Unhappy Battery placement

Why do some manufacturers put the battery in the trunk
Weight distribution ! C'mon is it that critical to distribute that little bit of weight to the back on a road car ?
The thick cables leading to and from the engine bay weigh nothing ? & then the losses...
& then some smart ass copies this layout, gets it all wrong and wonders why his engine now performs ****ty
The elctronics guy inside me scratches his head in bewilderment
