Mercedes-Benz started the rumor mill when it replaced the old CLK with the E Class Coupe and the cabriolet version of the same model, allowing for plenty of speculations on whether or not the smaller C Class would follow, taking the fight to both the BMW 1 and 3 Series.
After revealing that a C Class coupe is definitely in the Mercedes plan, InsideLine now ups the ante and says that while MB is at it, a cabriolet version might also follow after the two-door variant, when it will possibly be launched around 2011.
Power options are the same as the ones rumored for the coupe: a lineup of V6 engines, which might be joined by a high performance unit from the AMG division, presumably the rumored 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8.
These two new models will certainly be welcomed by MB fans which wanted something to go against the recently facelifted 3 Series coupe and cabriolet, and the same variants of the 1 Series. Whether or not we will actually see them is still up in the air.
