Yes, we can find similarities. But blatant ripoff is different. The rear quarters of the AMG GT is literally a copy/paste as far as M-B could push it, from the 911. My two friends drew the same exact...

Yeah, maybe McLaren. But it at least had a more specific look. The AMG GT doesn't really look like a "Benz" except for the grille, and imo they didn't do that by way of innovating a new design theme,...

I love it and hate it.

Hate: Because it's reprehensible and shameful for the oldest car company in the world to so shamelessly and desperately rip off an iconic 911 rear...

Yeah that's kinda what I mean. It's like, even with the choices, I can't seem to find it "just right".

For example: The 4GC exists and the interior is a very slightly dressed up 3 (a compromise in...

Ironically, the more choices within the lineup, the more confusing the choice to me. Before, it was really simple: Small and sporty. Midsize and sporty but with higher focus on luxury. Then large and...

Hah.Yeah, the 989 is obviously the blueprint that they stuck with for the Panamera (i.e in keeping with the 911 theme).

To me, it really feels large and wide while driving. However, the width I've been surprised to find out is actually pretty "narrow" compared to some newer cars. Parking spots, etc. I think it fits...

I'll say that I long for the car to handle sharper far more than I do power. Therefore I couldn't imagine choosing more weight especially over the front axle. The power delivery of the 535i imo is a...

The general theme of it carries over from the SLS which is a Gullwing throwback. But the tweaks and modern elements of it, namely the greenhouse and rear reek of modern Jaguar and Porsche.
