If you are down to buy a 10-million-dollar Jet from Embraer, then you will be allowed to buy a one-of-10, two-tone Porsche 911 Turbo S to match. I must say, “free” is not exactly the most accurate descriptor of its cost; $204,850 is a little more accurate. But, if you are buying a $10,000,000 private jet, an extra $200k is basically nothing. So, depending on how you look at it, it’s like a super-rich person’s version of buy-one-get-one-free cheese biscuits night at the Red Lobster.
The Embraer Porsche 911 Turbo S
MotorTrend reports the ultra-limited Porsche 911 Turbo S is dressed up in a very un-Porsche-like playfulness, really driving (flying) home the aeronautic theme. The first and most noticeable feature is the unique, two-tone paint job matching the private jet. The Platinum Silver Metallic and matte Jet Grey paint are accented with chrome and bits of Speed Blue. Some of the more fun touches include “N911EJ” embossed under the rear spoiler, as well as “No Step” on the door sill plates.
MotorTrend says that the interior, while being fairly standard, has some slashes of Speed Blue throughout. The seats and dash sport a fair bit of carbon fiber and Alcantara giving the 911 a proper high-end sports car feel. As has become fairly common with high-end limited cars, the 911 comes with a set of matching custom luggage, not that there is anywhere in a 911 to put it, but that’s what the jet is for.
I guess, since you bought a plane and a car, Porsche decided to throw in a custom 1919 Globetimer UTC timepiece to help catch your jet on time.
Its still just a Porsche 911 and there’s nothing wrong with that
Although compared to a literal jet, the Porsche 911 Turbo S seems little more than a collector’s trinket, but it’s still a 911, for crying out loud! The Porsche 911 Turbo S rocks a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six, mounted in the back, making 640 hp. That’s one hell of a trinket.
This Porsche jet accessory also sports an eight-speed transaxle transmission and an all-wheel-drive system putting the power down on all four points. The madness continues with all-wheel steering and carbon-ceramic brakes for monster handling and face-ripping stopping power. Porsche really isn’t offering up a monogrammed towel; this is a full-blown pedigree racer.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S is one of the best super cars in the game
When MotorTrend compared the 911 Turbo S cabriolet to the McLaren 70s Spider and the Mercedes AMG GT R Roadster, the 911 ran away with it in nearly every category. The Porsche is monstrously quick, refined and upscale, and handles like a pro. The MotorTrend tester says that of those three supercars, the Porsche was the one that inspired the most confidence to be driven hard.
I don’t have many good things to say about buying a Porsche that matches your private Jet. I will say that if you’re gonna spend that kind of money, at least it’s on a truly top-grade sports car.
