Default Porsche Panamera delivered to 94th Floor of Shanghai World Financial Center

Click the image to open in full size.

We all hate moving. I can still remember moving a huge metal desk up two flights of stairs when I was living in an apartment. Ever opening from doors to hallways seen to shrink and all of your furniture seems to be twice the size you remembered. What would you do if you were hired to get a Porsche Panamera up to the 94th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center? I would be thinking that we have an excellent main floor space available that would accommodate the car and event just wonderfully. This team built a special rig that was able to push and tilt the car upright into a freight elevator. They were successful in pulling it off but I wonder if the car is fine after standing vertical for that long, would oil not leak into places that it should not be?

That's, uh, interesting... I would think it best to drain all fluids before attempting an upright.

the only problem you might have is with fuel but now a days everything is either under vacume or pressure so it has to be air tight anyway.

More importantly, what sort of private track does this guy have on the 94th floor that would make all this effort worth it?



Edit: got the floor wrong...

I hope theres a track or something up there. because that's just crazy to have it just to look at it...

Maybe it's like another really expensive paperweight we all know??

I would be interested in seeing them get it down. Base jump it from the 94th floor.
