Hot on the heels of unveiling the Mercedes-AMG GT four-door range at the Geneva Motor Show, AMG boss Tobias Moers has revealed that another bespoke AMG model is already being considered.
Unlike all AMG models from the past, the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car and four door are the only two not to be based around standard Mercedes-Benz models (excluding the Project One). According to Moers, they might not be the last.
The performance brand has yet to indicate what form a possible new model could take but it’s entirely possible it could be a small sports car, potentially one to rival the Porsche Boxster and Cayman, Autocar asserts.

The closest thing Mercedes buyers can get to a Cayman/Boxster alternative is the AMG SLC 43. Despite being impressively fast and enjoyable to drive, it lacks the inherent balance of the mid-engine Porsche siblings and simply isn’t as desirable.
While Moers failed to say whether or not such a vehicle is on the cards, he did rule out the possibility of a bespoke AMG SUV.
“There was a clear space in the market for the four-door GT but 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,” he said.
