    Another speculation...

    The coupe could have a V too?

    I hope so!

    Hello,
    This has already been confirmed. They will have a CTS-V Coupe shown next year.

    Thank you,

    Let's hope that the CTS-V coupe will weigh much less than the sedan version. I can't believe that a mid-size car like the CTS-V sedan weighs as much if not more than a Mercedes or BMW. With the Corvette, the engineering team does everything they can to shave the curb weight, but the CTS-V seemed to gain a lot more weight over the 04-07 CTS-V. I guess they just topped on as much crap as they could to the car without a care as to the curb weight.

    If the CTS-V weighs 4200-4300 lbs. at least give it 600+ hp so that the car won't feel so heavy. At that weight and with that size engine, god knows what the gas guzzler tax is going to be on the window sticker.

    GM did an amazing job with the car, but the weight is a big factor for fuel economy and acceleration, etc.

    I am still going to get the 2009 CTS-V, but my biggest problem with the car is it's weight!

    I would not worry a lot about acceleration ;-)

    Do some photoshop on the coupe to imagine the convertible.

    Thanks for the confirmation on the coupe-V. Sorry bringing it up again.

    Re: Another speculation...

    So, being "shown next year" makes a CTS-V Coupe a possibility as early as . . . . 2011?

    The CTS-V for 2009
    The CTS-V Coupe for 2010
    The CTS-V Coupe for 2011?

    The CTS Coupe is was "shown" as a concept car.

    Well, they had that very Coupe practically concept ready in 2006, so I wouldn't worry about possibly being ready for september 2009. I mean, it is possible, but I was just wondering if they would do it. Haven't followed the media lately and was pleasantly surprised about the "reveal" on this forum.

    Re: Another speculation...

    I think the coupe will be right on the heals of the sedan. I hear it's even better looking than the sedan but if the pictures I saw are the real-deal, I'm not feeling it personally. Anybody have some links to pics?

    what about the rear? I'm not sure if I like it. The front is fantastic!

    Re: Another speculation...

    Just got my latest Autoweek and don't you know there's pictures in there. Don't see what all the interest is. Don't like the side or even rear 3/4 view for that matter. Looks okay from the front and front 3/4 view but that's about it IMO.
    And what's with that stupid-looking vent?
