German media is reporting Mercedes-Benz will open the order books for the C-Class Coupe in September 2015.

The next derivative to join the C-Class lineup will be the coupe (codenamed C205) and it will happen in September 2015 when the model will make its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Mercedes-Benz will start taking orders right away while deliveries will commence sometime in December.

This latest report from Germany makes sense taking into account a couple of weeks ago a slideshow depicting the firm's plans for 2015 emerged and the C-Class Coupe was listed with a November 2015 release, although it wasn't specified whether it's a reveal or launch date.

Following the coupe's introduction, Mercedes-Benz will launch in 2016 the C-Class Cabriolet (A205) with a fabric roof. Both coupe and open-top versions will inherit the engine lineup from the sedan and wagon, all the way up to the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter powering the C63 AMG versions where it's offered with 476 HP & 650 Nm in the regular version and with 510 HP & 700 Nm in the C63 S.
