Achieving velocity that has never before been possible in a McLaren was implied, simply by the name “Speedtail.” But for the latest and most exclusive member of the road-going Ultimate Series, it’s about much more than that.
In the hyper-competitive industry of performance cars, superlatives are short-lived. When brands unleash a new supercar claiming to be the fastest in its rich history, it’s hardly a feat – it’s just striving to keep up before it’s soon replaced at the top again.

The original Porsche Panamera came with very few expectations. It was the genesis of Porsche’s future of luxury, a deviation from performance-first values and an appeal to a new audience originally drawn in by the Cayenne SUV.
It didn’t greatly appeal to the purists, but the purists didn’t need it. Families with the affinity for the quality and style of Porsche saw it as right up their alley and influenced the Panamera to become a staple for the modern-day Porsche lineup. Its available all-wheel drive capabilities, comfort and size as well as ample power when wanted made it the premier luxury sedan option for a big crowd in just a few short years.
The Geneva Motor Show is not really the place to come with subtle yearly refreshes and facelifts, it demands the newest and very best each brand has to offer. Porsche and McLaren had these projects in the works for years, but 2017 was the culmination and assembly of these ideas in one place.
Performance cars are climbing and climbing to what seems like an inevitable plateau, which makes the ridiculous numbers associated with them seem less and less impressive each year. But if there’s any battlefield to truly fight for the industry’s attention, it’s the Geneva Motor Show.
The Swiss show centralizes the top European brands to sculpt the landscape of the next generation of cars. That next generation, for McLaren and Porsche, aims to stave off and elevate that plateau for at least a handful of years.
The downsizing and implementation of turbochargers in sports cars is a compromise that is inevitable for the industry. Porsche doesn’t necessarily see it as a compromise, but instead as a new direction for progress.
