My thoughts are probably worthless on this subject, since SUVs interest me not in the slightest, and one of the major attractions for me to McLaren is that they don't make one. Having said that, I've always thought the Cayenne succeeded precisely because it was/is a 911 in SUV form, it looked similar when it first appeared, it was clearly performance-focused rather than being particularly off-road-capable, and it even followed the variant naming (S, Turbo, Turbo S, etc). If McLaren make one that's capable of running Paris-Dakar or Baja, what exactly is the target market? Surely that puts them in the cannibal camp, selling to McLaren owners who don't track their current cars? In one aspect, I think they have it a bit easier than Porsche, since there's no current McLaren with 4 seats, but if it were me making the decision, and my feet were being held to the fire to force me to make an SUV, I'd be following the Purosangue formula and making something that looked more like a GT or crossover, so it looks like a McLaren but with 4 seats, and going after the current crop of customers who currently have a 2 seat McLaren plus a DBX or Urus. The other big questions are where will the engine sit, and will it be hybrid or full electric?
