    Spying: Cadillac ATS Coupe

    It has been speculated and talked about for months on end, and it now seems to be real. New spy photos released yesterday show that there is an ATS coupe in development.

    The photos reveal a mule looking like the current CTS coupe running around. The indication that has everyone believing that its an ATS coupe; the proportions. The mule appears to be using a short wheelbase, not a long one like you would see on the CTS coupe.

    We'll be keeping a close eye on this story and report if we have any new updates.

    I have hopes for this. It appears to be a fastback, but the ass end is not as high and obese as the current CTS coupe.

    My expectation is for the ATS coupe to be quite conservative: more of an A4-to-A5 roofline change than something radical. A CTS coupe (or an Omega-based Eldorado) should be where the styling envelope is pushed in a more dramatic way, IMHO.

    I agree, keep the ATS a bit conservative and go after the bulk sales just like BMW has done with the 3 series and then let the CTS family be radical. After all for those spending north of 60-70K they tend to like to stand out more.

    the renderings and mules I have seen are boring, I know that is what BMW does, and I don't think the current CTS coupe look is right for the car either. But I would like to see the ATS coupe be something besides uber conservative.

    Before I get all worked up I think I may just let them pull off the covers and see this before I get an idea of if I like it or hate it. I might just do something silly like even wait till I see it in person to better opinion.

    Watched a CTS-V coupe roll slowly by me at a local car show today- still looks awesome. Hope the ATS coupe steals a bit of the swagger the CTS coupe does so well, and doesn't come off boring/generic like a 3-series 2-dr.

    Saw a brand new Black AWD ATS today on the way in, still had the paper in the window and no plates. I think it was probably bought this weekend and the one thing I really liked about it was the 3rd light Trunk lid spoiler. It really makes the car look good. :)
