Seeing a car design on electronic is not a fresh perspective anymore. Started by Acer with their Ferrari design, followed up by ASUS with their Lamborgini design, and more from others. The latest car design for computer peripheral is made by LaCie, which also sporting amazing luxurious car design from Porsche.
They are the new storage solutions called Porsche Design Desktop P9230 and Porsche Design Mobile P9220 hard drives. Just like the fast moving car, both hard drives have been equipped with the best and fastest USB 3.0 connectivity which featuring superspeed transfer rate with up to 6Gbps data could be transferred on each second. However, there is no mention on the exact transfer rate of both Porsche Design Desktop P9230 and Mobile P9220 in MB/s yet.
What’s cool is the sleek aluminum casing and design that resembled the luxuriousness of the sport car, but as far as sport car design, this LaCie Porsche Design hard drives didn’t quite there yet.
Storage-wise, LaCie Porsche Design Desktop P9230 and Mobile P9220 is featuring different storage sizes. For the mobile version, LaCie made it available in both 500GB and 1TB, while the Desktop version is larger at 1TB and 2TB. Not all of them are available yet, but I saw Amazon has listed the LaCie Porsche Design Mobile 500GB for $104.76 and LaCie Porsche Design Desktop 1TB for $115.21. There is also a 750GB model that will be sold exclusively in Porsche Design store, but we have no idea if this model will be priced higher then other series or not.
