    Wonder if that information is accurate?

    How did he come up with exactly 1200 V wagons? Aren't 14's going to be available?

    Re: 1,200 CTS-V Wagons?

    Huh. So they're suggesting 1200 out of 7000 wagons were V models, which is 17%. But as they point out, the V wagons made profit after the first 5 of them sold, so the real problem was that they didn't sell enough regular CTS wagons, and making profit on 1195 V wagons wasn't enough to cover the tooling costs for the wagon model. I guess we can only hope that they decide making all that profit on all those wagons was something they'd like to do again, and make a V3 V wagon.

    The comments on that link are hilarious. My favorite:

    "I’d like to buy that 0.005% a drink, but chances are they are too busy being awesome."

    Hell, yeah! But I'll take an O'Doul's, thanks, I don't drink alcohol.

    Edit:


    So we have a part of the numbers I asked for in my recent thread.

    I'm not convinced those numbers are accurate.

    Well, Cadillac isn't giving up the information willingly. The numbers may, or may not, be accurate. We'll see....

    Re: 1,200 CTS-V Wagons?

    BTW, how does the VIN break down? Are all CTS's part of the same VIN sequence each year? Or are there different sequences for coupe/sedan/wagon? Or for V/non-V?

    I believe the 8th character in the vin is a P for the V's. I don't know about body styles or number sequencing.

    VIN characters, explained. So it goes into body type and engine. So the engine digit would define a CTS as a V. Then the Sedan/Coupe/Wagon would be differentiated from body code there.

    Re: 1,200 CTS-V Wagons?

    Based on my VIN, it appears there is a single sequence for the entire Cadillac CTS range, and they've built over 73,000 in MY2013.

    Either that or there are a LOT more Vagons out there....

    BTW, it's just marvelous that the CTS-V Wagon line/series/bodystyle is DV8.

    Re: 1,200 CTS-V Wagons?

    I just picked up a used 6spd v-wagon a few weeks ago and am delighted to hear that it might be 1 of 1200. I like rare vehicles and I think it's great that these are this rare the only down side is that it probably means there won't be a next gen version of the wagon.

    I thought GM already announced no more wagons. I could be wrong but I thought I read that here.

    I read the same thing but I was holding out a little hope that it would just come later like the current coupe and wagon did for this body style.

    Re: 1,200 CTS-V Wagons?

    GM already said there will be no 3G wagon.

    Of course, you never know for sure...

    Only 8600 CTS wagons (V or otherwise) overall sold, worldwide, as opposed to somewhere north of 250k 2G SRXs. The beancounters won't be approving one, not without a risk taker like Bob Lutz around to push/encourage such a nutso idea. God we Americans are dumb in our (collective, not me personally) love for prissy CUVs.
