Ferrari F150 Announcement on Instagram Sounds Fishier than Cod…

|

We need not tell you that you should be extra careful with what you read on the internet these days, as it's easy to fall victim to harmless pranks, sloppy journalism, or bloggers simply churning out one piece after the other like they're working in a Chinese bubblegum factory without ever questioning the source they found the information on.

Today, the net is abuzz with a posting on Instagram from a page called "oficialfFerrari" (did you notice the "f" missing from the name?) with a teaser showing the replacement for the Enzo, codenamed F150 (which we've already seen), and the following oddly worded statement:

"Geneva Motor Show I am coming to take your hearts away. The Most Powerful HyperFerrari on its way to take your breath away, a hypercar which can eclipse any competition. Formula1 technology direct nherited into this masterpiece, a car which can turn into a cornor as quick as a Formula1 car, a car packed with downforce as a real Formula1 car. #destroythecompetition #forzaferrari"

Leaving aside the fact that, the statement itself doesn't really make any sense (i.e.: "turn into a cornor as quick as a Formula1 car", we still haven't been able to confirm if the Instagram page is genuine or fake.

Regardless, we can tell you that about an hour ago, Ferrari released this announcement on its official FaceBook page:

"A work group of F1 and GT engineers concentrated over more than three years on the planning and the development of extreme performance with limited weight. The waiting is almost over and the Enzo's successor, the new Limited Special Series car, is ready to be unveiled! Discover more"

Is Ford gonna try to sue them again like a bunch of noobs?
