You can now get your special edition Porsche 911 with a side of Embraer Phenom 300E

Customers who opt for a special edition Embraer Phenom 300E business jet can also buy a matching customised Porsche 911 Turbo S.

There's exclusive and there's exclusive. This is the latter. A new partnership between Embraer and Porsche will see 10 unique duets delivered to clients. The bundle consists of a special edition Porsche 911 Turbo S and an Embraer Phenom 300E.

"A partnership of this magnitude could only be brought about by two innovative companies with a shared vision: to offer the ultimate customer experience. Every detail of this stellar duo was inspired by the particular standards of our discerning customers," says Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.

The models were created to pair together. Each wears a two-tone Platinum Silver Metallic gloss and Jet Grey Metallic satin matte two-tone finish. Trim parts are featured in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue. The paint process is complex and completed by hand on both the car and plane.

A logo has been specially designed to celebrate the partnership. It takes its cue from aerodynamics and is made up of a stylized aeroplane wing from the Phenom 300E and the rear wing of the flagship 911 with the Sport Design package. It is used on the exterior and interior of both products and can be found embossed on head restraints and as part of a limited-edition badge.

Other stylized elements connect the 911 Turbo S to the plane. The individual registration of the respective jet can be found on the underside of the rear wing and on the sides of the vehicle key. The door sill trims feature "No step" lettering illuminated in red. The dial on the stopwatch from the Sport Chrono package has a printed-on artificial horizon.

There is a special emblem on the B-pillar: in addition to the cooperation logo, it includes ten small rectangular fields corresponding to the limited number of units. One of these fields is blue. Every customer can select where this field is placed, representing that the car is one of only ten. This emblem is repeated on the outside of the jet.

The car is traditionally engined for its trim level.

Inside the Porsche's cabin, the color scheme from the exterior continues with black and chalk-colored leather that matches the jet's yoke. The 12 o'clock marking on the steering wheel is in Speed Blue and the car comes standard with Porsche's Carbon interior package. Chalk-colored Alcantara covers the roofline while the front seats have high-gloss carbon accents. The leather loop for folding the front seat backrests is red, matching the loops of the jet's seats.

The roofliner is covered with chalk-coloured Alcantara. The front seats have decorative elements made of high-gloss carbon. The cooperation logo is embossed on the head restraints. The leather loop for folding the front seat backrests is red, matching the loops of the jet's seats. The entire vehicle interior is hand-crafted, installed by the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, and is not available in this form for the series production range.

Every customer who purchases the dynamic duo will also receive a Porsche Design luggage set that includes a pilot's case and two weekend bags. Additionally, a special edition of the new 1919 Globetimer UTC timepiece from Porsche Design is included and carries the design elements of the duet on its face.

A special night design is obtained through use of luminous Superluminova material: the runway lights up in light blue in the dark, while the hour indices and hour and minute hands shine in light green. The tip of the date pointer is shaped like the Embraer logo. This is the letter "E", stylised in the shape of a symmetrical plane. The black leather strap is made of real Porsche interior leather and features contrast stitching in Speed Blue. The cooperation logo can be found on the leather strap, the rear of the case and the dial. The 1919 UTC Globetimer Embraer is also limited to ten units and is exclusively reserved for owners of the jet and vehicle.

Like the Porsche 911, the Phenom 300E is performance-focused. It's the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot jet available. It has a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 3,724 km (2,010 nautical miles) with NBAA IRF reserves. The aircraft is capable of flying at 13,716 metres (45,000 feet), powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E1 engines with 3,478 pounds (15.47 kN) of thrust each.

Space is key. The Phenom 300E's baggage compartment is among the largest in its category. It also has a spacious cabin with the largest windows in its class. A private lavatory is on board as well as seats with recline and full movement capability. It has distinct temperature zones for pilots and passengers, a wardrobe and refreshment center, voice and data communications options, and an entertainment system.

Pricing for the duet is in the "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" category.

What was your best car-related experience this year?

Chris Teague

This year has been a lot of things, but it hasn't been boring. Even if we focus only on the car world, there's plenty to talk about, from microchip-related new vehicle shortages to the wave of new electric vehicles hitting the market. That leaves us with a question for all of you: What was the best or most memorable car moment for you in 2021? I'll get the conversation started.

