Now that Mercedes is going it alone with its next supercar, McLaren has room to develop multiple cars for itself.

Accompanying the P11 will be a new coupe placed below the P11 in the lineup. The car will be smaller then the 500 hp P11, which should make it a direct competitor to the Audi R8 and Porsche 911. The rumored 450 hp 6.2-liter Mercedes-based engine, 0 to 60 time of 4.5 seconds, and £80,000 price (about $115,000 at the current rates) put this baby McLaren squarely in between the standard Porsche 911 and 911 Turbo.

Don’t get too excited about this one just yet. The P11 will appear first in 2010, and if all goes well, this smaller sports car will appear two years later.
