RE: Porsche Turbo S (no Audi content)

Back in late 1995, I saw two heavily disguised Boxsters driving down
Virginia street in Reno, probably to the PCNA building on Liberty
street.  That was rather interesting, as I'd never seen a disguised
prototype car like that before.  I've seen Mercedes engineers in death
valley doing hot weather testing.  It's amazing seeing all the different
telemetry systems they stuff into those cars, for their warm weather
testing data.
