Online Car Dealership Carvana has recently submitted plans to build a 20-car vending machine for cars.

You may not have heard of Carvana, but you’ve heard of the vending machine. Ahh, the vending machine. One of the many great man-made marvels of the world. The vending machine has always been there for us when we needed it. Just think about it for a second. The vending machine has kept many a college student alive and focused when pulling an all-nighter during finals.

It’s there for you at the local bowling alley, stocked full of delicious guilty pleasures. For writers that travel to different car events each year, the hotel vending machines have fueled many of our late night writing sessions as well. And don’t get me started on Best Buy’s electronic vending machine at the airport!

I know I don’t need a new set of Beats headphones, but that newly released color is just calling my name behind that shiny glass…

So why not a car vending machine? Well, this idea is a lot closer than you think.

Carvana, an online car dealership based out of Phoenix, Arizona has just submitted their proposal to build a brand new, 8-story,  8,200-square-foot vending machine designed to hold up to 20 cars that will automatically dispense your car.

Car buyers are given a giant token to insert into the dispenser, and right before your eyes, the car rolls off the line. The catch? Well, for starters, you have to purchase the car online before they let you push that button. It is also important to point out Carvana only sells certified pre-owned cars.

Founded in 2013, Carvana specializes in selling cars 100% online, meaning there is no physical showroom for the customer before purchase. The company does feature all of its vehicles with 360-degree online tours for prospected buyers.

Carvana has been offering a similar, smaller service to pick up your car since last year, but now they are looking at providing customers with a bigger, more enjoyable experience picking up your new vehicle at different locations across the country.

Here is the official Carvana Vending Machine video on YouTube:

I know one thing; if they ever put one of the Fast and Furious movie cars in one of those vending machine slots, I would have a hard time not pushing that button! For more information on Carvana’s upcoming plans, visit the official Website
