4 Door AMG GT ? AMG GT4

There were rumours of a sedan SLS AMG a few years ago but AMG squashed those and said it wasn't happening.

The AMG GT4 (4 door) had apparently been in talks since 2015 (Haven't heard about it until now), but AMG hasn't commented on it at all. That could be a good thing or a bad thing.

Obviously with no comments, there's only speculation on specs and that doesn't really matter to me as there is no concrete evidence.

But.. If there were going to be a sedan version of the AMG GT, would you be interested ?

That would be a winning strategy since vehicles that achieve sort of the same thing are selling well. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is one example although it might be bigger than a 4 door AMG GT.

It can be said going that route with the AMG GT would be a waste of money since they have a number of sporty 4 doors, it just depends on how much money AMG wants to throw and risk at this.



If it doesn't happen i'm liking to go with a C63s AMG with some Brabus goodies...and of course have the AMG GT next to it.

From what I've read, the AMG GT4 is pretty much set to rival the Porsche Panamera.

The Panamera can come with the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that produces 550hp. The AMG GT4 wouldn't really need to come in to terms with the GT R tuned engine at 577hp, but use the GT C variant with 549hp ?

That's if it even comes to market since last I checked the CLS is what they always had going in the segment the Panamera sits in but given how long the CLS has been in production for, just maybe this is its replacement, get rid of an aging platform and better monetize a new platform.

Majority of the time, it's great for a refresher in the model lineup. Bring something new to the table and get everyone up re-interested in the segment.
