  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Mercedes Teases C-class Cabriolet, a Smaller, Cheaper Four-Place Benz Convertible

Recommended Posts

Mercedes-Benz C-class Cabriolet teaser


It is an “open secret,” says Daimler on social media: There will be a convertible version of the Mercedes-Benz C-class. This rendering, faithful to the real thing, gives a good glimpse of what customers can expect to see in showrooms later this year.


Mercedes also says that the C-class cabriolet is a four-seater (although the rear seat will be tight), and it will feature a fabric top, just like the Audi A5 cabriolet, but unlike the BMW 4-series—which is fitted with an elaborate and heavier retractable hardtop.


The full list of engine choices have not been revealed yet, but we know that the range will be bookended by the C300 cabriolet with a 241-hp 2.0-liter four, and the Mercedes-AMG C63S Cabriolet with a 503-hp 4.0-liter V-8. In between, Daimler could offer an AMG C43 cabriolet with a 362-hp 3.0-liter V-6. Automatic transmissions are standard. Other markets, by the way, get a far more generous choice of powertrains, including diesels, and a manual transmission.


With a price point below that of its bigger brother, the C-class cabriolet could make life difficult for the current E-class cabriolet, which is still based on the last-generation C-class. A new version of the E-class convertible isn’t likely to appear until mid 2017 at the earliest.


There is no official confirmation, but judging from the timing of this social media unveiling, we expect the C-class cabriolet to be unveiled at the Geneva auto show in two weeks. Stay tuned.
