"There are people who view their automobiles as art," says Dezer of the building's homeowners. "The car goes up to the unit and it goes right outside your living room. One guy told us he is bringing a $25 million Ferrari with him. If you're not a car person, you may never get it. But it's the same as the way I look at a Picasso."

The 132-unit building, still under construction, will cost Dezer Development about $425 million to complete and is already 80% sold. Prices of the units range from $4.8 million to $32.5 million.

When the loan was approved for the project in September, it was the largest loan for a major construction project in the Southeast United States since the real estate recession, and exponentially larger than any post-recession loan of its kind in South Florida, according to Dezer and lender Wells Fargo.

The ultra luxury building is awe inspiring not only because of its price tag and unique car elevator, but because of the many other perks and amenities that come with this posh residence.

The building, in Sunny Isles Beach, features plunge pools and outdoor summer kitchens on the balcony of nearly every home. It also has a state-of-the-art spa, a movie theater and a "car concierge" who will tend to residents' vehicles by helping with regular maintenance, tire rotations, washing and more.New York City is home to over 70 of the world's billionaires, but when they want to get away to decompress, many shed their suit and tie for a guayabera, white slacks and boat shoes and head to South Florida for the white sand beaches, fine dining, yachting and golfing. Some will soon be heading to Sunny Isles, Florida where, according to the developer, over 20 billionaires have purchased a home at Porsche Design Tower.

What might be the future of South Florida luxury condos opens on September 1st when new owners at the Porsche building will first be able to take their cars up an elevator to their personal sky garage, including the $32.5 million penthouse. Three patented Dezervators, a glass drive-in elevator rising at 600-feet per minute, will enable residents to keep an eye on their Ferraris, Porsches and Rolls Royces while sitting in their living rooms reading the Wall Street Journal and checking out the Atlantic Ocean views.

The 60th-floor Porsche penthouse comes with a huge living and dining area, state-of-the-art kitchen, family room and four ensuite bedrooms with a total of seven baths, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, 20-foot ceilings and a private people elevator. The outdoor living areas are equally impressive with a private terrace pool and roof pool, two balconies and two summer kitchens. It has two sky garages and a separate 3,000-square-foot car gallery. The gallery can be customized by the owner for fewer cars to substitute a game room or extra living space.

Building amenities include a three-story lobby with glass car elevator observatory, movie theater, game room, oceanside restaurant with indoor/outdoor dining, private wine lockers, oceanside bar and lounge with fireplace and large-screen TVs, oceanfront pool with food and beverage service, Intracoastal Waterway sunset deck, virtual golf simulator, virtual car-race game, ballroom with bar and catering kitchen, oceanfront gym and yoga room, spa, sauna, steam rooms, hair salon and a car concierge available to give the luxury cars a wash and maintenance.

For The Woman Who LOVES Their Really Rich Guy Who Loves His Cars Too

Having broken ground in 2014, the tower is now 95% sold out. The penthouse is priced at $32.5 million; other units remaining for sale start at $6.2 million. Porsche is located in Sunny Isles - a ritzy part of the Atlantic Ocean stretch of Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale condos. The developer is Dezer Development in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.
