Mustache-Benz boss Dr. Dieter Zetsche has been quoted saying a Mercedes-Maybach SUV is "most likely!"

Gather 'round, kiddies, because it's time for a feature I've decided to call Story Time With Uncle Doug. Here's how it works: first, I spend hours writing an excellent, brilliantly researched story of great personal interest, possibly related to Land Rover.

The Time A Mercedes Took Porsches And Fear To Le Mans

In the seventies, coachbuilder Robert Smenk of Stuttgart created two transport trucks for Porsche. They were designed specifically for their long-tail Le Mans prototypes using a pair of 1968 Mercedes-Benz bus chassis.
