At last week's New York Auto Show we took a few minutes to speak with McLaren Automotive's director for North America, Anthony Joseph. Looking at the recent past, the present, and the near future--despite the complete lack of the new P1 at the New York Auto Show--of the brand.

The P1 has soaked up most of the McLaren-branded spotlight of late, for obvious reasons. But there are other things going on at the brand that are, for those of us not among the 375 richest car buyers in the world, far more relevant.

Things like a possible one-make racing series a la the Lamborghini Super Trofeo or Ferrari Challenge series. Things like the next production car from the brand, priced to compete with the Porsche 911 Turbo with performance to match.

Good things. Check it out.
