Is A McLaren 650S Successor Coming In 2017?

Despite the 650S been launched in 2014, it could be replaced as early next year as part of McLaren’s Track 22 plan announced in March.

Code-named P14, the supercar could make its debut as early as the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, as Autocar writes, but it won’t use the brand’s next-gen carbon fiber tub and powertrain, as it is expected to stick with the current MonoCell tub and existing twin-turbo V8 in an upgraded form, with output increased over the current car’s 650 PS (641 HP) and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque.

Visually, it’s been described as a “big leap” for the company and it’s expected to benefit from radical active aerodynamics. According to the brand’s design director, Frank Stephenson, the department has worked closely together with engineers to make sure that its look is feasible: “It’s not about us creating something beautiful and then throwing it at the engineers and saying ‘build it’ and them saying ‘we can’t’“.

McLaren’s new Super Series model is believed to introduce the company’s next design language, which will eventually be adopted across the range, and its cabin will be significantly different, with a more intuitive layout.

A replacement for the P1 isn’t part of Track 22 plan, but the Ultimate Series will get a zero-emissions hypercar in the near future.

We’ve never said every Ultimate Series McLaren has to cost upwards of $1 million – just that it will be positioned above the Sports Series and offer a clear performance step“, said a company spokesperson.
