Mercedes-AMG plans 718 Cayman rival

Details About The Mercedes-AMG Cayman Rival Emerge

Although it is not yet signed off for production, word is that Mercedes-Benz's management board is considering plans that would enable the new AMG sports auto to share selected components with the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz compact models, including the recently introduced fourth- generation A-Class.

According to Autocar, a new compact sports auto that would be designed and marketed as a standalone Mercedes-AMG product, is under consideration and now in conceptual stage.

AMG's baby GT is still in its early days of development, so much so that the company hasn't even settled on what form the vehicle will take. Intriguingly, Autocar also claims the car's styling will have "clear links" to the upcoming Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar, so it could look quite radical.

Following that report and the firing of Comey by Trump, the Department of Justice Inspector General launched an investigation. Ryan said the House would "do what we need to do to protect this branch of government" and that he backed Goodlatte.

According to Autocar, the new sports auto is still in the early stages of development but that Tobias Moers, head of AMG, has been hinting about it since earlier this year. The unit would provide up to 400 bhp in addition to the output of its electric motors, and that would put it within the performance levels of the Porsche 718 Cayman.

By comparison, today's 718 Cayman is sold with a base turbo 2.0-litre flat four developing 300bhp and a turbo 2.5-litre flat four with 350bhp in standard guise and 365bhp in the existing top-of- the-line Cayman GTS. Another configuration it offers includes a 2.5-liter inline-four engine with 350 bhp. A mid-engine layout is now in the discussion, but AMG also hasn't ruled out a more conventional front-engine layout. From there, two body styles will be made available. Then, a few months ago, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe was revealed.
