Mercedes-AMG recently introduced the GT 4-door coupe and now the brand may be looking at adding a small model to its lineup that will sell alongside the GT family. Mercedes-AMG boss, Tobias Moers recently hinted at the addition of more stand-alone AMG models, including a smaller sports car.
Autocar had a chance to question Moers about the future of the AMG brand. While the brand is looking to add more unique models that aren’t based on existing Mercedes-Benz models, there’s one thing that won’t be introduced – a stand-alone AMG SUV. “We already have many excellent AMG SUV derivatives and it makes no sense to steal from them just so we can make our own car.”
Moers didn’t provide too many strong hints at what its next model might be, but there is some indication that it could be a smaller sports car to rival the Porsche Boxster and Cayman. With the GT Coupe going after the 911 and the GT 4-Door coupe set to rival the Panamera, it makes sense that Mercedes-AMG looks at a smaller sports car to target the Boxster/Cayman. This could also act as a successor to the often ignored Mercedes-Benz SLC.
