At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren unveiled the latest addition to its lineup: the new P1 supercar . Now, the company announced plans to unveil a new sports car each year. The first to arrive will be a new sports car placed under the current MP4-12C . Codenamed "P13," this new sports car will be a little bit more practical than the 12C; "practical" meaning it will have a trunk, of course.
The new supercar will aim at models like Porsche 911 and will be priced a little under $200k. While no other details have been revealed, it is rumored that the upcoming P13 will be powered by a de-tuned version of the twin-turbo V-8 engine used in the 12C. We expect an output somewhere in the 500-horsepower area. On the outside, the P13 will feature design elements seen on the recently unveiled P1.
The new P13 will arrive in 2014, and McLaren hopes to to sell around 2,000 to 2,500 units per year globally.

TopSpeed Rendering - 2015 McLaren P13
The above rendering was fairly straightforward to create, as all of the reports point to the P13 being essentially a downsized 12C with a few cues from the P1. Nearly all of the P1 cues are up front, including the nose and headlights. We’ll continue to update this rendering as more information comes forward.
The 2014 911 Turbo S comes with a 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine that pumps out 560 horsepower and launches the sports car to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds on its way to a 197 mph top speed. We don’t expect any more revisions on the 911 Turbo S between now and the release of the P13.
