LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive

Porsche Design Form, LaCie Function

Out of a collaboration born in 2003, a trailblazing tech firm and an iconic design house have forged another functional showpiece. The LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive welds forward-thinking technology from LaCie with immaculate style from Porsche Design.

"If you analyze the function of an object, its form often becomes obvious." – F.A. Porsche, Designer of the first Porsche 911

USB-C: Not Just New. The Future.

Thanks to USB-C, the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive works with any computer — the one you own and the one you might have on your wish list.

Charge Up & Back Up

More than just data storage. By harnessing the power of USB 3.1, the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive actually charges your USB-C laptop's battery. With a single USB-C cable, you can power your notebook and access your drive at the same time. One connection, dual benefits.

Visual Purity, Purely Useful

The LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive's unique, minimalist style reflects practical design. The all-aluminum enclosure is lightweight but also feels sturdy and substantial in your hands. Rounded corners, high-polish beveled edges, and a sandblast finish combine to form the distinctly Porsche Design contemporary style.

Create Amazing Photos. Amazingly Simple.

Easily edit, organize, store, and share your full-resolution photos from anywhere with a 2-month complimentary membership to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan1 2.

Edit photos with a powerful and easy-to-use interface on Lightroom CC. Combine images into rich, multilayered artwork with Photoshop CC.
