    A long rant by Chris Harris of EVO Magazine about how Ferrari rigs all their journalist drive tests (basically they tune all their cars specifically for that test; sometimes they even bring two cars: one tuned for straight-line testing and one for handling).!5760248/how-ferrari-spins

    I don't see how that is acceptable in auto journalism and wonder what other companies do the same thing (from some comments, some people say Porsche does the same thing in the US).

    I wonder if Nissan did it to the LEAF they gave Car and Driver (it was them that clocked 0-60 in 7.something wasn't it?)
