Interested custom taillight treatment.. :) I see the wierd doorhandles are still there... that was the one detail on the concept I didn't like.

The best I can say is BUTT UGLY. I do mean just the back of the car. The trunk is too high up into the rear window. Has anyone at GM seen a modern coupe recently???? This is looking as bad as the last failed GM coupe ( the G6). No wonder GM believes people don't want to buy coupes.

I love it. The wagon suits my needs better, but I wouldn't hesitate on the coupe if I felt it would work for me.

It's almost a hatchback like shape, but with a trunk. The shape almost reminds me of a modern interpretation of the wierd '78-80 Olds and Buick A-body coupes.

Something about it reminds me of the M Coupe of years past, but on a larger scale.

That said, I like it.

ETA: Did anyone notice the small "Cadillac" script on the back?

Overall I loev it, but what a lost opportunity to take on

Mercedes' CLK class cars with their ultra-sexy hardtop

styling. GM is great at one thing: compromising. :(

Another chance to make a real, honest to goodness

World-class product that makes no apologies, & here

we are already looking at a ruined product before it

even hits the showrooms and the press have their

stabs at it.

More and more, GM sucks at life. <_<

Would be nice, but Cadillac probably only has 1/100th of Mercedes development budget... :( A hardtop with a rear and greenhouse like the last Eldorado would be great, but not going to happen. (I thought the last Eldo would have made a great hardtop...)

Uh. Nice two-door wagon, I suppose. I really hope it's just the photos making it look so fat, as this does not look sporty, muscular, or athletic whatsoever. It has two doors, but it really doesn't have coupe styling.

There's a post I never expected! :rolleyes:

It's so reliable, the Swiss could build watches from it.

I luv it, I luv it. It will be a stunner on the street. This will be a favorite for adding huge wheels and doing the blvd cruising thing.

It's sexy modern fresh. So glad they went with this fastback look. Man, I want one.

White is not it's color, though..it think it look much better in dark colors, like the sedan does, IMHO...

I think this one will look even better out on the road.

Almost makes me forgive their plans with Pontiac.

The back is too high giving it a hatch look, I agree with Moltar on that. The door looks like it doesn't fit the car, perhaps a test mule problem. The grille is what I have the most problem with, it is all gray plastic, it already looks faded and old, they can't come up with a painted or metal grille like every other luxury car has?

I haven't taken to the CTS Coupe like most others here. It reminds me too much of the Mercedes C-Class hatchback.

Fastback look from the profile or 3/4-view looks quite hot, but the rear bumper comes off as pretty squared off to my eye. I need to see a RP car. Doesn't give me the impression of a hatch; none I know of have that much rake & 'at-speed' attitude. Kudos for bringing back a Cadillac hallmark: thru the bumper exhaust, and not copying BMW by placing it maddeningly off center by 2 inches. Overall it will make a big mark in the lux coupe segment, IMO.

I can't wait to see it in person in 'CTS red'.... (the color used in all the CTS sedan advertising).

Very nice, but I like the wagon more. Since I will be turning 40 next year, I need a place to put the wheelchair. :smilewide:

Heh-heh... the coupe would be a nice 40th birthday gift to myself. Though a Camaro SS convertible would be awfully nice also. We will see come June 2010.
