Theophilus Chin is back with a couple of renders showing a hypothetical coupe conversion for the Mercedes-Benz SLK.

It is too late now for the SLK to receive a coupe derivative but that hasn't stopped Theophilus Chin from creating what he believes would be a worthy rival to the Porsche Cayman. Maybe the next-gen SLK set to be commercialized starting 2018 will spawn a fixed roof version since in recent years Mercedes-Benz has developed a habit of coming out with several versions of the same model.

Until then, the current SLK which came out back in 2011 will likely receive a facelift sometime next year and it will be one of the company's models to be affected by the new nomenclature so the refreshed model will get the SLC name to point out its connection to the similarly sized C-Class.
