The AMG GT C Coupe is definitely happening, according to Moers. He told me it will be presented next year, although I couldn't pin him down on timing. "We're going to move with that," he said with a laugh.
Moers's comments also confirm the leaked product roadmap we told you about back in July, which listed the GT C coupe as coming in late 2017. Remember, the GT C roadster has 550 hp, wide fenders, and other performance goodies that set it apart from the more pedestrian AMG GT and AMG GT S.
Then I asked him about the possibility of a GT R roadster. The top-of-the-line GT R makes 577 horsepower thanks to revised turbos, finessed exhaust ports, altered compression, and the software tweaks to make it all work together. We saw the coupe version at its reveal back in June, and at that point Moers said that more variants would definitely follow. We've seen that in the roadster models, and a GT R roadster would round out the lineup nicely.
"And GT R convertible?" Moers laughed when I asked him about it. "I don't know. It's just a discussion going on, we talked about it in the company, but I don't know the market potential about that."
That's definitely not confirmation, but Moers was clear enough that AMG is talking about the possibility. It's also worth noting that the GT R roadster isn't on the leaked product roadmap, although that isn't necessarily a bad sign.
In any event, expect at least one more AMG GT variant that should be exciting enough as it is.
