There are hundreds of exquisite elements of this fantasy high-rise from Porsche Design, including its marquee feature: car elevators that bring residents up to their floor in the car.
Car elevators are actually nothing new – but this system of laser-guided wheel holders ensures everything is safe before heading upwards to your floor.
Upon arrival at your unit, the system will know to put the car in nose-first or tail-first. It is deposited onto the floor on the in-unit garages, and completes the lift.

From the drafting tables and wild technology of the Porsche Design think-tank comes this 130-unit oceanfront tower on some of the best beaches in the world.
These beaches are known for fantastic aerial photo opportunities of mass shark migrations north. Even better than an aerial photo is a bird’s-eye-view from the top 60th floor SuperDuplex.
Here’s a recent video still image of the local sharks, who prefer to move in about 20 to 30 feet of water up the Florida coastline. This video was shot by helicopter near Deerfield beach.
This helps avoid swimmers, but some day – Porsche Design Tower residents will see some amazing close calls with hammerheads, Great Whites, and every shark in between.
That is a very special, always-changing view of a tropical paradise.
Even the most affordable of the $5-million-plus floorplans will be enough to feel like king of the Atlantic with 4200 square feet of living space and a glass-walled two-car garage right next to the living room fireplaces.
So this is not a time-share in Boca. This is a fully-staffed museum-quality building that is both a showpiece for Porsche’s foray into lifestyle design, and a tech-infused beach getaway for some of the world’s richest people.
These residences are not yet complete, but the developer preview renderings are enough to fill your dreams of the ultimate high-rise castle in the sky.
