Mercedes weren't joking when they said they wanted to copy the 911 with the AMG GT.
Ever since the AMG GT was introduced back in 2014 as a spiritual successor the SLS, Mercedes hasn't tiptoed around the fact it was developed to compete directly against the Porsche 911. Aside from being one of the best (if not the best) sports car around, the 911 is known for having one of the most confusing model lineups in the automotive industry.
There are over 24 variants of the 911 over multiple body styles and Mercedes, keen to compete with Porsche in every conceivable way, wanted to make the AMG GT lineup just as confusing. We recently had the chance to drive a 2019 AMG GT C Roadster (video below) and thought it might make a good opportunity to explain the complicated GT lineup.
