Porsche Debuts Luxury Condos With Personal Auto Elevators & Garage [Pics]
Slated to be completed by 2016, the Porsche Design Tower houses apartments with glass car lifts and a Sky Garage.
The Porsche Design Tower in Miami houses luxury oceanfront condos with glass elevators that take residents and their cars up to their homes. The 60-story tower enables residents to be transported up to their doorstep and keep their car parked within their apartment’s “Sky Garage.”
First, the car is scanned and placed onto a turntable. When the engine is switched off, the turntable aligns with a glass elevator and a robotic arm scoops the car up and puts it inside. When the elevator reaches the correct floor, the arm parks the car and leaves the resident almost at their front door. The 45-90 second ride can be used to enjoy the panoramic ocean views and watch the in-elevator TV.
