During a Web-chat held on General Motors' FastLane blog, GM's former product head and newly appointed Vice Chairman, Bob Lutz, sat down with the unwashed throngs to take questions and a deliver a few tender morsels to the product obsessed.

Chief among them was Lutz' confirmation that a Cadillac CTS-V coupe is on the way. "As of now," Lutz told the assembled Netizens, "the V package is planned only for the sedan and coupe." As for more CTS-V models - specifically a Sport Wagon variant - Lutz said, "... should sufficient demand materialize, there is no reason why we couldn't do a V-Series wagon, and I would be standing in line for one, just ahead of you." That doesn't sound encouraging, but at least it's on the table.

Lutz also discussed the possibility of the Pontiac G8 being branded as the Caprice and said, "...we're studying the feasibility of bringing it in as a Caprice for both law enforcement and the public."

Lutz when on to address questions about GM's green image, alternative fuels and powertrains, some of his controversial statements from the past and his affection for Jeremy Clarkson. You can read it all here, and hope these chats become a regular occurrence from GM execs.

Bob Lutz is an absolute pleasure and I'm glad he's still with GM. I encourage all of you to read the transcript of this discussion.

as usual, engaging and informative. but now more than ever, sensing liberty and true and complete openness and understanding. lutz understands all of what needs to get done to further the design of personal transport, and fully transform the quality offered.

Who's going to be there for the next one to ask Lutz about the FWD Caddy situation?

So Fritz and Lutz have the good cop bad cop thing going.

I agree that they need to talk to the public in this webchat method more often.
