Sad news for fans of the upcoming Noble M14 (pictured) surfaced this week. It appears the company won't be building the new, low-slung supercar it showed in concept form last year. Psych! It's cutting the M14 and skipping right along to the M15, a car reportely with a similar shape, but new underpinnings and a rumored Mercedes SLR McLaren's AMG V8 set midship. Officals from Noble โ€” known in the UK for its stunning track-day cars โ€” say the company is designing the M15 to have road manners befitting today's supercars like the Ferrari F430, but will keep with the company's tradition of simplicity. That means no traction nanny or AWD. No US version, either. Psych.
