That is REALLY Lazy, think just about every car is wrong!

This is a Short wheel base Sport quattro, so wrong..

Thats a Ferrari 512TR, not a Testarossa..

Dempsey drove the earlier R107 model, which incidently was hardly used, so an Escort Cabriolet or Mini would have been a better choice..

As for Juliet Bravo, I just have memories of lots of Maestros being thrashed around the lanes..

Think I'm right in saying that the Ferrari was actually a dressed-up 'Vette.

from Wiki:Two automobiles became very notable during Miami Vice; the Ferrari Daytona and Testarossa. During the first two seasons and two episodes of the third season, Detective Sonny Crockett drove a black 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder 365 GTS/4. This car though wasn't truly a Ferrari, it was a kit replica based on a 1980 Chevrolet Corvette C3 chassis that had been modified with Ferrari-designed body panels by specialty car manufacturer McBurnie. The car became famous, at the expense of angering Enzo Ferrari who was growing furious at these copycats who were taking his name and styling. Enzo filed a lawsuit asking McBurnie and four others to stop producing and selling Ferrari replicas. As a result, the vehicle lasted until season 3, when it was blown to pieces, the fake Ferrari's were removed from the show, and Ferrari offered two brand new, free, 1986 Testarossas. While Miami Vice did receive two new Ferrari's, it also used a third Testarossa, which was the stunt car. Carl Roberts who worked on the Daytona kitcars offered to build the stunt car. Roberts decided to use 1972 De Tomaso Pantera, which had the same base as the Testarossa and thus was perfect for the body pieces. The vehicle was modified to with stand the daily usage on the set and was used up until the series ended.
