P14 - What it looks like.

I really need something to look forward to.

What will P14 really look like. Can somebody take a crack at a render and I don't mean the hacks that work at car rags. Where are Drifter and Antar?

I know some have seen it, don't get yourself in trouble with agent 007, but share what you can. I'm desperate.

Some say, it's so good looking that it's like finding out you are the heir to the wonka factory, relocated to Ta'Ha (near tahitti), where the oompa loompas have been replaced with booth babes, and is filled with puppies, apple stores, ice cream....

Well puppies aren't really my thing and I think Apple sucks compared to what it used to be. So we are not off to a great start.

Do like plain vanilla ice cream. Though I doubt P14 will be that.

No P14. As was explained to me this part of the car is 6 inches lower than on a 650. I saw it in clay but I'm sure others have seen better evolutions of P14. This was end of March of this year.

You don't like puppies! What kind of person doesn't see a puppy and doesn't want to mush it to death!

Vanilla aint that plain. It's pretty darn exotic. It's amazing what we get used to.

Still like apple. But they do need to up their game.

Man, you're a tough one to please. Hate to have to buy you an xmas present!

I don't mind puppies. I just don't associate them with cars, unless it is a Smart car or something like that.

Ok, who's got a render. Don't make me bust out my Crayolas.

What part of the car is 6 inches lower than the 650? Surely not the roof. Must be the rear deck-lid?

The new Ford GT appears to have a lower roofline than the P11. Perhaps not 6 inches though.

Can we expect to see P14 in Geneva or is that too early since they would have to finish the production of the 675LT Spider? I hope they keep the McLaren 'DNA' styling and not completely start with a clean sheet.

I doubt those in the know would risk being put on McLaren's naughty list, but it would be great if I was wrong.
