Copy group permssions to new group in SharePoint 2013

Is it possible to copy a group's permissions, for example, Team site Members, to a new group name, have all of the permissions copy over and then assign people to the new group to use in SharePoint?  Is so, how is it done?  We want to tweak some of the permissions for a group but we want to keep the original groups permissions in tack and set up a new group that we can play with the permissions.

Thanks,
John

Hello Colly92002,  

I don't want to copy the permission levels but the groups under Site Settings --> Users and Permissions --> Site Permissions where a list is displayed that have items such as Approvers, Designers, Team Site Member, Team Site Owners, etc.  I want to see if there is a way to copy one of those groups.  For example, I want to copy Team Site Members to a new group called Company Site Members.  If I cannot do the copy what is the best way to make sure I have all of the permissions under Team Site Members so that I can create a new group called Company Site Members and make sure they have the same permissions.
