<p>Sydney, Australia (August 8th, 2003) - LaCie, a leading producer of storage devices, today introduced an impressive array of storage peripherals designed by the legendary team at Porsche Design GmbH.

Coupling LaCie’s history of excellence in its industry with Porsche Design, a world leader in timeless design and performance, this new family of drives features highly-defined style and superior performance.</p>
<p>Keeping with the design philosophy of F.A. Porsche, “A formally coherent object needs neither ornamentation nor enhancement. Its neat, clean lines suffice; they should be invariably understated, obvious and never stray from the product’s spirit and purpose.” The LaCie Hard Drives Design by F.A. Porsche reveals a chic one-of-a-kind style that only the famous Porsche Design team can deliver. Its clean lines and mirrored finish add a contemporary element to your desktop or workstation.</p>
<p>“By teaming up with Porsche Design, we are able to bring consumers products that fit their lifestyle,” said Philippe Spruch, LaCie World Wide CEO. “This new offering combines the F.A. Porsche tradition of functional design and LaCie’s tradition for state-of-the-art technology to create truly unique products.”</p>
<p>This new offering from LaCie continues to give consumers the latest in technological innovations that our customers have come to expect. We have precision-engineered our drives to perform like a race car. Not only that, but we have made the process of setting up your drive as simple as four easy steps. You will be up and running in 0 to 60 seconds.</p>
<p>LaCie’s new design will house a complete line of hard drives, ranging in capacity from 40GB to 250GB for your PC or Mac via USB 2.0 or FireWire® port. LaCie’s CD-RW and DVD+/-RW drives will also be available in this unique design, featuring a mirrored door that opens.</p>
