The countdown to the AMG GT4 is in full swing.

Suspension, brakes & steering should be based on the next gen E63 AMG S.

Engine should be the same 4L v8 found in the recently revealed AMG GT.

Should be revealed in 2018 as a 2019 model

Default Mercedes planning rival for the Porsche Panamera, Audi TT?

Mercedes-Benz developed a rival for the Porsche 911 in the form of the SLS AMG replacing AMG GT. As per a report, Mercedes could now be working on a new model that will rival Porsche’s only four-door sedan – the Panamera. The car in question could be based on the next generation E-Class, and may be launched along with the new E-Class, sometime next year.

The new model is supposedly being developed by Mercedes-AMG, and while the car’s underpinnings may be the same as the W213 E-Class, the design is expected to be considerably different.

The report also adds that the German automaker is working on a rival for the Audi TT. This model is expected to be based on the MFA2 platform that will underpin the new A-Class. The TT rival will also be developed by Mercedes-AMG and is expected to feature a more potent engine than the A-Class. Apart from a hard-top coupe, a fabric roof roadster is also said to be on the books.

Also known as the next gen CLS? Because the current one is a 4 door coupe based on the E Class.

Yes, the TT rival will be based on the A Class. It is still far from production now but in the meanwhile here are some renders;

Hard top coupe;

The GT4 will be exactly what it's name says - an AMG GT with 4 doors. Looks absolutely stunning. Love the fact that it maintains that sportster look from the AMG GT. The Panamera on the other hand looks like a botox job gone bad on the 911.

Also, the TT rival to be based on the A Class? So that'll just be a CLA45 AMG in a mini-skirt?


Cheers!
