Daimler to Shutter Maybach?

It looks like declining sales of high end luxury cars may shut the doors at Maybach, the high end subsidiary of Daimler. Increased luxury and technology content of Mercedes S-Class vehicles is expected to further draw customers away from the famed luxury marque. Daimler can't justify the expense of a second brand with limited sales and declining profit, so they will likely focus on taking the next generation of Mercedes S-Class into a new price category.

Recent changes to Maybach vehicles have been cosmetic only, further fueling speculation that the brand has fallen out of favor.
