    Re: Mercedes SLC - 911 Rival

     “It is going to make the 911 seem old-fashioned,” said one source, describing not only its appearance but also its construction, which centres around a lightweight aluminium structure similar to that used by the SLS

    Holy crap, that's how the SLS should have looked like from the beginning ! By the way, the render is clearly based on a SLS photo so I'm pretty sure the SLC is not going to look anything like that.

    Pentium:
    I really like the looks of it. Now Mercedes just need to do something stupid and destroy the looks of the production car :(

    Don't get too excited, it's just a RENDERING...autocar's rendering to be precise. It has NOTHING to do with what the production car will look like. What they did was take a photo of the SLS and mess around in photoshop (they just changed the headlights and bumper). The result: A SLS that looks a lot better than the current one (which is spoiled by the angular headlights). That said, I hope the facelifted SLS will look like that.

     New article from Autobild.de  (23/2011).

    Any comments? (911  and SLC)

    Re: Mercedes SLC - 911 Rival

    If there will be an SLC, does it mean that the SL Roadster will go back to canvas roof?

    Is it clear, if the SLC will be a 2 seater or a  2+2?

    As regards the SLC vs 911 comparison, IMO the SLC will be another option for the sports car buyer especially if the Mercedes will be a 2+2.

    Baby SLS model, the SLC, will rival the Porsche 911 and feature more than a baby-like 500 HP 

    New details are emerging on the upcoming Mercedes-Benz 'baby SLS'.  This time German car magazine Auto Bild is reporting that the so-called SLC will sport up to 500 PS (368 kW / 493 bhp) and be positioned as an arch-rival to the Porsche 911.  For reasons of cost, the SLC would lose the gullwing doors of the larger SLS AMG model, and an entry-level model with around 350 PS (257 kW / 345 bhp) will cost less than €100,000.  Auto Bild says there are two scenarios for the SLC - one is an introduction of its own in 2014. The other is that the model becomes a successor to the SLS and replaces it in 2016.

    At €100,000 for the entry-level car, I'm not so sure it will affect 911 sales too much. Smiley

    Well, I don't think the 911 will be any cheaper by then. Smiley
