Mclaren Saved from Bankruptcy

Sad it had to come this far... but I guess in today's world if you are not one of the big players or owned by someone big... trouble can start fast-

after Ron Dennis things were not going well at all.. actually still.. yes they added more models to the McLaren line up but actually in the end they are more or less the same car.. even almost the very same engine.. CEO probably wanted more models but there should be different layouts or styles as well.. manufacturing and selling almost the same different cars adds cost but the result is the same.. like having different colors on the same car but very costly.. why not making a 4 seater for example.. there is a demand.. like initial Ferrari days.. Ferrari was selling road cars to finance the racing team.. with McLaren they dont feel connected.. especially thanks to Zak Brown..

McLaren has a racing heritage why not positioning the brand like Ferrari did many years ago.. and in short they need to build less cars really.. less is more in such tier of cars.. in recent years i heard that factory was sending cars to dealers even if they dont ask to.. its funny..

and of course definitely needs a better built quality..
having excessive units + poor built quality + causing crazy depreciation = was a bankrupt formula already..
