    McLaren are close to unveiling the McLaren "P13" model. This model plans to be an entry level sports car that goes against vehicles such has the Porsche 911. Notice that P"13" may not be its final name as this is a codename setup for McLaren roadcars. It is set up for a mid to late 2015 launch.

    I personally believe that it looks too much like the 12C but I have yet to see the full,complete car so i can't make many judgments.

    That is cause it's a test mule. The body is 12C but the engine and chassis are the P13.
    I don't like it will come out till 2016, they just released 650S and it's back ordered more then 6 months.

    Looks like it's going to be pretty cool.
    It's funny to see how McLaren went from an F1 team that had a dream, now to a real, sports car company, made in a factory. It's not a bad thing, but it's cool to see progression.

    So this P13 has around 450-500 hp? I like the idea of that. I'm anticipating this car will replace the 12C in the FIA GT3 fields since it wont have to be restricted like it's big brother, therefore being able to use all the power it came with when it rolled of the showroom floor.Though I'm just speculating; but the power restriction in sports car racing bothers me and sports cars in general are getting faster and faster, but you know what they say HP sells.

    i dont like how they said it will be similar to 650S. Come on Mclaren, you guys made the P1 which has a great front fascia but dont put it in different cars and call them new

    I'm entertained that a 911 is "entry-level". Maybe it's entry level if you're earning a couple hundred grand a year.

    When I think entry level sports car, I think MX5, S2000, 370Z, BRZ/GT86. If McLaren brought out a sports car for ~$50k I would buy one in a heartbeat, regardless of how many organs I would have to sell. Or just go all Breaking Bad and make meth, I wouldn't care.

    Entry level for Mclaren, not the general auto manufacturers.

    I'm a little disappointed with this news, I was hoping that would use a different carbon fiber tub and at least itwould looked a little different 12C/650S. I really wished it had a different engine it in, then just having the detune 3.8L twin turbo V8. Wonder how much it will cost to have it retune to get 650S numbers out of the engine?

    That air duct thingy in the front ruins the entire car, however I see this becoming a GT3 or GT4 car.

    Rappers will never buy a McLaren because they are too overshadowed by Ferraris and Lambos.

    I understand your disappointment, but I imagine that the business case for this would be really hard to close if they had to do significant development to change the tub and engine and still have it be priced as an "entry-level" sports car.

    Works for Porsche and Aston Martin, so why not?

    But Porsche and Aston do atleast have subtle differences, I see your point but I already really hate how the 650 looks since it looks like 2 cars bolted together.

    Its been designed in a wind tunnel using science for the most part, so it's no surprise it looks similar.

    Pretty sure that's a render by Autocar, although I'm fairly certain that there will be some similarities to the P1/650S in the front.

    The differences between this render & the P1/650S already look more obvious than what Porsche does for most 911 models & certainly more than Aston Martin.

    The same can be said for every other sports car that looks different.

    Other sports cars aren't McLarens. Checkout the Porsche line up.

    Yeah they look different and are just as wind tunnel designed. Might have lower overall drag too.

    Porsche's look pretty much the same as eachother, in much the same way McLarens look pretty much the same as eachother.

    So then one could say that the styling that looks so similar was not dictated by wind tunnels, but was intentionally made similar.

    That's because the stylists have a theme that they put on all their cars.
