2018 Mercedes-AMG GT Copies Porsche 911 Game Plan

By  | 

If you can’t beat them, join them but only until you found a way to beat them. This is the strategy that is being practiced by Mercedes-AMG in the luxury performance market and it involves following the footsteps of Porsche.

Yes, you read that right. The recent Detroit Auto Show saw the three-pointed star unveiling the GT Facelift and amazingly, it is a lot like the Porsche 911. Mercedes designed the GT with plenty of curves to offer a nice balance between sportiness and style.

The design is not the only department which is being replicated by Mercedes-AMG. The carmaker is also following the 911’s game plan in market approach.

As how it was announced in Detroit, Mercedes-AMG will be rolling out as many variants of the GT and offer as much update as possible early on. Once done, Mercedes will start launching the special variants of the GT.

This is an approach that has been practiced by Porsche for a long time now and it has served them well. The fact that a mega carmaker like Mercedes is also adopting is certainly flattering for Porsche.
