    They could certainly put the 400+ horsepower TT V6 in a non-V ATS but that would compete closely with the M3. What would the ATS-V compete with then? It would be way overkill for the M3 and not a hell of a lot better than the TT ATS - which would be easily modified faster than the ATS-V.

    I believe that. There will surely be ways to boost that engine up to around 400 horsepower or so.

    I think most of us want a V8 ATS-V. And I think we must accept we are probably not going to get one.

    Hopefully GM's TT V6 turns out to be a winner. A high performance TT V6 Camaro has been in the plans for at least five years so I'm sure they've been testing it a long time. I wish I knew what the latest delays are all about.

    Maybe they know how many buyers are going to tune it and they are trying to decide what to do about the drivetrain.

    Maybe. If even one model will be very tunable than even the 2.5 will sell being its an enthusiast car that everybody has to have.

    Re: IF the Cadillac ATS-V gets a V8...

    Probably too much to ask for, but it would be interesting to imagine a TT 3.6 in the ATS-V, and a supercharged V8 in an ATS-VR, the latter being a limited production halo car.

    Okay, back to reality ...

    exactly, minus the $132K price tag. I'd be willing to spend $70-80K for an ATS-V 'black' edition.

I think GM is the only manufacturer left who is widely using them.
    Bently as well.

    Probably wrong thead to post this, but it was pretty cool seeing the ATS ad GM ran in the Super Bowl last night. Could've sworn both those inside tires were off the pavement during the slo-mo part.

    They were, I enjoyed everyone's reaction to it. I like seeing people think of a Cadillac as "basass" way more than dealing with the "that's an old man car" reaction.

    The 6.2 with 470 hp was one of the first motors to be speculated as being in the ATS-V. Not that we all wouldn't drool over this one, this is actually old news.
