    • Autoevolution made up 'cease and desist' Ferrari 456 rotary engine swap story

      Yes, the Ferrari 456 with a rotary engine swap is real. Yes, the owner ditched the V12. What is not real is that Ferrari got their lawyers involved. It seems Autoevolution.com decided to add that portion in for clicks and the internet ran away with it.


      BoostAddict bought into it too and ran the story. The car and work involved are cool so that part is correct but Ferrari did not make any legal threats. That is something we want to clarify.

      How do you stop this sort of click-bait false reporting? You fire the person who wrote it. In this case, Elena Gorgon: https://www.autoevolution.com/editor.../elena-gorgan/

      Elena Gorgan has been writing for a living since 2006. A double major in English and Spanish, with an M.D. in European Studies, she stumbled into online media by accident, after a 2-year trial run as a teaching assistant at the university she had graduated from.

      As a journalist, she has covered a wide range of topics, from cars, celebrity culture, film, music, health & nutrition, and techy stuff, but she also did “behind the scenes” work as proofreader and editor-in-chief on several projects.
      Elena should find another job and Autoevolution should set the story straight.
