McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt has revealed some new details about the P1 successor.

Speaking to Edmunds, Flewitt said the 2017 P15 won't be a replacement for the P1 because its successor "needs to be a technical step-change." He declined to go into specifics but said another P1 "could be 10 years away."

On the topic of the future, Flewitt said McLaren will be building 4,000-6,000 cars annually by 2024 and they will all be hybrids even if they use a "basic form of hybridization." While that's still a ways off, the executive said they will likely offer two or three mainstream models as well as specialty vehicles such as a P1 successor or an electric vehicle.

In related news, the publication is reporting the 2015 P13 will feature a detuned version of the company's twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine. They declined to give specifications but said the model will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately four seconds and have a top speed of 298 km/h (185 mph).
