Nice looking car, but it would seem to have the market to itself. While it might compete with the Cayman, this is too much of a hatchback in the same way the Z3 Coupe was, not like the Cayman is. This is more of a practical car that still has sport for those who want it.

Funny, cause I remember a few years back, seeing (in a German car magazine) the same kind of prototype on the previous generation SLK to compete against the BMW Z cope. But it never came out.

Maybe this one wil have more chances.

I found the old pics. They are from october 97, and the car, named SLC, was supposed to be released in geneva, march 98. I like the greenhouse on this old one better.

It's cool and all, but i can't see why this makes sense and a new sportcoupe doesn't , especially now that BMW has the 1-series.

That looks really cool, I hope this makes it to production. I think MB is needing models like this, to help its image. Can't wait for AMG version

I don't know why this car should sell - Z3 coupe was a flop.

I don't know who should buy this car - I mean, if you can also have a roadster for the price...

I like this a lot. It makes the Crossfire look almost pathetic, but the price gap might make the Crossfire more desirable.
