Report: McLaren planning five new models over five years

by Damon Lavrinc (RSS feed) on Sep 2nd 2010 at 8:56AM

When we sat down with Antony Sheriff in Pebble Beach, we bombarded McLaren's managing director with a raft of questions about the MP4-12C. Properly geeked on the Ferrari 458-fighter, we asked what else McLaren had planned in its quest to become a sort of full-line sports car purveyor.

Naturally, Sheriff remained mum, but we know based on earlier reports that three core models are in the works, with the MP4-12C out first, followed by either a F1 supercar successor or a Porsche 911 competitor.

Now word comes that McLaren is planning to release one new product each year for the next five years, and it's likely to be a mix of MP4-12C variants and all-new models. It's safe to assume that wealthy privateers are champing at the bit for a club-racing version of the 12C and that would mean a dedicated racer (can you say long-tail?) couldn't be too far off.

I've heard of at least two more than the MP4-12C, the MP9 and MP11.
