We've already shown you the possible abomination that Mercedes plans on performing to an otherwise beautiful car, in the form of the S-Class convertible. However, the photoshop gurus over at Brenda Priddy and Co. have taken the speculation to the next level with a front, three-quarters rendering of the 4-door drop top.
Although much prettier than the previous photo, we think its unlikely that the new convertible will go beyond its show car debut, supposedly in Detroit, and make it to a dealership near you.

      Why are side repeaters not a federal law by now?!

      I knew the Lincoln Continental 4-door convertible. The Lincoln Continental 4-door convertible was a friend of mine. S-Class 4-door convertible, you're no Lincoln Continental 4-door convertible.

      If you think a this is bad then check out a 4 door convertible maybach: http://www.vgdauto.com/maybach.html .

      Gross! It's still a tired POS! MB has turned into such a joke. People actually think of Lexus as being a better premium brand over this German crap. How sad is that?

      I personally think they need to bring back the 4 door convertible segment.

      I actually like big cars and big convertibles would be nice.

      But if you're gonna harp on convertibles then only idiots drive convertibles period, because really most small convertibles are totally impractical cars.

      Pointless, perhaps, and certainly gaudy, but an abomination? I don't know. I personally find a drop-top S-class easier to swallow than Mercedes' jumping on the full-size SUV bandwagon.

      Anyway, I agree that production seems unlikely, if only for one reason: in a car this long, how would M-B keep wind buffeting from ruining rear-seat riders' $200 haircuts?

      "6. Pointless, perhaps, and certainly gaudy, but an abomination?"

      "3. Only idiots drive 4 seater convertibles. Embarrasing car to drive"

      -Well you guys, I think this idiot could manage *just fine* all up in this Benz :-) Yeah, I think I could live.

      NOW a 2 door s-class convertible (CL Class) with a v-12 and a retractable hardtop would be a super bentley killer( that car has a soft top ).It would also steal the thunder of the upcoming corniche convertable( also a soft top)and cost 10's of k's less.I can see the 3-way coparos on the magazine stands now.

      Anyone driving a merlot colored 4 door s-class convertible has long since passed even big pharma's ability to give him the capacity to handle three women in a night.

      A computer-generated image is NOT a spy shot. So the headline is nonsense!

      convertibles are for picking up women.
      If you are rich, a 4-seat convertible is great for you to have 3 women at once.
      Only middle class people drive a 2-seater.
      With this, you have three times the capacity for the same night.

      Guess you don't remember 4 door Lincoln covertibles, they sold very well. As to length, well I'd willing to bet a 2 door 59 Caddy was longer than these.

      It looks good and even more important it would sell. The problem is lots of folks only think about the American market.
