When the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT was conceived, it's pretty clear that the three-pointed star had taking on the legendary Porsche 911 in mind.

Why else would the company switch from building a luxury GT like the SLS AMG to something with better driving dynamics? And likely to be priced for the same amount of coin as a 911?

It's pretty obvious the company has taken dead aim on the Porsche.

But has it succeeded? Well, it depends what you make of this short take put out by an overseas publication. According to them, it goes down something like this.

Essentially, the Porsche is tried and true. The 991 Turbo is stupid fast with its PDK gearbox and all-wheel drive set up. But, if I am reading this right, it seems that it's just a bit clinical.

The Mercedes-Benz, on the other hand, is silly fast and feels great around corners though it isn't as precise.

More or less, these are the characteristics we've grown accustomed to when comparing the likes of Mercedes and Porsche. Is it necessarily a BAD thing? I think not. It's good both cars are different.

However, if given the budget and opportunity, WHICH would YOU put in YOUR driveway? The proper Porsche or the mighty Mercedes?
