    Overall design is great. I love the clean side treatment. Chrome strip between the hood and fender needs to go. Looks like it has LED DRLs. They will be as dated as clear taillight lenses in a few years.

    Indeed the car looks cool and production ready. Cadillac should just build it, drop the stubid name and call it Eldorado.

    Press release saying that it'll happen will make me start saving instantly

    Look at cadillac most recent release, the elr! That was identical to the concept! I hope this is the same way.. I hope it beats the crap out of the s-class coupe!!

    I am sure we are all aware it is just a concept geez

    The ELR I think they used part of the Converj/140S concept from a few years ago.

    And it didnt stop them from releasing the 5th gen Camaro based exactly off of the concept with only minor changes.

    Re: New Cadillac concept coupe The Elmiraj

    I love this new coupe why cant Cadillac be like DODGE they came out with the VIPER concept and the actuall car was almost a dead ringer for the concept car.
    Cadillac should just go for broke and build a Top end coupe like the S class coupe 6 series coupe or Bentley cometitor.
    If the car was big bold like the concept i would be the first to drop my $100k on a car like this .
    Cadillac was once the envy of the whole world they can be that again they just have to be daring enough to go for it and not chicken out.

    Re: New Cadillac concept coupe The Elmiraj

    I'm really liking it. Since this is only a concept cars and usually it is only "design cues" that actually make it into production, it is very nice to see Cadillac upping the ante on themselves. I really like the looks of the ELR, which is close but not the same as the concept. The ATS coupe has potential from the camo photos I've seen. So, I'm hoping they integrate some of these design cues in future models. One thing that I don't like on this concept is a it's about a foot too long for me. 200+ inches is a foot longer than my coupe right now.

    Also must comment on those saying use Eldorado. I totally disagree. Like it or not Cadillac has chosen to evolve. Yes, like many carmakers these days, they are an alphanumeric soup of a name that is less imaginative than the classics, but I for one would not buy an Eldorado. I'm not retired yet and Cadillac's goal is to bring in younger buys. Eldorado is the antithesis of Cadillac's goal. In fact, Elmiraj, I think, is a good homage to the past while integrating a new name. Just like the Ciel, I doubt that name gets used anyway.

    Again I reiterate, the CTS coupe is almost identical to the concept.

    Re: New Cadillac concept coupe The Elmiraj

    yes some concept cars are very close to the production car Converj/ELR, Camaro, XTS ... but we are told at the time the 'concept' is released that it is going to be produced

    with these cars they are saying exactly the opposite - they are not going to produce an Elmiraj
    it is a proper concept ... not just a pre-production vehicle that's called a concept at an auto show

    I don't remember. How did they position the CTS coupe?

    Re: New Cadillac concept coupe The Elmiraj

    not a true concept ... same as the XTS and Camaro ... basically "here's the car that we will be selling next year"

    they often use terms like "Cadillac will unveil the production version of the xxx concept at the NAIAS in January" in these types of situations

    the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance is usually where Cadillac unveils "true" concept vehicles
