    • Upcoming Mercedes SLC Porsche 911 competitor delayed indefinitely, deemed too expensive - Model put under "observation"

      This is a rather unfortunate piece of news for enthusiasts who were anticipating the Mercedes competitor to the Porsche 911. This was going to be a rather exciting model from an enthusiast standpoint being far lighter and sportier than the SL yet cheaper than the SLS. The executives on Mercedes Board of Directors thought the car was too expensive as proposed. They have decided to put the model under observation which means it is not cancelled entirely but that the engineers have a chance to retool it and cut costs. Regardless, prospects on the SLC getting the green light are grim at this point.

        It likely won't be released at all.

        I seriously doubt it would get the M157 but it is a moot point since it isn't coming anyway.

I think this would be really expensive and also some parts for cars of this benz will be expensive too. By the looks of it i think the performance of this will be great. If they add some turbo upgrades i think this will be the king of the road Click here to enlarge
