“My daily drive is a 911 Turbo convertible, which is a great Miami car,” says Dezer. “But in traffic…sometimes you need to use alternative methods.”

With his Panther, Dezer can exit the highway and drive straight into nearby Biscayne Bay, where a quick gear shift and the push of a button transforms the car into a full-fledged speedboat. In the water, it can go as fast as 45 miles per hour.

“I definitely think that next time James Bond needs to escape from a villain, this is the machine,” says Dezer.

And though escaping an evil villain may be no problem for the Panther, there are sometimes complications. While filming “Secret Lives of the Super Rich,” the cops showed up after a concerned onlooker dialed 9-1-1 to report a car had driven into the bay.
