Google Streetview Catches Porsche Engineers

What do you do if you’re high altitude testing and you see one of Google’s Streetview cars coming? “Hans, run for the tarps!”

The boys at Garage419 were doing a little research on Colorado’s Mount Evans Scenic Byway using Google’s Streetview and something interesting caught their attention. The Mount Evans Scenic Byway climbs 7,000 feet in just 28 miles reaching a 14,264-foot summit, making this the highest paved road in America and one frequently used by manufacturers for high-altitude testing. It’s obvious now why they were checking it out.

To their surprise, a couple of next-gen Porsche Caymans, Boxsters and a face-lifted 911 Turbo and Targa were spotted doing a little high altitude testing.
