Time Is Limited To Order These Stunning Mercedes Grand Tourers

Luxury / Comments

The end is near.

We've known for at least a month now that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and Convertible are not set to receive successors. While the Mercedes S-Class Sedan flagship is safe, the market for ultra-expensive big coupes and convertibles is not what it once used to be and, therefore, is no longer financially viable for the German automaker. When will those two S-Class variants officially end production?

According to a new report from Mercedes-Benz Passion, it'll be a lot sooner than you think. Both are slated to end production this August and orders will only be taken until sometime in May. In other words, if you want to buy either one, you need to act fast. Although Mercedes will no longer sell these two luxury grand tourers, it does appear a next-generation SL-Class is on the way.

It will basically fill the slot for both the two-door S-Class variants. Although official confirmation from Mercedes has not yet arrived, the timeline does make a lot of sense. Remember, like its BMW and Audi competitors, Mercedes is moving full steam ahead with its lineup of all-electric vehicles.

The Mercedes EQC crossover has already arrived and the EQS sedan flagship will debut sometime in 2021. It will be even more luxurious than the S-Class and built on an all-new platform. Rumors claim it'll have upwards of 500 horsepower and around a 300-mile driving range.

The S-Class, currently in its sixth-generation, was last refreshed for the 2017 model year following its 2014 debut. Given its age, we expect a successor to come in the near future as well. The need to save money and invest heavily in new technologies may also force Mercedes to retire two other models, the CLS-Class and GT 4-Door. Two four-door coupes may no longer be necessary but there's a chance they'll be replaced by a single model in the coming years.
