Mercedes-Benz is still hard at work preparing a small sports car that will fight head to head with the Porsche 911, and the brand is testing the car at the famed Nürburgring to hone its handling.
The car is not likely to keep the SLC nameplate once it makes it to the market, likely sometime in late 2014, because Mercedes wants to be clear that this car shares little with the larger SLS sports car. Internally the car is known as the C190.
Can't tell much from the pics, but I'm excited for the SLC to go to toe-to-toe with the mighty 911. It has its work cut out for it (as the 911 is truly a one of kind drive) but I believe MB will get it done
