Mercedes Benz has been forced to admit that the Porsches P1 and P2 are no longer competitive with its flagship, the B-Class.
But that’s not stopping the brand from putting on the show for the first time at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
A Mercedes-Benz official confirmed to AutoBlog that the German brand is preparing to introduce a new version of the Porsche 911, with the P1 expected to debut on the next-generation 919 sedan.
The P2 is currently on sale in the United States, but the company has not yet confirmed a global rollout.
Mercedes-Benz also confirmed that it plans to introduce an all-new model for 2018.
The company plans to launch two new models, the S-Class and C-Class, and is considering several other models for 2019.
While the P3 and P4 have been sold to many buyers in recent years, the company says it is preparing a new line for 2019 with the introduction of the P5 and P6 models.
Merkel is still looking for a buyer for the P7, which is expected to hit the market in 2021.
The brand has also been working on a new, smaller P8, which will be offered in the form of the new P10.
