C Class coupe confirmed for 2011

Mercedes Benz has made it official: the 2011 C-Class Coupe is on its way. The German luxury automaker has announced that it will build the two-door C-Class at its massive Bremen plant, which is already churning out the C-Class sedan, wagon, GLK, SL and SLK. Production for the C-Class Coupe is scheduled to begin in 2011. The C-Coupe Coupe will replace the CLC model and will likely be sold at about the same time as the facelifted C-Class four-door and five-door versions.

The addition of the Coupe gives Mercedes Benz three different variants of the C-Class, with a convertible almost certainly to follow. With the introduction of the C Class Coupe, it will be interesting to see how the German automaker plans to differenttiate the new model with its bigger brother, the E-Class Coupe. The bi-door E-Class already utilizes the C-Class platform, and the more expensive E Coupe is almost identical in every dimension to the C-Class saloon. Mercedes may shorten the C-Class platform to better differentiate the C Coupe from the larger E Coupe.

Anyway, it's a good bet that we'll know a lot of these answers by the time the Paris Motor Show opens its doors to the media in September 2009.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
