In its quest to organise all the world’s information, Google (GOOG) has made enemies in the movie-making, publishing, TV, radio, advertising and tech industries.
Now you can add carmakers — specifically Germany’s Porsche — to the list. A Google Street View car photographing Colorado’s high altitude Mount Evans Road caught Porsche testing previously unknown-to-the-public new versions of its Cayman, Boxster, a 911 Turbo and Targa models.
In the photos, you can see Porsche employees desperately trying to throw a tarp over their cars so that Google’s camera’s can’t see them.
Hopefully it’s the last time in 2009 we’ll see a car company scrambling for a tarp to save it.
(Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
