    Re: Cts-v discontinued?

    For future CTS-V's, how about a twin turbocharged version of the 3.6L Direct Injection Engine used in the 09 CTS Sedan? Fuel economy would be great as would HP & torque and a there would be lot less weight up front. I'll bet there will be an aftermarket development for this engine especially as it will be the V-6 used in the 2010 Chevy Camaro. Remember the Buick GN of several years ago? A lot of ass got kicked by that car! Our V2 (V3) could be around for a while yet - especially if it were the CTS-V Coupe - with Carbon Fibre in selected areas to reduce body weight. There is no telling how such a machine would perform. Hey guys, all it takes is belief and imagination - that's how worlds are created.

    Keep up the 3/4t and up trucks, they are exempt from CAFE....

    Unless he, "the annoited one" screws that up too.

    If anyone is looking for a V that should do it now.

    Re: Cts-v discontinued?

    Some of you guys are missing the point here. You're saying stuff like recovering R and D costs, public demand, yada, yada, yada. This is a whole new ballgame now and you can not compare it to anything else in past history. The federal government is now running two of the big three. Do you really believe that these idiots calling the shots (feds) give a S_ _ T whether or not you might want a performance vehicle? Come on now, think about it. The Feds are going to stuff shitty little eco boxes down people's throats. When that is the only type of vehicle available, then people will HAVE to buy them! I said it several months ago in my post "my gut feeling" and I still stand by my gut! The V's days are numbered........and it's not a large number.

    I don't think you'll see vehicles like the V disappear. I think you may see them priced at a level that ensures they don't sell in big numbers. It would be a tragedy if GM got out of that game, they've just gotten good at it.

    If times were a little better, I'd go back to suggesting that the automakers need to offer right-brain/left-brain packages. A CTS-V and a Volt, or a Viper and a Fiat 500, etc.

    FRom a source they are gonig to start cracking down on thos and start to lower the vehicles ride height to increase MPG.. Also there is laws being introduced to keep lift trucks off the road ways to because they are not approved from the goverment or insurance companies.

    When we think we have something figured out there is something else to fix and resolve..

    It does not make me happy either.

    Look at the motorcycles and ATV's in the emissions too.

    btw.. there was even talk to keep people out of the lager trucks unless you were a business owner that needed to haul things..

    That didn't pass as of yet..

    to many laws that are not the answer.

    There's going to be price-rationing. Things like CTS-Vs and 2500HD Sierras will be priced at a level to ensure that they pay for whatever damage they do to the company's CAFE numbers.

    BMW, for one, historically hasn't given a flying Philadelphia fornicative act about CAFE, they put the gas-guzzler charge on the window, people pay it, the US Govt sends them a bill for the fine they owe for missing CAFE and they pay it.

    Maybe GM needs to sell CTS-Vs as kit cars...not quite like with the FAA and the 51% rule. Sell the roller for $45K, ship it to the customer with the address of a shop that can install the engine...

    Buy German? WTF -- Why pay the high price when a few mods from the good ole US of A will kick the dog crap out of Any Merc or BMW. Have you ever read Hot Rod Magizine or similar publications? For less than 20K you can make improvements that will have your V2 outrun a stock ZR1 not to say anything about those German products. A modified CTS-V from any number of homeland tuners will run a modified BMW M5 ($150K+ Dinan Stroker) into the ground. And you all know this --- don't you?

    Re: Cts-v discontinued?

    Buying foreign, German, British, Japanese, Korean, whatever, is WHY the big 3 is so screwed.

    People have no concern for keeping profits here in the US. I still look and am very concerned about buying American, I don't give a rats a$$ where it is ASSEMBLED, where is the PROFIT going? Look at it this way items everyone has, cars and cell phones. Blackberry (you know, the one the anointed one, the President uses?), Canadian, Nokia, Finnish, Sony/Erickson, Japanese, Samsung, Korean, etc . Apple/Motorola, American. GM/Ford/ChryCo, American, etc. Sorry boys and girls, people are awfully selfish and WANT to buy foreign and don't really care what it is doing to our economy.

    YES, the car companies have screwed up, big time, but still would buy American when I buy a car, even if used. I do try to even ensure that the car is one that is actually made here given the choice (76 Delta 88, 79 Monza, 94 Fleetwood,80 T/A, 00 Buick Park Ave, 85 Cutlass, 99 Suburban). But the key thing for big ticket items, is MADE HERE IN THE US and PROFITS coming here.

    Remember the old bumper stickers? "Hungry, Eat your IMPORT"... Yeah, like that. America needs to get back to buying American. Buy a used CTS-V then, but don't buy foreign.

    Re: Cts-v discontinued?

    I wouldn't be surprised either, but not sure this is true. Think it's been less than 2 weeks since the guy on GM's cadillac.gmblogs.com guy reiterated that the CTS-V would stay. That was 2 week ago product plans which is like 5 years ago in this age of Government motors product planning. He actually said they are working on new V-Series models without GM HPVO's even existing. Kinda neat, but guessing that also means less extreme V-series models that are more trim level upgrades with power tweaks.

    Anyhow, can't claim for certain this guys news is wrong, but think CTS-V2 will run out whatever life it was supposed to have. I am even guessing there will be a CTS-V3, but doubt it will be as extreme as this one unless they can somehow shave lots of weight from the CTS.

    PS - Not saying a V3 would be a GM Cadillac CTS-V3 either. Could be a Chery Cadillac CTS-V3 for all we know now.
