    This is fairly standard practice, although I agree that it is frustrating. IIRC the current gen M3 was introduced after the 3-series had been available for some time. Cadillac is smart to introduce a "tweener" vehicle like the Vsport - the power specs (and fuel economy of a twin turbo) will enable it to compete nicely in the entry-lux class. As a CTS-V owner, I roll my eyes at the badging, but with all the F-sports, IPLs, SS models, S-types, etc, it makes sense.

    I'm in the same boat with my 2009. Fortunately, it has been a great car and continues to amaze me. We probably won't be able to purchase a V3 for 1.5-2 years, so I'm waiting to see how the ATS-V turns out. If it has a 6 cyl. engine, I will look at a C7 or maybe a Chevy SS, if offers a higher performance V8 and the TR6070 at the time.

    They sold a '14 V because there was demand. They never release a V version until the new model has a year on the market.

    End of story. You've had a V. If you came here for info and not a money grabbing salesman, you'd have no problems...

    Cadillac is the latest on the bandwagon:

    BMW does it with M trim cars, Lexus now has F Sport cars, Audi has S Sport cars (basically every A7 I see has "s sport" wheels and badging, etc etc.
