Spy Shots: Cadillac CTS Coupe spotted undisguised

27 posts in this topic

bilde_optcaddycoupe.jpg

The coming Cadillac CTS Coupe has been photographed almost naked, and as with the new Camaro, it is remarkably true to the concept. While this version in white is said to be a vanilla V6 sample, the CTS Coupe should be hot enough to effectively replace the outgoing XLR as the Caddy with the mostest when it's given some wheels large enough to match the body's presence. As for the timeline, the Coupe remains on schedule to arrive next year, preceded by the CTS Sportwagon, which will arrive this June. Hat tip to Matthew!

I hope they run out of money before they tarnish Cadillac's image with this monstrosity!

The rear end is foul. This car needs major rework from the rear door back!

Um, it's too late for that...what with the FWD SRX, possible Lambda replacement for the Escalade, and possible FWD replacement for the STS/DTS.

No, this is a true Cadillac. It's polarizing but that's ok. It make a s statement. Plus I won't judge it until I see it fully undisguised with some good photography.

In the year 2009 this is supposed to be a premium car, from Cadillac no less? Honest to God it looks like something some high school kid doodled out in study hall. Where is the styling? All the weird pointy shapes in the front end dont match up with the rest of the car. What is supposed to make this some kind of world-class luxury car? Is it extra roomy? No. 300 hp 3.6...wow...I can buy a brand new $18000 pickup with more power. Does the car ride or handle really good? Honestly what car doesn't now days? Gotta love all the injected molded plastic grill and bumpers too...those must cost all of 60 bucks to make. Maybe it has lots of neat cool little buttons all over the center console that light up at night and everything. This may be old school, but when I think luxury I'm thinking mid-eighties Fleetwood. 16 feet of get-the-f-out of my way....my chrome bumpers will blind you in direct sunlight....seats that literally swallow you when you get into them....room to stretch out on a nice vacation or road trip....and ride quality where you could drive through a moon crater with nary a shutter. Would the Fleetwood corner like a sports car? No...it's not a sport car. If you want to do that then drive a Mustang or new Camero.

lolwut?

Calls himself a GMc man and cannot spell CamAro correctly.

If you didn't like the concept, 99.9% chance you won't like the production version either... they seem to be virtually identical.

You would not have a ding in the rear bumper or have to put a sticker saying "My other car is a f$cking American, bitch."

Haha I'd also have a car I didn't want. I've got good insurance for a reason.

...and it was "My other car *IS* American you asshole!" you potty mouth. :D

I'll make this as generic as I can:

I'm glad this car and the CTS wagon are being built...

but I don't like them.

Of course it's good, I'm just pretty sure that no spyshots will look compliment a car like one that's been prepped for a photo shoot, like the photos of your Audi. :P

I don't like it in white, and the rear bumper is very cheesy....looking forward to seeing it person, though.
