That's it??!! That's all they're showing. SONOFABITCH! Lutz is such a tease. Still, the car is going to look good but they could've at least shown us a little more!

Wow! The detailing is amazing! I still need to see the whole car, but if that amount of attention-to-detail was paid throughout, we're in for a great-looking car.

Here's a higher-res shot:

DETROIT, Mich. (January 7/8, 2007) - Ed Welburn, GM Vice President, Global Design (left) and Bob Lutz, GM Vice Chairman, Global Product Development, provide a sneak peek of the all-new 2008 Cadillac CTS, which will be fully revealed at Detroit's North American International Auto Show in January. The performance luxury sedan is scheduled to begin production in late-summer of 2007, with worldwide sales to follow in the fall.

Cadillac's first-generation CTS built a strong record of success on many levels since its inception in 2002. Cadillac sold more than 60,000 copies in the U.S. in 2005, compared to roughly 38,000 in 2002, an increase of more than 50% over that period. There are roughly 275,000 CTS owners worldwide, and industry researchers say they are among the most satisfied in the automotive market. AutoPacific rated CTS as the top Entry Luxury Car in its annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards in 2006.

One thing I just noticed: That Cadillac badge is HUGE! Too big, perhaps.

Nah. It's perfect. Proud and large.

I notice the lights are even more angular than before. Cool.

I like all the extra chrome bits. Nice.

THis car looks better than anything in its class. I'm forget the 3, C, IS, A4, MKZ, TL, 300C, and the G.

This car will lead atleast lead this class in terms of style.

And I think this car will lure more buyers from the over priced 3 and C (this car has always been a joke) It will do for Cadillac what the Escalade has.

GM wants this car to have an 'in your face attitude', hence the big wreath and crest. As with the Malibu, I'm dying to see the whole car. Can't wait!

Wow! Thanks. This car is awesome. I wonder if they are going to price it against the 3 series or the 5 series.

I'm willing to bet they'll try and price it a little higher than the 1st gen CTS: a little higher than the 3-series but not as high as the 5-series. I don't see GM taking such a chance without doing some serious STS makeover first.

EDIT: I'm making this picture my new wallpaper

Are you trying to show that the right side of the car is younger than the left one?

Anyways thanks for the complete chop. I think GM has a looker here.

I think you meant the left side is younger then the right.

If you need help figuring out your left from your right.

Hold up both hands and point your index fingers up and point your thumbs in toward eachother. The hand that forms the letter L is your left. The other is your right.

:lol:

LOL Caddy. I am still correct. Watch it more closely. The right side of the car (with younger Lutz) will be on your left side. Edited by 79VetteZ06
