Oh Yeah?I wouldn't bet against it, especially if independent test against their competitors reveals a performance inadequacy. In examining all the component selections of the big three, I believe McLaren engineered the most flexible platform to easily adjust power, power delivery and chassis setup. This is where I believe they have quite the advantage for any future optimizations if needed. Genius.
How did you come to this conclusion before the LaFerrari has been even released?
I'm sure the boys in Maranello would be miffed at your lack of confidence in their upcoming production process (as far as what they could improve, add or tweak on vehicle within reason)?
In addition, Porsche openly states the 918 and it's easily removable batteries have been built for future upgrades and technology, along with it's HTML 5 based customer interface? The 918 is a clean slate design as well.
And we know Porsche has been continually upgrading the car during/before it's actually release (and has the budget to do so). So who would you place your bets on regarding this aspect (Porsche, Ferrari, or McLaren)?
Interesting conclusion though.
