Bonus Trivia Question... Which famous Boxer Engine is not really a Boxer Engine? (hint, it's not form Subaru)

The flat-12 engine used in the Ferrari Testarossa/512TR/512M comes to mind. I'm sure there are others.

 

In contrast, the famous flat-12 Porsche 917 engine was actually two 6-cylinder boxer engines connected end-to-end, with a power takeoff in the middle.