Porsche Cayenne GTS My SoCal Cayenne śaw snow for the first time in its nearly 200k-mile life last week.Chris Teague

I'd spent a good portion of 2021 wanting a new-old car to drive when I wasn't testing a new vehicle. That's harder than you'd think for someone who thinks, talks, and writes about cars all day, because there are so many interesting, risky, and downright funky options out there in every price range. The added headache for me was that I'd chosen to shop for a "fun" car in one of the most volatile car markets ever seen. Even the extremely high-mileage "untouchable" European cars I wanted to buy were commanding ridiculous prices.

After a solid few months of waffling between various rattletrap Mercedes-AMG, BMW M, and Audi S/RS cars, I landed on an option that had escaped me before: The Porsche Cayenne. First-generation Cayennes are a real bargain now, but the 955/957 (Porsche's internal code for the SUVs) can experience major problems that occur with or without regular maintenance and care. I was determined to buy one, and wasn't overly concerned about mileage, as long as I could count the number of owners on one hand. There was a beautiful 2009 Cayenne GTS with 90,000 miles but nine owners, a gorgeous 2004 Cayenne Turbo with a concerning engine tick, and many more just like them. Finally, I decided to risky-click a 196,000-mile Cayenne GTS in Southern California. It had one owner and one dealer-owner for a month or two prior to sale, its condition looked decent in photos, and I was able to negotiate a reasonable enough price that shipping it from San Diego to Maine wasn't a huge problem.

I had two traveling Euro mechanics check the car out, and both confirmed that it was well-worn but mechanically sound, so I jumped. Ten days later, on a snowy, icy, dark Maine afternoon, the Cayenne arrived. Cosmetically, there were a few things the dealer and mechanics failed to mention, but overall, it looked good. The SUV passed Maine safety and emissions testing without problem, got a new set of Michelins, and I was on my way.

A few days of driving revealed what I was really in for. A check engine light revealed a camshaft position sensor error and the Cayenne displayed a nasty vibration at idle. A new sensor and motor mounts, and I'm on my way. I'll update you as more things break or miraculously work, but I want to hear your memories from 2021.

Email me at chris@automotivemap.com, and I will compile the best and most interesting stories for a story on New Year's Day. May you all have a wonderful 2022.

Insurance company Hagerty compiled a list of cars it thinks will climb in value and price.

Hagerty

Vehicle prices have grown across the board this year, but collector car prices have been on the move for years. The world of online car auctions and car shows such as Radwood have driven attention to obscure and otherwise unknown cars, pushing their prices. Insurance and overall automotive lifestyle company Hagerty is stepping in to help. It complied a list of vehicles that it believes are currently a good value and have potential to climb. The Hagerty Bull Market List covers ten vehicles of all types.

Hagerty’s list is expansive, covering several vehicle types, prices, and time periods. The list features vehicles built between 1963 and 2012, and is designed to nudge people into buying cars before they become unattainable. This is especially important now, as online auction sites have moved the markets for some previously obscure cars well past the point of reason.

The Bull Market List isn’t intended to give you an inside track on car values so that you can flip them for quick profit. Instead, the list should give you the push you need if you’re already on the fence about buying a car to keep and drive a cool vehicle. Hagerty wants people to buy the cars and have the ability to pass them on to other enthusiasts without charging exorbitant prices.

The Bull Market List includes (with excellent condition pricing):

  • 1965-1970 Cadillac DeVille ($28,800)
  • 1969-1974 Ferrari 246 Dino ($365,800)
  • 1983-1997 Land Rover Defender ($61,400)
  • 1979-1985 Mazda RX-7 ($17,600)
  • 1962-1967 Mercedes-Benz 230SL ($80,500)
  • 1963-1967 Pontiac GTO ($100,200)
  • 1992-1995 Porsche 968 ($38,000)
  • 1985-1995 Suzuki Samurai ($10,200)
  • 2008-2012 Tesla Roadster Sport ($97,000)
  • 1975-1993 Volvo 245 ($15,800)

If you’re considering one of the vehicles on the list and have the means, it’s a good idea to act in the near future. Vehicle prices are rising due to supply chain shortages to the point that even older cars are climbing. That, plus the effects of online car auctions, have made it hard to find a good value car.
