Is it just me...or does that seem a little "under-whelming". Or am I just being un-realistic?

    BTW...to keep all things equal...was it the same driver for the VSport as it was for the V1 'Ring lap? Some may argue this point....however it is just another controllable variable that could rule out some quantifable variances on that incredibly technical course.

    Either way....6 seconds....hmmm....
    6 seconds on the any race track is a good amount of time gained even on something like the ring.

    Bingo!

    Comparing lap times from a decade apart is pretty much worthless. The intarweb fascination with 'Ring times is silly.
    They werent silly when the v2 laid down its fast lap and we all got frothy over it.

    Re: 2014 #Cadillac #CTSVsport recorded a lap almost 6 seconds faster than the 1st gen

    I got to see the CTS VSport on Monday and really liked it. (Cadillac event, not a dealer)

    Very nice interior upgrades, beefy steering wheel, much much much better interior than the V2. Then again I like the V1 interior much more than the V2.

    Anyway, this VSport is solid. And new CTS platform should be a winner.

    V coupe beside VSport showed that the V and VSport brakes are identical (6 pot Brembos) and the VSport runs 18" wheels (275/35R18 rear). I think the VSport stole a good bit of the V2 "goodies".

    FWIW The big surprise in my book was how wonderful the XTS Platinum interior was. Suede everywhere! And the most comfortable seats ever... Too bad it isn't RWD or have a V-8 (I know I'm old school)

    The back to back driving of the 2014 CTS vs 2013 CTS Coupe was dramatic, same 3.6. You will like it.

    The new 2014 V3 is going to be beast!!!

    hopefully they don't need that nonsense when the real V comes out.

    I find that on so many levels the newer the car the less I like it. I really think the V1 will probably be the last new high performance cars I buy. The whole electronic "driving aids" don't interest me a bit.

    I cannot believe caddy has sunk this low. I can't even test drive the car now because I will harass the Sales guy and he doesn't deserve this for a bad descision on an engineer's (or his Manager's) part.
