If the AMG GT is the self-proclaimed answer to Porsche’s 911, then the GT 4-door deals with the Panamera head-on. In the past, that would have been the job of the CLS 63 AMG but perhaps Mercedes thought there wasn’t enough sports car DNA in that package. The GT 63 S 4-door, on the other hand, spent more of its upbringing around the track – it even has all the pre-loaded track telemetry you’d need to share with absolutely nobody.
As for styling, this segment is a bit of an open goal; the upcoming BMW M8 Gran Coupe is probably the best of a mediocre bunch. Styling of these sporty GTs is an eternal compromise and the GT 63 struggles to juggle brutality with beauty. Still, it possesses more on-road presence versus a Panamera, the same status quo as an AMG GT over a 911. Rear space with individual rear seating is spacious albeit not bristling with S-Class type lux and the boot extends far into the wheelbase. So long as you don’t pack too high, you’ll be fine.
