    I highly doubt backward compatibility (at least not easily) since the new diff has wires interfacing it to the PCM

    Anywho- back on topic. I like the current CTS/CTS-V better at this point. Some of the things about the new model are pretty cool but some of it is dog ugly. I wont be able to make any kind of decisions until this thing comes out.

    At this point I would probably not buy the next CTS or CTS-V just based on what I have seen.

    The new V driveline and suspension speculations sure give me a woody but if Im not attracted to the body who cares. Its like dating a broad for whats inside!! F THAT!!! LOL!!

    I got plenty of time to decide as Im not quite baller enough (or silly enough) to pay 300+ per month for insurance. i have pretty much ruled out all truly high performance cars until I am 30 years old and my insurance rates are reasonable.

    At this point it looks like I will probably end keeping my current CTS FOREVER and then when I turn 30 I will get the new V8 G8 for my race car! HEHEHE

    I will always own at least one caddy for the rest of my life. Its a vow I took when I got my first CTS!

    Thats probably a good thing as as the C6 Z06 guys all seem to hate the on-track performance of the GM 6-Pots.
    Words like caliper flex and brake fade and stupidly expensive pads are what I am hearing.
    The Z06 6-pots are not Brembo BTW.

    Ahhh, aesthetics. "It's gorgeous!!" "It's crap!!"

    I can only speak for me. I was unsure about the new CTS based on the pictures I saw, but fell in love when I saw it in person in Dallas. I know two more things:

    The V version is going to look different. V guys, remember that it's only small styling tweaks that make our current CTS-Vs look remarkably different from the standard CTS.

    You can't believe anything, and I mean anything, that you see on a development mule. If you kept track of all the base CTS test cars, you saw that the lights, grills, door handles, etc. varied significantly between them. Same with the body panels: vent holes on some; not on others. For all we know, to get the test pig pictured above, maybe they attached a big ugly piece of aluminum to the hood at the last minute just to accomodate a blower kit that hasn't been optimized to fit with the new engine bay / hood. Our maggie kit for our current CTS-V came THIS CLOSE to requiring a custom hood.

    I won't know nuttin bout no stylin until next year. I suspect I'll be at whichever auto show hosts the V debut.

    I love the look of the base car and the interior is a huge bonus. Some fat tires and some ground effects are only going to make it look better.

    I saw the car somewhere, very sharp.

    Will 09 "V" have different rear end

    Just wondering if anyone has heard if the 09 V will have a new rear end since it has the increase in HP? If so could this be the fix for our rear end or should I go ahead and look into having a solid one built now. I was holding off since my warranty doesn't end until 2011 but I'd really like to get a procharger put on.

    Re: Will 09 "V" have different rear end

    I would bet my pink slip on the 09 V having a different diff. And, I would probably put the same bet on the 09 V diff not being backwards compatible with the current generation V.

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    It will not have the northstar ,that motor is old and being replaced. My bet is on a ls motor of some sort 500+hp. The racing program will continue without a hitch and will keep winning. Another point, this is a test mule and that is it. Maybe ZERO production bits on it even the grill. Have you seen any of the test mule photos of the super vette? All of them are a standard Z06 with a crappy hood bulge just like the V. They will not produce a super Vette that looks like a plain Z06 not for north of a 100k! Remember the ZR-1 I have a gut fealing that GM just might get it right We may all like the current style better but we really have nothing yet to compare. All I can say is ,this is going to be a BEAST with a warranty God bless America

    I agree, backwards compatible is probably wishful thinking.

    However, if some resourceful, enterprising soul were to engineer a way to do it for under, say, $1k ... .

    Will the 20" wheels make it to production?

    What, no AWD on the mule?

    Wires.
