McLaren has a plan called Track 22 including a bunch of goals the supercar company wants to see completed by the year 2022. One of those goals happens to be deciding whether or not the successor to the McLaren P1 is going to be fully-electric. Hope you’re cool with that.
Over the next six years, it looks as if McLaren will “go green” in a number of ways—environmentally and in investing.

iPerformance is the new name BMW will be adding to its ever-lengthening model names, as Apple hasn’t quite made us tired of iStuff and iThings yet.
