Trivia

  • The name is probably a reference to Gaspar de Portolà, a Spanish explore from Catalonia that was governor of California in the 18th Century.
  • In San Francisco there is a Portola Drive, also named after Gaspar de Portolà.
  • A Truffade Adder, based on the Bugatti Veyron, can sometimes be found parked against the sidewalk outside Sessanta Nove. If not there, simply drive around the block or so, drive back and it should be parked there. The Adder is a reference to the Bugatti Veyron parked on the same spot on real-life Rodeo Drive.
  • The De Santa Mansion is located on the far end of Portola Drive, by West Eclipse Boulevard.
  • Portola Drive's horse statue, entitled Faswan (top right), is based on the statue 'Torso'. It is stated to be sculptured by Robert Cholla, a parody of the real-life statue's sculptor, Robert Graham.
  • According to the Vinewood Star Tours, a lot of Vinewood movies where filmed in Portola Drive, most of then horrible ones. One of this movies was "Shoe Whore", a movie from 2005, that took the credit of reverting woman rights 50 years in history.
