All Post-Mod Cons 2 -- The $ 1 million Porsche Design Advent Calendar! (Jesus Is The Reason For The Season)

     What do you buy  the person who has everything? A $1m Porsche Design Advent Calendar tower of course!

     There are just 5 Porsche Design calendars on sale worldwide (one in each continent), and each measures 1.75 metres high, is made of brushed aluminium and possesses that sleek exterior from which Porsche have become best known for.

     The calendar contains 24 windows containing a range of the most exclusive gifts available to mankind, one for each of the days leading up to Christmas Day. Some of the gifts include a Porsche Design P’6910 Indicator  watch in rosé gold, an individual customisable Porsche Design kitchen and a custom-made motor yacht by Porsche’s studio in Austria. Obviously the kitchen and the 8.5 metre-long yacht would struggle to fit inside the windows, so they are represented by illuminated aluminium plaques. Other surprises include 18 carat gold sunglasses, a pair of diamond cufflinks and a pair of Adidas Bounce trainers – one of the most expensive trainers money can buy at $480 per pair.

     This exclusive creation is available at Harrods in London and retails at $1 million.

 Porsche Design Water Pipe Not Included


  1. Wow, this is fascinating. Nothing like exclusivity. I had to google the bounce shoes, but I only found a cheaper version at Zappos. I wanted to hear the virtues of a $480 pair of athletic shoes. Maybe they would guarantee injury-free training, right? A superior bounce . . .
    There was a book I read as a child about these amazing bouncing shoes. I think it was by the man who wrote James and the Giant Peach, but I'm not sure . . .
    And what's with the water pipe?

  2. Hi Nin. If you check out the range of Porsche Designs, you'll be impressed with their variety and, I'm sure, quality, despite their occasional weirdness and the unsettling nature of devising a $1 million Advent calendar. Since we'll be purchasing Jane's 2011 Advent calendar tomorrow, this caught my eye. $480 bounce shoes. Caroline gets annoyed when I order a new pair of Jack Purcell tennis shoes from Zappos, where the prices are fair and favorable, I think. Curtis
