People With Too Much Money
During the 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney caught criticism for his proposed California home with parking on an upper floor, requiring a car elevator. Much more elaborate elevator access will be available in the new Porsche Design Tower near Miami (opening in 2016, it's already 80 percent sold out, according to a December report by Slate.com). The 132 oceanside units (4,300-17,000 sq. ft.; $5.3-$32.5 million) include glass-walled, elevator-accessed spaces for two or four cars (for those who'd rather admire their Bugattis and Maseratis than the Atlantic Ocean).
