    Perhaps the V gets different tail lights?

    As for the blown Northstar comment. I hope not. I think it's going to stay with the Vette engine. It NEEDS it. The V IS the 4 door Corvette.

    I too hope for the new blown LSA, but lets face it..the XLR V IS a corvette, and it got the Northstar S/C. Not my first choice, but it's not to be discounted as a likely choice.

    True, but they couldn't put the LS7 in the XLR-V cause then it'd be right on par with the Vette, which is a no-no. With the CTS-V, they can do that, cause the extra weight will slow it down.. And don't take this the wrong way, but I hope you're wrong, lol!

    Yep. It's probably a 2 piece sunroof that looks like 1. I'm betting the front half tilts and slides, and the back just tilts.

    Close, but no cigar- the back is stationary. The front does tilt or slide, and it has a power shade inside.

    Those tail lights are not going to be on the production car. Cadillac heritage is a vertical, thin tail light that will be identical to the new V6 CTS.

    I don't think GM was really worried about protecting the Vette.
    How could stealing some Vette sales with a car that costs 50% more be a bad thing?
    As badly as the XLR-V sold you have to believe they just figured their demographic wrong by assuming they wanted 32V technology and a slushbox trans.
    Hopefully GM wises up and makes the XLR-V a real sports car on its next go around.

    Unfortunately for CTS-V fans you got to figure GM already has a proven track record with Supercharged Northstars in Cadillacs and the CTS-V is a Cadillac.
    I don't know of any other supercharged GM V8's.
    Blue Devil/SS/Z07 can be experimental but I doubt Cadillac will take risks like that.

    On the other hand, Cadillac should use whatever engine in the V that will give them the edge in their racing program.
    That would be normally aspirated LS-7.
    I can't see the rules bieng favorable to them if they go Supercharged.
    Also, on-track reliability would tank.

    Yes, we all want a blower, however the racing program is the only reason we even have a V in the first place.
    Bean Counting Parties don't bring us fast reliable cars, Racing Programs do.
    You can't say you don't giva a crap about that.

    The racing program already brought us the V, so it did it's job. This new car will be about the street, not the track, I think by now it is a foregone conclusion the car will be blown. I still think it will be the LSA, not a blown LS7 as MT states putting down somewhere in the 525 hp range. Just my opinion though.

    I disagree. If they weren't serious about continuing the Race Program they wouldn't have hired Lawson Aschenbach. The GT cars are the #1 reason I doubt the Northstar SC as the engine, since it is nowhere near durable enough for that kind of duty. Supercharged pushrod will be the choice, now it's just a matter of which one (LS3, LSA, LS7, etc...).

    Plenty of race programs are wildly successful running FI engines- just ask Audi.

    Either way works for me, as long as it exceeds 500hp and its not being done by means of a Northstar!
