Mercedes-Benz has confirmed plans to reveal a convertible version of the S-Class Coupe by the end of the year. The S-Class Cabriolet will look nearly identical to the coupe, but will get a cloth soft top.
Likely billed as a 2017 model, the S-Class Cabriolet will most likely debut this fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show before it goes on sale in the spring of 2016. The S-Class Cabriolet will borrow its powertrains from the rest of the S-Class lineup, which means that the S550 will be powered by a 4.7L V8 with 455 horsepower, while a more powerful S600 will get a 530 horsepower 6.0L V12. It remains to be seen if an S63 Cabriolet is in the cards.

Mercedes-Benz has also confirmed that the S-Class lineup will eventually grow to six models: the short and long-wheelbase versions of the standard S-Class, the S-Class Coupe, the Maybach-badged model, the Cabriolet and an even more expensive and luxurious version that’s currently called the Pullman.
