Aston Vantage to be renamed following Porsche’s objection

Aston Vantage to be renamed following Porsche’s objection

Aston Martin revealed the Vantage GT3 at the Geneva Motor Show after which Porsche objected over the use of the GT3 moniker. Now, a report claims that the Vantage GT3 might be renamed  following the fight with Porsche.

The source claims that lawyers of both the firms have been engaged in a fight over the GT3 name. Rumours indicate that Porsche claimed ownership of the GT3 moniker which Aston challenged that the GT3 moniker is name of a racing category. Aston also claimed that the GT3 name has also been used by other companies namely Bentley Continental GT3R and Lotus Espirit GT3.

It would be unfair to choose a side as both companies seem to be right, but it is cited that Aston didn’t want to continue the expensive legal battle. As a result, the beneficiary is Porsche, and Aston will have to rename the Vantage GT3 as Vantage GT12 claims the report.
