The AMG GT Coupe and Roadster Canceled, So What Comes Next?
Will Mercedes offer a coupe version of the upcoming SL Roadster, or is the GT officially dead forever?
A new report claims that the Mercedes AMG GT Coupe and Convertible are now canceled, with the order books closed and production ending in December.
Since Black Series models usually come at the end of a product’s life cycle, the launch of the AMG GT Black Series told us that the end was near, so this isn’t a complete surprise.
What is surprising, however, is that we’re not sure what’s happening now that the GT -- with exception of the 4-Door – is officially out of production.
The new Mercedes SL Roadster will, as planned, take the place of the GT Roadster, and it should launch with the next two months, but the GT Coupe was supposed to receive a facelift and carry on with a new hybrid powertrain.
Does this mean there will never be another AMG GT Coupe? Well, it’s actually quite possible as there’s absolutely no word of any successor coming anytime soon.
Mercedes has recently committed to thinning out its two-door lineup, with the C-Class Coupe and Convertible merging with the E-Class Coupe and Convertible to create the “CLE”
With that said, it’s also hard to believe that Mercedes would spend so much money to develop the new SL Roadster for that to be the only model, so an SL Coupe could land sometime in the future.
Since the SL is reportedly a full-one AMG project anyway, it would also make financial sense, but if this is the case, it’s going to be a while before we see it since there hasn’t been a single spy shot of any new Mercedes coupe.
