    Exciting. Sounds like it'll be a good competitor to the 335.

    Yes, I hope so. I'm anxious... I'm even more anxious to see who's going to start making tunes and high performance parts...

    I'd double check your sources.

    It will be nice to see the ATS V with a V8 engine in 2014


    Of course a base engine of 2.0 liter turbo 4 from the Solstice GXP would be cool too.

    Just hope it has a dual clutch transmission to complete with the BMW

    Because they are wrong. No TT V6 in the ATS.

    How are you so sure? Also - do you feel the ATS-V might get it? Or are they going to continue missing certain marks like they do with the power in the non-V CTS?

    I'll add you to my mental list of GM insiders.. I think there's a lot of push and shove going on as to what's going to happen in the end - with all their upcoming vehicles...

    ^ Reading comprehension fail. It's a rumor. It could be more, it could be less. Wait and see.

    Hardly do i fail to understand. My response was strictly to the quote of 350 HP. with M3 at 414+- HP.
    Hence my response. I don't think there was any mis-comprehension at all

    Re: Twin Turbo 3.0 Likely Coming To Cadillac ATS

    The ATS-V is planned to have the same V8 as the CTS-V. The ATS-V will be very competitive with the M3. The twin turbo 3.0 liter engine we're talking about here is the mid-range ATS model - which is probably not even happening anymore. We'll probably get the same 3.6 liter direct injected engine in the current regular CTS.

    And it isn't all about power. The ATS-V could still be a faster car with less power. It does happen (refer to Corvette Z06).

    Whoa. 550hp in a smaller-than-a-CTS-V package? Mmmmmmmmm, delicious.
