Tesla has a lot to worry about with questions about the range of its electric Model S, so it logs the telemetry data for every press drive. Ferrari has cleverer way of testing how media drives go.
As you know, Tesla and the New York Times are fighting it out over a NYT review of the Model S, where a Times unsuccessfully attempted to drive from Washington DC to Boston along Tesla's highway lined with powerdicks.
Following the row between Tesla and the New York Times, Ferrari put out this tweet.
To all journos who asked, Ferrari does NOT fit dataloggers to press cars. No need. Tyres tell us all we need to know. twitter.com/FNEPR/status/3…— Jason Harris (@FNEPR) February 14, 2013
We applaud Ferrari here, but then Ferrari doesn't have to dispute the results of the tests because they rig them, which is a lesson Tesla needs to learn.
