Engineers and testing... I live in Michigan. I can't tell you what Porsche engineers do, but GM, Ford, DC engineers all do real tests like that. That's what the proving grounds are for. GM will put 200,000+ miles on a car in 6 months, tear it down to individual pieces, measure everything, put it back togeather and run it some more. I kid you not, they have robots to drive the cars so that they can run 24 hours. They also run crappy oil in it, design parts so that they can't be installed backwards, and do a billion other tests to all of their autos.

So, yes the cars are tested in the most real life environment. That's what it's all about.
