is the 650S the P15?

We know McLaren was supposed to add the P15 to their lineup to slot between the 12C and the P1.

From Autoblog on Jan 26th 2014:

Flewitt admitted that the P15 is still "quite a long way off." Like all of McLaren's current production cars, the P15 would use a tuned version of its 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 mounted in the middle of the company's MonoCell carbon fiber monocoque. Flewitt did not say whether the car would use hybrid power like the P1, stick with the 12C's turbos or otherwise. The exact specifications are still being decided.
They say pricing for the P15 should come in at $660,000.

But then TTAC ran this on Feb 13th 2014:

But then we heard it was going to be an Aventador rival with the name P15″. It now appears that it will be an Aventador rival with the name 650S
So what gives? Is the P15 the 650S, or will there still be a P15 in between the 650S and the P1?

I don't think so.

Mclaren apparently wants to release a new model every 12 months so the P15 will likely come later.

But at the same time the P15 could have been the codename for the 650s.

How well does the 650s compare with the Adventador?

The 650S is a refreshed 12C, so it slots under 'P11'. From 2016 onwards, McLaren will start releasing 2 new models or variants to the market every year.
