The first sentence you wrote perhaps is wrong that the lat long taken from Google maps are not in WGS84 rather they are in NAD27. That is why you dont see any difference.
I solved a similar problem with homebrew rgdal by brew uninstall gdal brew install gdal --complete --with-postgresql in terminal, then installing gdal from CRAN back in R. The ogrDrivers() now displays PostgreSQL and I can successfully import PostGIS views and tables with readOGR().
