As released by to the Detroit Free Press, the prototype Google cars witnessed last may are now "being developed and assembled at a Roush facility" and are claimed to be "more refined" versions of the prototypes that were previously on offer.

After being built, these cars will be sent to California for testing, seeing the test fleet measure an impressive 150 cars in total. With a few hundred team members apparently working on this project split between Californian and Detroit offices, Google show, once again, that they don't mess around when it comes to technology.

It's nice to see that Google are keeping this as an all-American project, as pointed out by Gizmodo.
